LRCH Students Named Living Heroes of the New South

The students of Little Rock Central High have been selected by a panel of distinguished jurors as new heroes of civil rights by Southern Living for their work on the ongoing experiement, The Memory Project. This year, Southern Living recognized four honorees for representing “the next generation of leaders forging a better future without forsaking a bitter past." We are so proud of all of the students who have participated in the Memory Project over the past nine years. This honor is well deserved!
