On Thursday, Nov. 18 members of The Legacy Education Center visited The Central High Museum. The organization, based in Lynchburg, is in partnership with Bluefield University and Central Virginia Community College. Its members Reverend Shirley Hunter Conner and Randy Dutton, executive director along with Charlotte County Board of Supervisors member Donna Fore and museum president Dr. Hezteine Foster toured the various galleries of the museum. Several museum members Judy Moore, George Smith and Thelma Jones were on hand to lead the tour. Rev. Conner and Dutton were highly impressed with the extensive collection as well as The Central High Museum’s mission of preserving and telling about the contributions of African Americans in Charlotte County and beyond and all that has been accomplished over the past 20 years.

The Legacy Project collaborates with the Adult and Career Education of Central VA offering pathways to obtaining a GED. The general education development program involves diagnostic testing, individual learning, blended instruction, practice testing and structural tutorial services. In addition, a person can achieve a life skills education along with accredited academics. Furthermore, the program seeks to recruit individuals to attend community college which can give them a basis for potential business and employment opportunities.

With the joint partnership between The Central High Museum and The Legacy Education Center, we as a community can achieve opportunities for advancement. The spring 2022 semester for the program begins January 12, 2022. Contact Rev. Conner at (434) 229-1275 or email her at as well as Dutton at (434) 841-9999.
