Class of 2021 donates prom money to social justice causes
Rising seniors voted to split the money they raised for prom to the Nashville chapter of Black Lives Matter and the Equal Justice Initiative.
Last November the Class of 2021 held a silent auction as a fundraiser for prom 2020, which was canceled due to COVID-19. In June, the class decided to redirect their funds to a charity.
"Given the recent events and conversations around our city and country, our class will be donating the money we raised to support the Black Lives Matter movement," they wrote their benefactors. The $2,000 was split equally between the Nashville chapter of Black Lives Matter and the Equal Justice Initiative.
Although some of our hallmark events will not take place this fall, USNA will continue to work to support the school and still needs parent volunteers. Read on for updates on parent socials, Artclectic, and two monthly USNA meetings to be more accessible to working parents.
