Regarding: “THE VISION” Community Statue Project, groundbreaking ceremony of historical statue of Booker T. Washington
In an effort, to help memorialize our rich history, the students at Booker T. Washington High School have initiated “THE VISION” Community Statue Project. This project includes the erection of a statue of Booker T. Washington, a Community Plaza, Community Park, and a GeoDome Greenhouse.
THE VISION will provide an additional source for food in the community, a safe serene place for families to visit, a safe environment to exercise and a memorial for one of the greatest educators in African American history. Under the direction of Dr. Carlos Phillips, II, the Principal of Washington High School, a team of students and teachers have been assembled to help bring “THE VISION” Community Statue Project to fruition.
THE VISION Community Statue Project consists of innovative STEM/STEAM designs and art implementation that outline; the statue plaza, community garden, geodome, lighting for our school track and a wind farm, that will provide alternative energy to the correlating components of the project. This historical landmark will be the fifth statue of an African American in Houston. The proposed sculpture encompasses true STEAM elements, and has been designed by local sculptor, Bridgette Mongeon. Additionally, at this event, patrons and supporters will join alumni and community leaders as the school auditorium is dedicated to State Representative and Alumna, The Honorable Senfronia Thompson. “THE VISION” Community Statue Project is building momentum and will have a great impact on our community.
