Thank you to all who attended Alverno's interview day yesterday! It was great to see many future Jaguars on campus!
Today we are honored to welcome Dr. Terrence Roberts to Alverno. Just over sixty years ago in September of 1957, Terrence Roberts and eight other young people became the first African American students at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. These nine students, known as the Little Rock Nine, faced mobs of angry protesters as they tried to enter the school. After several weeks of resistance from both the state and the community, President Dwight D. Eisenhower sent U.S. Army troops to accompany the students to school for protection. However, the Little Rock Nine continued to face violence and discrimination once inside Central High. Terrence Roberts continued his education at California State University, Los Angeles and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in 1967. He received his Master's Degree in Social Welfare from the UCLA School of Social Welfare in 1970, and his Ph.D. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, in 1976. In 1999, he and the other people of the Little Rock Nine were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by President Bill Clinton. Today, he will share his story and vision with our community. We invite alumnae, parents & past parents to join us for this very special presentation.
