Remarks: These students were admitted to Allen High
School because Burnsville had no provision for our Black students beyond elementary
school. When the one room school house was condemned in Burnsville, our children
were bussed into Asheville. Travel time daily was over four hours in unheated
busses. This included students from the first grade thru eighth grade. Allen
High School played a major role here.
