HOUSTON- The George Washington Carver School Alumni of Aldine ISD welcomed over 120 students from the History Classes at Carver Magnet School. As students toured the Carver Heritage Room, they learned more of the History of George Washington Carver High School and the Acres Home Community.
On hand to share many experiences from the past were: Mrs. Oveta Hunter (class of 1943), Mrs. Alpha Gamble (class of 1948), Mr. Charles Hobley (class of 1958), Mr. Dalton Roberts (class of 1958), Ms. Joan Truitt Massey (class of 1962) and Mr. Robert Flake, Jr. (class of 1964) to name a few.
All these presenters had very interesting stories to tell of the days Carver was known for its Literary and Drama Awards to the days of sports when Carver went to the State Finals in Basketball in 1958.
The Class of 1967, who are the “Gatekeepers” for the Carver Heritage Room was there to express the importance of preserving our History and Leaving a Legacy here at Carver for all to see. They were, Junell Cain, Gloria Collins, Herbert Darby, Mitchel Gaines, Guy Johnson, Albert Newsome and Charles Wright.
The Heritage Room is open every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 11a.m. – 2p.m. and every 3rd Thursday of each month from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. during the School Year.
