Her thoughts — The importance of donorship

Published 12:00 pm Wednesday, November 23, 2022

The members of The Central High Museum board thank the generous donors who have generously continued to support us with their donations of artifacts such as yearbooks, class photographs and other memorabilia that celebrates, explains and preserve the legacy of The Central High Museum.

The mission is still the same, which is to collect, preserve and present the story of The Central High experience by having a diverse collection that tells about the lives, contributions and successes of its alumni. We could not do this without your support so please consider donating these items: 1947-1949; 1950-1959 yearbooks, 1947-1959 class photographs (we don’t have these so we really need them) as well as information on the Byrdtown Cemetery and the citizens that are buried there to add to this vast collection.

As I have mentioned in a previous column, the museum is embarking on a cemetery preservation project regarding African American slaves and free blacks. In addition, we hope to connect more with donors and supporters as well as the public at large through social media in the near future and as we journey to make these endeavors happen we plan to keep you updated and solicit your help.

Again, The Central High Museum, Inc. board members are humbled and gratified by your support. We thank God for our success and that started with you.
