Restoration Update
Monday, October 03 2016

It is with the heaviest of hearts we share the passing of Rosetta Sears Scott. She was the true champion of the Banneker School restoration receiving numerous awards in recognition. Motivating so many people to the cause through her epistolary efforts and personal generosity, Banneker School stands in its current restored state in a large part to Mrs. Scott's unwavering dedication.

Banneker School Foundation, her community, and countless others can be thankful for her efforts in saving this precious piece of history for future generations to learn from and enjoy. We will keep you informed regarding services as they come available.

Fabulous night at Christmas on the River with Rosetta Scott & Gaylon Hoskins, this year's Bill Grigsby Lifetime Achievement recipients along with Lucille S. Douglass (posthumous). It was such a warm reception, we didn't even feel a nip in the air. Special thanks to Chief Chrisman for arranging all the special accommodations with his squad. It was truly a wonderful evening!
