Throughout February, we'll introduce you to Black students and staff who are writing history every day. We'll also give you a front row seat to a few of the events, celebrations and activities that will be occurring at schools across our district. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see these amazing stories of Black Excellence in our district.

First up, meet three standout La Follette High School students:

Senior Krystyn Jones' experience having spina bifida and scoliosis inspired her create a musical and speaking tour called Create a Smile. She's touring the Midwest, visiting children's hospitals across several states. Check out her story.

Ryan Jackson, also a senior, not only keeps up an impressive GPA but is heavily involved in extracurricular activities. Teachers describe him as "a dedicated student" who is "extremely thoughtful and gracious." Read about Ryan here.

Lancer freshman Lilyana Sims has performed her original, award-winning spoken word speech, "Don't Touch My Hair," at the Overture Center and at UW-Madison, in Washington D.C. in front of the White House and at the Kennedy Center, at an NAACP Freedom Fund banquet, and in a La Follette High School staff workshop. Now in her second year of writing and performing, she's working on a new speech that she's hoping will rival the success of her first. Listen to her podcast episode here.

The hub for all of our Black History Month stories is our new website, mmsd.org/stories. We've got lots more stories about history makers from all of our high schools and more on the way.
