Griffin presents book to LRC’s Cooper

Halifax Community College President, Dr. Ervin V. Griffin, Sr. presented Learning Resources Center (LRC) Director Mary Gail Cooper with a copy of “Alliance Against the Odds: The Manual Training High School Story” on Sept. 2. The book’s author, Dr. Charles T. Ledbetter, a former colleague of Griffin’s, sent the book-set to him recently.

 

“Alliance Against the Odds: The Manual Training High School Story” is the product of Ledbetter’s experience as an education professor and years of research. The book-set shares practical and scholarly perspectives of an African-American community and its education system. “Each approach attempts to use a unique perspective, or lens, to help bring the positive legacy of an African American community and its educational system into sharper focus,” wrote Ledbetter.

 

If local authors would like to present a copy of their original work, the LRC will accept donated copies. Contact Mary Gail Cooper at 536-7237 for details.
