Chantilly High School is celebrating Black History Month with daily trivia for students, a speaker series, and a dance. Nate Barfield, president of FedQuest Solutions, a financial management firm, kicked off the month speaking to students about his experiences as a self-starter, owner, and chief operating officer.  Also planned for the month is a stepping demonstration from a local fraternity and sorority, when students will have the opportunity to gain insight about college life, the importance of service, and scholarship in the African American community.  Later in the month, students will get to see a performance by a local African American dance troupe and hear from speaker Reggie Copeland, a member of the Marietta (Ga.) City Council.  Contact news liaison Bonnie Wannett at bjwannett@fcps.edu
