The recent dedication ceremony for the new Julian mosaic mural was absolutely fabulous, a wonderful project for students and local artists to work on, which has resulted in a true masterpiece. 

The Julian Spoken Word students gave an amazing poetic performance to honor Dr. Julian's legacy. And what an inspiration it was to hear from Faith Julian, who fully displayed the passionate spirit of her father, who persisted in seizing the opportunities to achieve great works and make the world a better place. Dr. Julian was a pioneer in the truest sense of the word in his work as a scientist and in courageously promoting racial progress. His spirit truly lives on in our community, as was evident at the ceremony. 

I'm glad I had the opportunity to contribute to this project and offer tribute to the enormously positive impact my time at Julian has had on my life, while giving current students something worthwhile to do, as part of a larger effort to honor Dr. Julian. It was a great day to be part of the Julian community. And I'm very proud to be an alumnus, class of 2005.
