Merri Dee Book Signing


Deborah Powell

Central students planned and coordinated with the Black History Month committee to invite journalist Merri Dee to speak at the school on Feb. 25.

Merri Dee, a former journalist who worked at WGN Chicago for 38 years, visited Central on Feb. 25 and shared her story of tragedy and triumph with students, faculty and administrators. She also took time to do a book signing event in the cafeteria for her new book, Life Lessons on Faith, Forgiveness & Grace.

Dee’s visit was part of a month long series of events to celebrate Black History Month.
