Springfield Urban League, Inc. "Doing the Right Thing" Celebration

November 16, 2009

On September 19, 2009 Springfield Public Schools participated in the Springfield League's event to honor youth, parents and caretakers who are doing the right thing. This event was part of the National Urban League’s “Achievement Matters" Campaign designed to negate the anti-achievement messages in low-income communities across the nation.
The Springfield League event is a (non-violent, drug/alcohol free) Community Festival and was held from noon to 4 p.m. beside the SUL office located at 100 North 11th St. (11th & Washington). The Springfield Public Schools provided a free book for each child and family-related information.
