George Washington Carver High School will celebrate its academic history during its inaugural Academic Hall of Fame Banquet on Saturday, March 21. Fifteen alumnae of Carver Nation and staff members of Carver High School will be inducted into the 2020 Academic Hall of Fame at the Salem Lake Marina. Entertainment will be provided by Case Closed Band. The committee chairperson of the Hall of Fame is DeWayne Tillman, assisted by Tonya Withers, director of student services. Tillman is proud to be a part of this esteemed celebration.

 “Carver High School has historically had an outstanding reputation for producing community leaders. Although this school has won many athletic accolades, Carver Nation has a fine slate of alumnae to be proud of,” said Tillman, also an administrator at Carver.

Withers was quite impressed with the caliber of alumnae who have been nominated for the first induction ceremony. “We have students who have become entrepreneurs, some who have become champions in the medical field, others in the area of higher education, arts and entertainment, and some have distinguished themselves in their retirement years,” said Withers.

“We want to show that Carver High School not only succeeded at athletics, we have a proven track record that Yellowjackets are making a big impact in our communities and in other parts of the country,” said Dr. Montague-Davis, principal.
