After reaching her monumental goal of $14,000, the Diversity and Unity shirt has arrived, and will be available for pick-up next week!

“My name is Acacia Tripplett and I am DHS’s Diversity Ambassador.

Like many of you may feel, this year has been crazy! I have felt the pressures over all the events that have happened this year. Over the past months, I have designed a t-shirt that would help connect Dublin. This t-shirt is a way to unify Our community, Our School, Our city, ‘Our Dublin.’ Over $14,000 have been raised to give every student, teacher and staff member this t-shirt at no cost. All 3700 shirts have arrived and will be passed out next week!
