Booker T. Washington School (BTW) is hav-
ing an all-school/all-year reunion this weekend
as part of Sapulpa's Centennial Celebration. The
school, which was founded in 1905, will wel-
come some 500 former students for three days o
activities including a dance, parade and picnic.
President of Booker T. Washington s Alumni,
Inc., Katie McGoy, graduated in 1966. Though
the school has a reunion every three years, she
said this one is special because of the centennial.
"We expect 500 or more people, McGoy
said Half of those will be coming from out-of-
state. “People like to come home and see how
Sapulpa is doing. They come to reminisce.’
Why have so many of the school’s graduates
left Sapulpa and the state of Oklahoma?
“1 think they were seeking brighter futures,
M<Nancy Randolph Davis, a BTW graduate,
stayed in Oklahoma and went on to a distin-
guished teaching career. Davis was the first black
student to ever attend Oklahoma State Universi-
ty and taught at Star Spencer school in Oklahoma
City until her retirement this year.
She will be unable to attend the BTW reunion
as she will be in Chicago accepting an ward.
Her nephew, Walter E. Randolph, is scheduled to
address the alumni at a reunion assembly on Sat-
urday morning at Mount Olive Baptist Church in
The reunion begins tonight at the Elks Lodge
with registration from 5-7 p.m. Cocktails will be
served from 7-9 p.m. followed by a dance featur-
ing “oldies” from the 40’s, 50’s and 60 s.
"People will be doing the twist, of course, and
the ’mashed potato,”’ McGoy said.
Sapulpa High School graduates Arika Martin,
Melissa McCormack, Latresha Thomas and
April Taylor will be receiving scholarships from
the BTW’s alumni association at Saturday s
