Name: REv. Julius M. James
City: Tacoma, Washington
Comments: I am in favor of the BTW project, to rebuild and revise the school facility at it's present location. Using funds designated or available for this porpose. It would be a loss to the African American Community not to have a school so rich with history become non exisitent. There was a time in which a choice of school was dependent on where in the city one lived. BTW was one of those choices and forged a community of young African Americans who through many trial and tribulations over came hardships to formulate citizens contributing this day to society. This rich pride and achievements should not become something of the past but a part of the future of a great city. There is just something about "LION PRIDE"
