Black & Brown Girls Wellness Day

Did you know that Pima County has declared May 17, 2024 as the first "Black and Brown Girls Wellness Day" as the result of a collaboration started here at Tucson Unified? 

Middle school girls from Utterback, Roberts-Naylor and Secrist participated in the inaugural Black and Brown Girls Wellness Day. The girls heard from guest speakers, received gift bags and attended workshops on Identity, Neuropathic Art, Healthy Relationships and Belonging. 

They heard from the first African American valedictorian from Tucson High, Khyra Superville, who spoke about self-care and the 'power of the color of Black to absorb' challenges. "Radiance comes from self-love and self-acceptance", Dr. Flori Huitt said.

"Taking Good Care of ME & My Community" was sponsored by Tucson Unified's African American Student Services, Asian Pacific American & Refugee Student Services, Native American Student Services and Mexican American Student Services departments.
