TEXAS CITY — There are many schools across America named for Booker T. Washington, a civil rights activist and a teacher from Virginia. Washington also founded the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama, which is now known as Tuskegee University.

In 1912, black students in Texas City went to school at First Baptist Church on First Avenue, and all classes were taught by Drucilla Kiltrell. Professor H.K. Hornsberry was the school’s first principal until 1935. After Hornsberry’s tenure, Professor George Sanders came aboard and stayed until 1947.
