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.
Your yearly dues of $15 help us to fulfill our mission in two ways:
awarding scholarships to deserving students, and the development
and educational programming of the Carver 4-County Museum.
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.
So many of us that we could not all fit on this page . . .
November, 2018, we celebrated our 25th year with a banquet at The Pavilion at Lakeland Farm in Orange, Virginia. To attend our 2019 Annual Reunion Banquet, click here.
