Antigone Rising Band Assembly

Antigone Rising Assembly at North Shore Middle School
Empowering girls and women, boys and men, to be an ally to stand up for positive social change

In March at North Shore Middle School, an assembly for all eighth graders focused on the importance of empowering girls and women, boys and men, to be an ally to stand up for positive social change.  The band Antigone Rising, through their music and experiences, led conversations about breaking stereotypes and social norms, and helping one another be an advocate and ally. We welcomed panelist Sue Wicks, WNBA HOF. Sue brought her unique perspective as a young athlete aspiring to be better, get to the next step and achieve her goal of playing in the WNBA.

For the first time, Antigone Rising welcomed a male moderator to the stage. Thank you to our very own Mr. Chris Gill for breaking the boundaries by bringing his passion, energy and experiences to help foster positive change for our students.
