Robert E. Hunt Junior High School student handbook donated

A 1974-75 student handbook from Robert E. Hunt Junior High School was recently donated to the Billups-Garth Archives at the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library (accession #2012-15). 

R. E. Hunt High School, named for long time educator Dr. Robert E. Hunt (1898-1978), was built in 1954 as an African American school. It was consolidated with Stephen D. Lee High School in 1971 following intergration. Through the years, the school transitioned operationally from a high school, junior high, elementary, and intermediate school until it closed in 2011.

Below are images from the student handbook including a list of the faculty and staff at the school for the 1974-75 academic year.
