Burley Segregation Memorial Dedicated

On Saturday, a memorial was dedicated to the African American students and faculty who attended and worked at the Burley Middle School during the era of segregation.
The memorial lists hundreds of names of people who were enrolled at or employed by the school in the 1950s and ’60s and took two years to design.
Several speakers at Saturday’s ceremony reflected on how far the school has come and then the attending crowd watched the big reveal of the memorial, including alumni whose names were listed on the wall.
