On May 28, 2011, reunion attendees elected Richard Allen, M.D. as president and Walter Lewis Fortson, J.D. as vice-President of the Russell County Training School Training School/Russell High School Alumni Association.
Dr. Allen now chairs the Board of the Russell County Training School Training School/Russell High School Alumni Association with directors Walter Lewis Fortson, Charlene Tolbert Crowell, Rufus Jordan and Caroline Scott.
The association, through the board, has applied for 501(c)(3) status and is actively planning efforts to preserve the site we all know as Russell County Training School and, further, to provide a place where residents of Hurtsboro and the surroundings areas can have a recreational area, tutoring and other services for the community.
The board invites the alumni of Russell County Training School and Russell High School to join in this endeavor and the board will be actively seeking your assistance.
