NAACP Support for Students of Bell Middle School

Dear Community Members,

We are writing today to affirm the NAACP San Diego Branch’s commitment to the students of Bell Middle School, and to assure the Community that those students will continue to receive all the programs (and more) to which they have become accustomed in the last few years.

We are very well aware that some persons have made public certain controversies regarding the administration and funding of the programs the NAACP has been conducting with Bell.  The fact that there have been controversies is certainly true.

However, the NAACP San Diego Branch has never allowed, and will never allow these controversies to in any way diminish the experience of the students at Bell Middle School.  Even when other parties have “canceled” events with less than 24 hours’ notice, the Branch and Bell staff have worked together to make the events happen on schedule.

Now that these controversies have finally been definitively resolved, the students at Bell can in fact look forward to smoother, more consistent and richer experience than ever before.

Please note that this letter is addressed to you, the Community, and not to the staff or students of Bell Middle School.  That is because the staff and students of Bell Middle School are already fully confident in our commitment, and are looking forward with enthusiasm to better NAACP support of their success than ever before.

Thank you for your attention,

Clovis Honoré
President, NAACP San Diego Branch
