Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity also spoke encouraging words to the students. The activity was part of ROCK Kindness Week. Students at Bellingrath were engaged in activities all week long that promoted respect for themselves and others.

Dr. Boyd encouraged students to respect themselves. “You need to know what is right and what is wrong and that you have great potential. Believe in yourself first” said Boyd as she shared her story of success.
