South Jersey Civil Rights Icon
Soror Dr. Juanita High is featured as one of three Civil Rights icons in Atlantic City, New Jersey, July 2020 in The Press of Atlantic City.
Dr. High was a teacher in Atlantic City when Fannie Lou Hamer made her famous remarks during the 1964 Democratic National Convention at Boardwalk Hall. Her comments about that event were covered in The Press of Atlantic City November 2, 2018.
Soror Hollisha Bridgers
Galloway Middle School Vice Principal
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Soror Hollisha in her new office at Galloway Middle School. It was reported in the September newsletter that Hollisha had accepted the Assistant Principal position there and I wanted to congratulate her personally and wish her the best.
I was expecting to see her at her desk, sifting through piles of papers and manuals, slightly edgy, possibly wired. However, she was in great spirits, dressed in her Eagles sweatshirt and winding down from the fourth day of Spirit Week (October 5-9, 2020), which she coordinated.
During our brief chat, Hollisha commented that it has been a markedly unusual first couple of weeks of school for students and staff adjusting to the new CoVid guidelines and precautions. But it has given her time to ease into her position and prepare for an unprecedented school year.
We have complete confidence in her and know she will have a very successful year. Be Safe!
