As part of Black History Month Ravenna High School was treated to an amazing virtual assembly hosted by Terrence Talley.  Terrence spoke to students about adversity and never giving up.  His message was powerful and resonated with our students. Some comments from the students after the virtual assembly were very positive.Terr
