Our Mitchell Mustangs and their teachers were humbled to have had the opportunity to hear a presentation given by Dr. Virgil Wood and his lovely wife, Lillian on Wednesday, January 24. Dr. Wood is a prominent civil rights activist that worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his wife Coretta Scott King, and Rosa Parks, just to name a few. Dr. Wood shared his experiences during the Civil Rights era, answered questions, and encouraged our students to be all they were created to be and to recognize the value of all human beings.
