In its second year at FHS, Promotion of Black Students adopted as its year-long project fundraising for the fight against sickle cell anemia. Sponsored by Mrs. Betty Smith, history teacher, the group also sought money for a scholarship for a senior.

Social functions included a dance and fashion show with clothes provided by participating merchants. Proceeds from a soul food dinner went to the sickle cell anemia drive. Prior to Easter, the club took day-care children on an egg hunt.

“I like being in PBS,” said Jo Ann Lackey, “because it helps other people out and it makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something.”
