‘Building Bridges in a Diverse Society’ Workshop Seeks Students

Rockville, Maryland, April 2 – “Building Bridges in a Diverse Society,” a dynamic, highly interactive diversity leadership workshop offered by the city’s Human Rights Commission, returns in April.


The free workshop, co-sponsored by the Montgomery College-Rockville Student Life Office, is for students living in or attending high school in Rockville, or attending Montgomery College-Rockville. It will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, April 21 in Room 152 of the Science Center at Montgomery College-Rockville, 51 Mannakee St.
