Students at Quality Education Academy (QEA) took a break from their normal classroom routine last Friday to celebrate their heritage during the 15th annual Culture Day Celebration.

According to school officials, “Culture Day” has been a tradition at QEA since the doors opened in 2001 to raise student moral during the school year. Fifteen years later, and now complete with its very own parade that shut down Lansing Drive, the event has grown to become one of the most anticipated events of the year.

This year the event included performances by the band, chorus, school choir and a number of talented students.

The Walkertown High School Marching Band also participated in this year’s celebration. Dozens of parents attended the event as well.

On QEA’s Facebook page, various pieces of culture have emerged.

“Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand. – Native American Saying” comes from one entry.

“Milk and honey have different colors, but they share the same house peacefully. –African proverb” comes from another entry.
