Dr. Dorothy I. Height, the Godmother of the Civil Rights Era, so named by President Barack Obama, was celebrated at the Rankin Promise Program on March 23, 2016. This event, the first of it's kind in our District, was held in honor of Dr. Height, who graduated from Rankin High School, class of 1929. The well attended school district and community event celebrated in song, dance, and spoken word...a fitting tribute to our national treasure!
