Lynchburg, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Dunbar High School
—Motto: Looking Forward Not Backward —
The successful school and its community are inseparable. The school is the community and the community is the school. All who knew and loved Dunbar High School admired its “quest for escellence” and its positive approach to public understanding. Both were factors in mutual respect and reciprocal action without which there could be no educational growth or development. Long live the Dunbar experience! Honor to its sons and daughters! —C.W. Seay - Principal, D.H.S. 1838–1968
