I Love Charity Middle School! Honoring Our Heritage
This petition had 415 supporters
In April of 2014, Duplin County Board of Education decided to close three historically black middle schools, one of which was our beloved Charity Middle School (CMS), home of the Yellow Jackets. Built in 1951, Charity High School was erected as the black high school for the communities of Rose Hill, Wallace, Teachey, Greenevers, Chinquapin, and Beulaville. It was named for the surrounding community of Charity. In 1969, Charity High School was integrated with Wallace-Rose Hill High School, and Charity became the junior high for the communities of Rose Hill, Wallace, Teachey, and Greenevers. In 1975, ninth grade moved to Wallace-Rose Hill High School and Charity became a middle school for 7th and 8th grade. We, the African American CMS graduates and attendees, are petitioning to keep CMS a historically black site for our community. If the sale of CMS is made public, it will increase the risk of losing our plight to honor our heritage. If the petition is granted, we can ban together as a people to renovate CMS to be a community center, museum, charter school, or any monument to represent the African American community. We ask that you join in the fight in UNITY, COMMITMENT, and SOLACE to save our legacy. Let's mend the divide. Will you join us? Thanks in advance for your support and please keep the African American community in your hearts and prayers.
