The George Washington Carver Regional High School Alumni Association will mark the 50th anniversary of the school’s closing at its annual reunion banquet and meeting this Saturday, Nov. 24, at 6 p.m. at The Pavilion on Lakeland Farm in Orange County.
“Orange is one of the counties from which Carver’s students traveled to get their high school education,” explains Linda G. Washington, coordinator for the event. “In fact, most of the 69 students in the first graduating class of 1949 came from Orange, so it is fitting that we should locate this special celebration here.”
“There is much to be thankful for this year,” she continues. “Our invigorated organization has contributed to the beauty of our old school by adding a brick walkway, and in cooperation with Culpeper County we’ve developed a new museum that promises to be a central location for culture and education throughout the region.”
