It's that time again! Time for yet another #NCFFriday and today @socialworks_chi is highlighting the remarkable, Mahalia Jackson Elementary School!
With the support from the New Chance Fund grant, Mahalia Jackson was able to upgrade their auditorium! A series of modernizations were made, from new curtains to new sound systems and podiums. With the new installations, the auditorium has become a hub for performance arts for all 360 students and the community. In October 2018, the school hosted the Gospel Museum which celebrated the life and contributions made by Gospel Artists, featuring Mahalia Jackson.
As an additional benefit, for the first time in 20 years, the newly renovated auditorium at the Mahalia Jackson Elementary school was able to host ALL of the student graduations! Wow!
