ROANOKE, Va. -

Five decades of Lucy Addison high school graduates are taking a stroll down memory lane this weekend.

The school originally opened in the late 1920's as part of what was then segregated school system.

Former students are getting together at the Holiday Inn on Ordway Drive.

People from all over the world will catch up and reminisce.

"That's the best thing in the world, you know I just sit at that table and say, maybe you don't need a name tag but I do, but I remember them all and they remember each other. they keep in contact," event organizer Mattie L. Johnson said.

Former students can look forward to a special presentation featuring a helmet from the school's original football team in the 20s.
