Collegiate Academy's cafeteria set the stage for a multi-cultural event this evening.
It was the culmination of the face to Facebook program.

The cooperative effort between Collegiate Academy and McKinley Elementary students is designed as a mentoring program.
The elementary students are refugees and immigrants from other countries who are paired up with a high school student.
Together they write a book which helps to teach English and American culture.

Families of the students and faculty held a pot luck dinner and listened to the musical stylings of the Glenwood Hillbillies.
