Community Council Passes a Resolution for SCA

On Dec. 2, the Sewanee Community Council passed a resolution thanking the Sewanee Civic Association for its work to commemorate the desegregation of the Franklin County Public Schools with a historical marker at Sewanee Elementary School.

In the 1960s, a lawsuit brought by a coalition of 16 local African-American and white citizens led to the realization of desegregation in the county.

The commemoration ceremony will be held Sunday, Jan. 19 at Sewanee Elementary School.
