The culture of Northern High School is one that has been built on inclusiveness, respect, and compassion. We work to welcome all students into the Husky Family – celebrating all differences. This certainly does not mean our culture is perfect. We must consistently work to provide a culture where ALL students (and adults) feel welcome – welcome to be a part of the Pack and welcome to be themselves.
The Global Learners Initiative students and diversity club work to improve our culture and knowledge. One way they have chosen to do this is to bring back a speaker we have had at FHN a number of times in the past – Dr. Michael Fowlin.
Dr. Michael Fowlin (a.k.a. Mykee) delivers programs on issues of race, discrimination, violence prevention, and personal identity that have been seen by over a million people. His original and powerful presentations bring a heightened awareness of these issues to students, faculty, administrators, and parents. They also suggest SOLUTIONS. Please browse the site and learn more about Mykee and the many ways his performances can impact the community. Mykee will be performing his classic program, “You Don’t Know Me Until You Know Me” for FHN. This is a one-person show that deals with the issues of race, discrimination, violence prevention, personal identity, suicide, gender equity, homophobia, and emotional pain felt by special education children. In a gripping, fast paced 75-minute performance Michael Fowlin slips in and out of nine characters, both male and female, who “share their stories.” The characters do this in an often humorous, but at times, heartbreaking manner.
The presentation will be taking place on Monday, November 5, 2018 during two different sessions in the afternoon. If you wish to not have your child attend this assembly, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main office at 493-8600.
