Sarah Hart Weston and Fatimah Shabazz have organized a meeting in Asheville at Stephens-Lee Alumni Center. The meeting takes place on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.
The committee is planning for an exhibit at the Rural Life Museum. Objects are needed for this exhibit. Please bring photos, books, and other materials related to the historic school.
Volunteers are needed to compile the history of the school from 1930 to the 1960s. We need the names of teachers and students, and the dates they attended the school.
Further research on the families living in the community is needed. Alumni are asked to write brief family histories.
Fundraising for the restoration of the school will also be discussed. All alumni and supporters of the school are invited to attend. The Stephens-Lee Center is located at 30 George Washington Carver Ave., Asheville, NC 28801. Phone number is 828-350-2058.
