Minority Scholars Program Holding 10th Annual Retreat March 19–20
The Minority Scholars Program (MSP), a student-led initiative to help narrow the opportunity gap in MCPS, increase the academic success of minority students and foster positive relationships, is going virtual. Its 10th annual retreat will be held March 19–20. This year’s theme, 2021 Vision: Our Rights, Our Voice, Our Power, is a call for change.
Since its inception, MSP has worked to change the conversation around race, equity and the opportunity gap. MSP has chapters in every high school, more than 20 middle schools and two elementary schools. Student leaders have spoken at county, state and national events, spreading the MSP model across the nation.
During the retreat, students will continue to push for equity and accountability, and expect to lay out a clear vision for the future.
An agenda for the retreat is being finalized. It will begin from 4–6 p.m. on Friday, March 19, and continue from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 20.
