Lane High School

David Sloan: Rock Hill Academy was essentially established during the time of integration.

George Gilliam: Segregation academy.

David Sloan: Right.  And the only way I can remember because I never asked my parents how I ended up in a private school, because we financed everything we ever had, cops don’t make a lot of money and neither do secretaries.  And the only thing that I can put two and two together is that George Bailey, the sheriff of Albemarle County, his wife was the headmaster — headmistress of Robert E. Lee school.  And I can only assume that was either free tuition, scholarship tuition for children of police officers.
