Tragedy hit one of Montgomery’s most celebrated schools when fire consumed the building housing the cafeteria, counselor’s office, photo studio, art studio, broadcast media, library and a number of classrooms Friday night, August 18 at Booker T. Washington magnet high.  The campus is located on both the west and east side of Union Street in downtown Montgomery.

The school will be closed this coming week as the now-closed Hayneville Road school is readied for emergency use.
