The Holland Sentinel

Joe Gonzalez, a Zeeland junior, explains the role of Zeeland’s Calling All Colors group to the Zeeland Board of Education on April 21. Fellow students at the podium, from left, are junior Felicia Sluiter, junior Dyanna Solis, sophomore Martin Perez, junior Sandy Patel, and sophomore Mario Navarrete.

The group explained the role of the new Calling All Colors organization to the board which is to increase awareness of cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds. The group has 25 members and recently took part in the first Calling All Colors racial unity conference for high school students at Grand Valley State University. The students will help supervise a middle school Calling All Colors conference in May at GVSU.
