Over the years the R. R. Moton High School Alumni Association has had many donors and contributors to the success of the organization. Many contributors have provided support by donating money and time through participation in meetings, program development and reunions. We are unable to mention all of them, but at this time we would like to highlight a few to just say,“Thank You”!
One of the most generous contributors to the Association’s Scholarship Fund, and member of the R. R. Moton High Hall of Fame, Mr. Nathan Martin (Class of 1956), has created a presentation that allows viewers to reflect and reminisce. The montage consists of pictures from previous reunions as well as additional pictures. Thank you Mr. Martin for all you do to “Keep the Legacy Alive” and support the scholarship fund of the Robert Russa Moton High National Alumni Association.
Another generous contributor to the Leeds community, and Legacy of the R. R. Moton High School Alumni Association, former Auburn and NBA basketball star who graduated from Leeds High School in 1981 is Charles Barkley. Mr. Barkley donated $1,000 to each employee at Leeds High School. He is the son of the late Charcey Mae Barkley Glenn another strong supporter of the Association. A special thank you to Charles for his support of the Leeds Community. The Article, “Up From Leeds”, chronicles some history and events surrounding the Legacy of Leeds and the Leeds community.
The Chaplain for the Association, Rev. Dr. Johnny Hicks has also made significant contributions to the organization. In addition, he adds his time and energy while serving on the Executive Board. His responsiveness and attention to projects is very much appreciated. His achievements have been acknowledged in the Association’s Spotlight Section. Consider adding your name or someone worthy of acknowledgement to the Spotlight Section via the submission form on that page.
