Last year, Shifon Berumen started a club at Chino High School called Black Student Union (BSU) African American students to support and embrace their cultural heritage. Berumen also wanted to discuss the racial issues happening in our society right now.

Berumen felt that as one of the few African Americans staff members on campus, she should do her part to be a positive role model resource for African American students as there are only 70 black students in the Chino High campus.

She started BSU which has a mission to, “promote a positive and productive representation of the African American community on and off the Chino High School campus.”

This club meets every Thursday at lunch in room 77, and it has a webpage is on the CHS homepage where students can get more information if they have any questions. Students can also join her Remind app to keep in touch, which is also located on the CHS homepage.

“I have Berumen for 5th and she brought me to the side and asked me personally if I wanted to join because I am black too. I said yes and she gave me an invitation and I started going every Thursday,” said Saira Kahn who goes to every meeting.

Berumen plans to have a few field trips in the future, including attending the Black College Expo located downtown L.A. Another field trip is in the works for black history month where club members will go to a local community museum of black heritage in Pomona.
