Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us
Welcome in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for joining us in our celebration of friends and family and the remembrance of our loved ones.
This service is dedicated to the men and women that attended and served historically black schools in Harford County such as Fairview. Teachers Fannie Bell Jackson and Catherine Lee Gease taught students here. Many students later attended Bel Air Colored High School which opened in 1935. Bel Air was one of two high schools for “colored” students.
Bel Air Colored High School was overcrowded and classes were eventually held in New Hope Baptist Church, Ames Methodist Church and the old fire house. The school continued in service until Central Consolidated School opened in 1950.
The Alumni & Friends Committee would like to thank the families that have submitted memorials to their loved ones who have gone to glory and the local businesses that have placed ads in this booklet. Please patronize the businesses that support us. Most importantly, we give thanks to God, for without Him this day would not have been possible.
