Alabama Bicentennial

Four Montgomery Public Schools have been named official Alabama Bicentennial Schools.

Baldwin Arts and Academics Magnet, Bear Exploration Center, LAMP High and Sidney Lanier High were chosen to help the Alabama Department of Archives and History celebrate the state’s 200th birthday.

Each school will receive $2,000 to help strengthen the bond between the school and community.

Lanier plans to use the money to help stock its food pantry for needy families. LAMP will use the grant money to build a community garden.

In summer of 2019, the schools will issue a report on their projects, and three schools per congressional district will be chosen as Alabama Bicentennial Schools of Excellence.
