On a spectacular Saint Patrick’s Day evening, the Lucy. C. Laney High School Alumni Association held their annual Hall of Fame banquet to honor those alumni who embody the teachings and legacy of Lucy Craft Laney. During the evening, the Alumni Association inducted Honorary Alumni and added to their impressive list of Hall of Fame members, including Ms. Betty Beard, Reverend Johnny Hatney, and Mr. Charles Walker. One of many highlights of the evening included a demonstration of support by the alumni for the students currently attending Laney High School. Surrounded by the superintendent and several prominent community members, Mr. Johnny Nimes, president of the LCLHSAA, presented Mr. Virgil Smith, principal, with a check for $10,000. These funds will be used to support various student activities and is truly a blessing for Laney High School’s future alumni.
