Stereotypes

Howdy 3 West, 

It was great to attend the Stereotypes program for Diversity week. We learned a lot about the unfounded assumptions we had heard and learned.  Feel free to talk to ether us about our experience at this program or learn more with the resources listed below. By understanding where the biases we have against each other come from and their falsities we can work to build a more inclusive community.  We are challenging you to do your part to build a more accepting 3 West community.

Emily Hefty and Jesse Peterson’s Senior Recitals

On Sunday, May 7th

I went to 2 different Senior recitals with Justin.  Justin still needed to finish up a few concerts for his Music Appreciation class and I knew of 2 very good ones that were going on this weekend.  Emily is a violin and flute player and was accompanied by her Flute professor and a piano.  Jesse is a percussionist and played on the Marimba and several other percussion instruments.  Both of the musicians did a very good job with their own pieces, playing very difficult music in their own fields.
