JSU To Host Multi-Cultural Workshop on March 22

JACKSONVILLE -- March 19, 2002 -- Jacksonville State University will be hosting a multi-cultural workshop on March 22 in Leone Cole Auditorium from 1:00 until 3:30 p.m.

There will be 206 interns in attendance as well as students from Ragland High School. Ragland has just begun a multi-cultural program at their school and have been very helpful to JSU's interns, who are majoring in this particular career.

Leslie Cash began her internship at Ragland in January and in the few months she has been there she has participated in several activities and projects. For Black History Month, she helped students with a bulletin board that revealed to others the importance of African American heritage. This month the students put together a word board which consists of multi-cultural words and their meanings.

Students from Ragland High School also took part in Reading Across America campaign. Participants went to the elementary school and read to the classes. On March 19, Leslie and other members of the multi-cultural committee will set up a culture fair. Students will literally get a "taste" of different cultures. Committee members will dress the part of Hawaiian residents and greet students with traditional treats native to the Hawaiian Islands.

On March 22, Leslie and some students from Ragland High School will come to the campus of JSU to give a presentation of the success of their multi- cultural program. Also speaking at this event will be Dr. John Ketterer, Dr. Noureddine Bekhouche, and Mr. D. Johnson.
