Comments: All of my adult life I have heard my mother speak of nothing but pride and admiration for this institution. She spoke of the education she received, the teachers she encountered and the reputation of the instutution. I know that she has worked very hard with the Alumni Association to get this school restored. I think that FEMA should invest whatever amount of dollars are necessary to restore this historical institution. If that means tearning it down and start over, I am in agreement. The new structure needs to keep the name Booker T. Washington High School, it needs to have an acredited high school curriculum and that world famous auditorium needs to be restored. Please, this African American Community needs this institution. It is a landmark in the city of New Orleans
