The Glenwood Barrow County High School Alumni Association has rescheduled its strategic planning session for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at the Winder Community Center. The group, comprised of graduates of the segregation-era Glenwood elementary and high School, is planning a full review of the Barrow County Board of Education over its recent refusal to name the new middle school in Statham in honor of the first principal of the Glenwood school.
Meanwhile, in another new development, a second community-based group has formed and plans to ask the BOE to allow it to use the soon-to-be-vacated middle school in Winder as a services-driven community center.
The concept of the Glenwood Barrow Community Historical and Educational Foundation is to bring together in a single location services currently provided by various non-profit agencies around Winder such as the Boys & Girls Club of Winder-Barrow County.
