The more than 500 Airmen, civilians and family members who took in the festivities at the fitness center Aug. 28 soaked up much more than entertainment.
Master Sgt. Ellis Jennings, chairman of the 2009 Schriever Air Force Base Diversity Day, said the intent of the festival was to provide “edu-tainment,” a combination of education and entertainment.
Diversity Day was designed to recognize a multitude of ethnic and cultural groups in one day, creating a large observance and celebration, as opposed to many smaller observances.
Diversity Day attendees were exposed to a wide variety of cultures, through food, literature, educational lectures, music and dancing.
