JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) -- The Johnson City School District held its annual “Culture Night” this evening at their school cafeteria to celebrate the school’s multi-cultural student diversity.

Many families from the school district and the community came to check out dozens of booths that were set up throughout the gymnasium, each one representing different nations and their cultures.

Some of the countries highlighted this evening included China, Pakistan, Jordan and many more.

12 News spoke with Assistant Superintendent Joe Guccia about the event and the importance of recognizing our community’s diversity.

“Diversity in Johnson City schools is our strength,” said Guccia. “We love to celebrate the cultures that represent our school population and our community and that is a great chance for all of us to come together to learn more about where our students and families come from and to celebrate our diversity.”

Culture Night is hosted each year by the district’s English as a New Language, or ENL, department.
