Thank you to Mrs. McCants' class for all their hard work.
On August 31, 1964 Rosewood Elementary School was one of many schools across the state of South Carolina that opened its doors to African American students. Robert and Andrew Fruster, Eugene and Cynthia Turnipseed, and Beverly Ann, Evelyn, and Pamela Cleveland were the first African American students to attend Rosewood Elementary School. That day, 50 years ago, meant the end of segregation at Rosewood Elementary School and the beginning of togetherness - everyone working and learning together.
