UCPS principals visit Africa
Three UCPS principals visited Africa recently, part of a 34-member educator group from World View.
The group visited Senegal to understand Sengalese educational system and the influence of Islam on Senegalese culture. They visited mosques and area villages, as well as several public and private schools, from elementary to college.
Principals Mike Henderson (Shiloh Elementary), Anne Radke (Piedmont Middle School) and Montrio Belton (Monroe Middle School) took time for a photo opportunity while visiting Senegal, outside of a mosque in Dakar, and near local fishing boats.
The three also visited a mosque in the holy city of Touba, about two hours from Dakar.
