Hello My father, Bill Overton, taught at Grady in the late 50s - 60s. He did not like to throw anything away. I have HS newspapers, teacher's grading reports, performance pamphlets and much more. If this is something anyone would be interested in, I will be glad to mail it. Teaching at Grady was the highlight of his teaching career. Warm Regards, Paula Overton Haynes

Students call for Atlanta high school to be renamed

The Associated Press ATLANTA — The newspaper staff at Atlanta's Grady High School is calling for the removal of their school's name. News outlets report that an editorial published last week in Grady's student newspaper called Henry Woodfin Grady a "white supremacist" and suggested alternative names, including Ida B. Wells, John Lewis, Andrew Young or Jimmy Carter. The editorial says Grady, an editor of and part owner of the Atlanta Constitution, promoted his vision of the New South, a vision that depended on maintaining white supremacy. The editorial also notes that a Houston school board last month voted to change the name of the former Henry W. Grady High School. Atlanta Public Schools said in a statement that the school must follow board policy, including appointing a special committee, if it wishes to change the name. Copyright The Associated Press

Coach Kell passed away on 4/19/2012

The renaming ceremony for the athletic field at Grady Stadium was on September 17, 2011

at Monroe Drive and 10thStreet, Atlanta, GA 30309. 

The field was renamed the 

Eddie S. Henderson, Sr. Athletic Field at Grady Stadium.

    

 
The athletic field was renamed in honor of the late Eddie S. Henderson, Sr., an Atlanta native and product of APS, who was the first Black Georgian to complete the requirements for Certified Athletic Director.  As the first African American coach at Grady High School, Henderson served in a number of roles, including physical education teacher, assistant and head football coach and athletic director. He also served as assistant principal at Carver High School, principal of the former Archer High School and APS Director of Athletics.  Henderson passed away in 2001.

Those scheduled to participate in the renaming ceremony included Atlanta Board of Education Chair Brenda J. Muhammad; Board member Cecily Harsch-Kinnane, who chaired the Grady Field Renaming Taskforce; Herman “Skip” Mason, General President, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.;  and the Henderson family. Note: Due to a scheduling conflict, Superintendent Erroll B. Davis was not able to attend.

 A Prayer for the New Year



God grant us this year a wider view,
So we see others' faults through the eyes of You.
Teach us to judge not with hasty tongue,
Neither the adult ... nor the young.

Give us patience and grace to endure
And a stronger faith so we feel secure.
Instead of remembering, help us forget
The irritations that caused us to fret.

Freely forgiving for some offense
And finding each day a rich recompense.
In offering a friendly, helping hand
And trying in all ways to understand;

That all of us whoever we are ...
Are trying to reach an unreachable star.
For the great and small ... the good and bad,
The young and old ... the sad and glad
 
Are asking today; Is life worth living?
The answer is only in, loving and giving.
For only Love can make man kind
And Kindness of Heart brings Peace of Mind.

By giving love, we can help this year
To lift the clouds of hate and fear.

Dear Mr. President,

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new AMERICAN Car. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes..

Mr. President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!

Also, deport every / any illegal resident in the country (men, woman and children) and secure our boarders with US National Guard.
