JOIN US FOR AN INCREDIBLE CELEBRATION OF 100 YEARS!
Alumni, Legacies, Friends, Partners, and Community, come celebrate with us the 100th Anniversary of Second Ward High School, the first high school for Black students living in the City of Charlotte.
The Second Ward High School National Alumni Foundation Board of Directors and I hope that you will make time to join us and attend the Centennial Awards Banquet and many planned Reunion events.
In 1980, we celebrated our first national reunion in the Brooklyn community. And yes, we are coming back home this year. The Centennial Awards Banquet and Reunion headquarters will be held at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel (formerly the Adams Mark Hotel).
