Diamond Dynasty finds way to give back


staff report

The Ben Davis Diamond Dynasty dance team was not able to complete community service due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, that did not stop their desire to serve.

 The coaching staff, Shayla Hampton and Kiara Malone, decided to think outside of the box and were able to develop an initiative that not only served, but honored and supported others. The initiative set out to show appreciation and recognition for the many Black women leaders in Wayne Township.

 After doing research and locating all of the amazing women, the coaches visited every one of them, and presented them with a gift of gratitude. The gift included a thank you card, a custom diamond pen, assorted candies, a Starbucks cake pop, and for the women in administrative roles, a Starbucks gift card.

 Dr. Shenia Suggs- Asst. Superintendent for Human Resources

 Dr. Denita Harris-Curriculum Coordinator

 Dr. Dennisha Murff-Principal

 Kris Walker-Guess-District Transition Coordinator
