Celebrating, preserving local African American History

Posted on Wednesday, May 8, 2024 at 7:55 am

A Gala was hosted at The Fly Arts Center Saturday night celebrating the May 23, 1966, graduates from the Bedford County Training School. They were the last all-African American class to graduate before Bedford County was desegregated in 1967. Funding received from this event provided scholarships to benefit the “Senior Class of 2024.”
