On Saturday, September 21, 2019, the African American Ladies Empowered to Grow Opportunities (A-LEGO) hosted their 3rd Annual Black Educators’ Ball at the Zoofari Conference Center, 9715 W. Bluemound Rd.

The event honors local African American teachers who were nominated by their community for A-LEGO’s Outstanding Educator Awards. The educators honored are those who go above and beyond for their students and to show that representation in the classroom is important for their students.
