CARVER-HILL HIGH SCHOOL
Historical Marker Unveiling
Mr. Samuel Allen was on hand to
help Mr. J. C. Connor, chief information officer for the Okaloosa School
District, unveil a historical marker commemorating the site for the former
Caver-Hill High School, which now serves as the Carver-Hill Administration
Complex for the Okaloosa County School District.
Mr. Allen and his wife Caroline Baker Allen spent a large part of their
lives and teaching careers teaching at Carver-Hill High School. They taught
at Carver-Hill from the time it opened in 1954 until it closing in 1969 and
could hear the school bell ring fro their near by home where he still lives
today! The historical marker means a whole lot to Mr. Allen and the many
proud Carver-Hill High School Alumni that also attended the proud unveiling.
In recent years, the Carver-Hill Administration Complex has been
renovated. Okaloosa County Superintendent of Schools, Alexis Tibbets
credited Mr. J. C. Connor for convincing the school district to renovate the
PROUD ALUMNI: Former students and
teachers from Carver-Hill High School pose for photographs
commemorating the placement of a historical marker at the school site!
