The Bench Project

Dr. Clarice Graham Carter was a former teacher of Diggs and Latham Elementary Schools. In August of 2011, she held a reunion for her students and was given an award for her accomplishments. As a gift and legacy to the new Diggs-Latham School, Dr. Carter generously donated money to purchase a bench that will be placed in our school for the sole purpose of a special place for a child to sit, perhaps with a mentor, teacher, or volunteer, and think about and reflect on their special characteristics and character.
