Museum at George Washington Carver

During a meeting of the county’s buildings and grounds committee Tuesday morning, members approved the go ahead for plans by the George Washington Carver Alumni Association to create a museum within the building that once occupied George Washington Carver High School. Their consensus will carry the proposal to the full board for their approval in May. Charles Jameson, who currently serves as chairman for the group, gave a brief presentation on the need to preserve and remember the contributions of African-Americans particularly as it relates to the school and George Washington Carver. Jameson said that they envision artwork on the walls and are in the process of gathering artifacts but were most concerned at this point about getting permission to use the space. Supervisors Gary Deal, Jack Frazier and Steve Walker, who sit on that committee, were very supportive of the idea and see it fitting within the space which is in the process of renovation. Walker suggested that they consider a plaque or memorial of some kind outside the building as well.
