Good Morning GHS,  I am Chassidy Allen and I am here to present you with a little known black history fact.

Janet Harmon Bragg was born in Griffin Ga and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. In 1933, at the age of 21, Ms Bragg started flying lessons and soon earned her Private Pilot Licence. She purchased an airplane that she could fly and rent to others so that they could learn to fly. This was difficult at the time due to segregation. Eventually, Ms. Bragg would journey to Tuskegee to attend the Civilian Pilot Training Program flight school. While there, she was not awarded her commercial licence to fly. Not to be deterred, Ms. Bragg went to Chicago where she passed the exam and earned the first commercial pilots licence ever issued to a black woman.

Today I am going to present to you with two black history facts. Before he was a block buster actor, Will Smith was The Fresh Prince and along with partner Jazzy Jeff, won the first-ever Grammy for Best rap performance. They boycotted the awards because the category was banned from television.  The still reigning King of Pop, Michael Jackson, snagged Guinness World records, including highest annual earnings for a pop star, best selling album of all time for his classic, Thriller, and most Grammy Awards won in a year. Michael Jackson took home 8. Incidentally Beyonce hold that record for the ladies. She took home six in 2010.

He is a former American Football offensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys and a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Wright played on 5 Cowboys teams that made it to the Superbowl in 1970, 1971, 1975, 1977, and 1978, respectively. The Cowboys won 2 of those Superbowls while losing 3. Mr. Wright also participated in the Ice Bowl against Green Bay Packers for the 1967 NFL championship in his rookie season.

Today I am going to present you with a little known Black History Fact.  Tice Davids, a runaway slave from Kentucky, was the inspiration for the first usage of the term “Underground Railroad.”  Davids’ owner assumed the slave had drowned when he attempted his swim across the Ohio River.  He told the local paper that if Davids had escaped, he must have traveled on “an underground railroad.”  Davids, however, did live, giving the Underground Railroad its now-famous name.

Good morning GHS. I am Geranger Lewis. I am going to present you with a little known Black History Fact. Azie Taylor Morton is distinguished as the only African-American ever to hold the post of Treasurer of the United States. She was appointed by President Jimmy Carter on September 12, 1977. She served as the 36th Treasurer of the United States until January 20, 1981. Along with the Secretary of the Treasury, the Treasurer must sign Federal Reserve notes before they can become legal tender, thus, Morton’s signature was on U.S. currency for three years.

Good morning GHS. I am Justina Russell, Advisor of GHS Bogarsettes and Co-Sponsor of the GHS Bogarsuns. Today, I am going to present you with the Black History Fact about one of the greatest doctors to have ever lived.  When neurosurgeon Ben Carson was a child, his mother required him to read two library books a week and give her written reports, even though she was barely literate. She would then take the papers and pretend to carefully review them, placing a checkmark at the top of the page showing her approval. The assignments gave Carson his eventual love of reading and learning. Dr. Ben Carson is known for his successful separation of conjoined twins in 1987. In 2015, Dr. Carson announced his intentions to run for President of the United States as a Republican.

Book Bowl will meet Friday after school in room 212.

A big congratulations goes out to our Wrestling Bears.  Two of our bears qualified for sectionals.  Cameron Hope stays undefeated as he finishes as the araa champion.  George Laster finished 3rd in the area as he qualified for sectionals as well.
