Historical Marker Unveiled at Carver Elementary School


The Carver School Committee unveiled a historical marker at Carver Elementary School in Decatur today.

Carver Elementary School is the first school in Alabama to be named after Dr. George Washington Carver. Dozens of people came out to witness the unveiling. Some of them were students who went to the school.

Several teens with Decatur Youth Services also came out to see the new marker and shared what this means to them and the community.

Meagan Green said, “It means a lot because it can’t ever be torn down, which is a really big thing, and also because it was once a place where people could come and study, which is really big because we want everyone to achieve in Decatur.”

Carver Elementary school opened in the late 1800s.
