Once A Booker, Always A Booker…

NORFOLK

Two power-packed and enthusiastic events on Feb. 23 celebrated the 102 years that Booker T. Washington High School has educated young people in Norfolk. That morning, a mock highway marker designating the school’s history was unveiled in the school auditorium after rain eliminated an outdoors ceremony.  That evening at the Half Moone Nauticus, a reception was held, complete with a brief program, fellowship, food and dancing. The day was planned and hosted by the Concerned Citizens of BTW, the BTW/PTA, and the BTW Foundation. Special thanks went to Councilwoman Mamie Johnson for her support in facilitating the city’s support and participation in the events.
