Alumni reflect on nerves, excitement and disappointment about the first day of school

By Meaghan Downs

Geneva Washington, now Geneva Howard, made history 50 years ago when she walked through the doors of Anderson High on the first day of school.
“At the time, I didn’t think about it,” Howard, one of the first black students to attend Anderson High School. “At the time, I knew it was something we had to do.”
Howard was one of about 16 African-American students from Lawrenceburg who attended the high school in the fall of 1963, the first year the school was integrated.
