The Beginning

Dr. Carl-Marbury

In an effort to preserve the legacy of the R. R Moton High School in Leeds, Alabama, Dr. Carl Marbury (Class of 1953) had the foresight to suggest the idea of developing a National Alumni Association. This Association seeks membership from Moton Alumni graduates and non-graduates.  It also seeks membership from Moton Alumni family members, friends, and associates.

The R. R. Moton National Alumni Association was formed in 2010. This Association stands on the broad shoulders of the former Moton High School Reunion Committee with Mr. Arthur Kelly (deceased) (Class of 1955) serving as a long-time Chairperson.  We are sorry to report that our dear Mr. Kelly passed away in December 2017.  Our condolences are with the family.  Mr. Lonnie Marbury (deceased) (Class of 1955) also served as one of the founders of the Association.  Mr. Marbury passed away in January 2018.

On July 18, 2021, we lost another leader of the R. R. Moton High Alumni Association, Mrs. Mary Marbury Hughes (Class of 1971). Mrs. Hughes served as the Second Association President. A tribute to Mrs. Hughes can be viewed by Clicking Here.

We would also like to express our sincere condolences to all the families in the R. R. Moton High School Alumni Association (Association) and the Leeds Community who have lost love ones.

We would like to encourage all members and the community to make donations to the scholarship fund and maintenance of the Association.. Credit cards can be used to donate online.
