The Carver High Museum & Archives of West Georgia, Inc.

Carver High opened in the fall of 1954 as a consolidated county located in Carrollton, GA that served Carroll County's African American students from grade 8 through 12. It closed the spring of 1969 when all county schools were mandated to be integrated.
?CHMA sponsors two annual fundraiser (a Ball and a Golf Tournament). Proceeds go to cover CHMA's annual expenses and to support projects that fulfill its mission The "Blue & Gold" in these fundraisers' names pays homage to the school's colors: royal blue and gold. Carver's mascot, the Yellow Jacket, is incorporated into CHMA's logos.
Our last Ball was held in 2011 and had the theme: "A Black & White Affair" all Guests wore black white formal attire. This year's BLUE&GOLD WHITE PARTY is our twist on the ubiquitous "White Party" theme - where guests' attire and venue decorations are in all white.
