We Are Alumni and Friends of the George Washington Carver Regional High School
Rev. Frank D. Lewis, Chair
GWCRHSAA, Inc. Board of Directors
In the period of separate-but-equal, African American parents successfully organized and advocated for many years for a high school for their children. Beginning in October 1948, those students would finally travel from the counties of Orange, Madison and Rappahannock to attend the newly constructed school in Culpeper County, Virginia. Today's membership are the descendants of those dedicated parents, grandparents and community supporters.
Governed by a Board of Directors, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit
corporation. We are sustained largely by donations and membership
dues, and we have one mission.
Effective January 1, 2020, yearly dues are $25. They are used to
help us fulfill our mission in two ways: awarding scholarships to
deserving students, and the development and educational
programming of the Carver 4-County Museum.
Our first newsletter of 2020 is 6 pages and may be downloaded
To document, celebrate and share the educational, social, cultural and military history of students, faculty and administrators of George Washington Carver Regional High School, the only institution of higher education in the four-county region of Culpeper, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock from 1948-68.

November, 2019, we celebrated our annual banquet at The Pavilion at Lakeland Farm in Orange, Virginia. Adhering to COVID-19 precautions, we chose to postpone our festivities in 2020.
Again this year, we will forego our banquet. Instead, we will rejoice together at our old school campus for a HOMECOMING CELEBRATION on August 28th. For more information, click here.
It has been too long since we've seen one another. With COVID still moving through the states, it is difficult to travel as freely as we may like.
Technology has given us new ways to communicate. It would be joyous to see you and to hear your laughter. How about it?
