The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE), along with other business and labor representatives, announced on Monday, November 11 that a “Day of Service” will be held at two Detroit Public Schools as part of the 41st Annual NABSE Conference.
Nichols Elementary-Middle School and Mark Twain School for Literary Scholars are the selected schools.
The Day of Service is being coordinated as part of the 41st Annual NABSE Conference, November 13-17, where nearly 1,500 African-American educators will convene in the City of Detroit. NABSE President Dr. Bernard Hamilton said the Day of Service is a small gesture on behalf of NABSE members encouraging the community to demonstrate that education is vital to the success of any municipality.
During the Day of Service events, educators will paint the school interior at Nichols Elementary-Middle School in December. All supplies have been donated by Home Depot. At Mark Twain, educators will convene to launch an Art Writing Project. To support the project, NABSE announced a $2,000 donation to Mark Twain.
