About
 

OUR MISSION

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.

We Are Alumni and Friends of the George Washington Carver Regional High School

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 of educational programming for the Carver 4-County Museum.

Banquet group photo-2019.jpg

     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 rejoiced together at our old school campus for a HOMECOMING CELEBRATION on August 28th, 2021.  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?
