On Friday, July 24th, NEXT High School will facilitate OneCity, a free event that will bring to light the need for celebrating cultural and ethnic diversity in our growing community.  Accomplishing this necessitates the discussion of barriers and issues that prevent Greenville from celebrating together - appreciating all citizens.

Our event features a panel discussion and community Q&A with a sampling of Greenville’s leading thinkers and innovators.  The day culminates with a true celebration - live music, dance, food, poetry, and community.  The discussion, points of action, perspective, and momentum from this event will be used as school initiative and project for our students to engage during the 2015-16 school year.
