Dear ROYAL Staff, Family & Friends of Carter G. Woodson Academy

Please mark your calendars for May 23, 2016 at 6pm…..your presence is requested at the Fayette County Board of Education Board Meeting(701 E. Main St.).  This night will be another historical time in the life of CGWA!  The Board will vote on moving the program from its current location at Crawford Middle School to the new high school located off Winchester Road/Hamburg area!!  We need you to show up in great numbers to show our Board that we are in support of this move and appreciate them taking the time to give us an official home.  We are not sure at this time where we will fall on the agenda that night but we ask that you please plan to attend and stay through the vote.  Thanks in advance for your time and all of your support these past four years!!
