Diversity Day 2023

NVOT celebrates annual Diversity Day

On Friday, June 2, Diversity Club held their annual Diversity Day. This year the Diversity Club beat their record with 34 different booths— including 33 different countries and the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) booth. This year, the day included Tae Kwon Do, Italian Trumpet, song, and poetry performances.

Diversity Day, run by the Diversity Club with advisor Hollie Wiesenburg, is a day in which students are able to experience new cultures through visual art, performances, and food. When students sign up, they choose to represent a country and create a booth to inform people about their heritage.

Sophomore Jamie Kim said that she loved “watching the performances and seeing the different countries” while she ran a booth. Diversity Day was a great way to have all the students together to learn and engage in different cultures.
