Simmons BSO kicks off Black History Month

The Simmons Black Student Organization faired the storm Tuesday to celebrate the beginning of Black History Month. All were welcome to participate in the cake cutting ceremony, and those lucky enough to be passing by received a free piece! The girls were joined by President Helen Drinan and School of Social Work Associate Professor Gary Bailey. If you're interested in celebrating Black History Month, the BSO has planned plenty events this month for you to take part in.
