  4. Hello!
    I am Michael Marshall, a 1963 graduate of Fairmont Heights high School, where Mr. G.James Gholson was the Principal. A classmate of mine, Mary McKinney spearheaded the cause and was primarily responsible for the naming of G. James Gholson Middle School. This is the first time that I have become aware of your cause. I will tell the members of the Fairmont Heights High School Alumni Association about you and your website. I would like to post a link from our contacts page to your website. I have already made it a favorite on my browser.
