JCPS students and staff happy with the return of the culture fair

Through food, music, flags and clothing, students and their families built displays to help teach others about their culture.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Students and staff at Iroquois High School were excited to have their annual cultural fair return after a two-year hiatus.

The high school cultural fair is an opportunity for students to show off what makes their home country so special.

Through food, music, flags and clothing, students and their families built displays to help teach others about their culture.

Staff said one of their favorite parts of the event was seeing families come together and bring artifacts and special touches from their homes.

“A lot of families came to drop off artifacts, rugs, jewelry, so it was really amazing to see how supportive our family was and mixed us together to showcase some of the brilliant refugees and immigrants we have in community,” said Fadhia Mohamud, one of the staff at Iroquois High School.

A student from Iroquois High School, Tyjianna Mansfield, said the day was fun and interesting.

“I feel like it was really cool that the school did all of that and then included everyone in the school. In different cultures. Got us out of class. It’s really cool to see all cultures,” Mansfield said.
