Thomas Jefferson’s Black Student Union
BSU started out in the school year 2010-2011, but was not sustained due to a lack of direction and student participation. BSU was re-constituted in school year 2011-2012 with new faculty advisers and a broader vision. These new advisers wanted to inspire all students of color to become active contributing members of their school climate — to dare to achieve and not just sit idly by and let another school year pass without making a positive impact on campus.
Our very first meeting was held on 9-08-11 with 33 students in attendance. These students talked about their expectations for this club and some issues they wanted to see addressed. It was very enlightening. We talked about some community service projects that could be undertaken as a group. They also wanted to bring back their “Step Team” (dance team). But, our most pressing issue was funding. As a new club, there were no funds in our club account. We came up with a great fundraiser that helped to fund most of our activities.
