About the Alumni Center

Question: Why was the Alumni Center built?

Answer:

  1. GOAL: To preserve history and to honor Graduates, Educators, Administrators and Friends of Asheville City Schools since 1887.
  2. RETRIEVE - To gather artifacts, pictures, records, and memorabilia available from Asheville City Schools (both former and present schools) since 1887.
  3. INVENTORY - Inventory artifacts, categorize and repair, if needed, and store in one secured storage area known as the Archive Room.
  4. DISPLAY - Organize information and prepare permanent and rotating displays representing Asheville City Schools (before, during, and after integration), focusing primarily o­n the high schools: Asheville High, Catholic Hill School, Lee H. Edwards High, South French Broad High and Stephens-Lee High. (Although Stephens-Lee has its own alumni center, the director will act as a consultant and that school will be represented along with the other high schools in this facility.) Information o­n Asheville City Schools of the past will also be collected.
