A Pathway to Opportunity : High Point Normal and Industrial Institute

During the era of segregation, the High Point Normal and Industrial Institute opened the doors of education to generations of High Point's African-American citizens. Thanks to the leadership of principals Alfred J. Griffin and Edward E. Curtright, the Institute, later renamed William Penn High School, earned a reputation for its high quality vocational training, robust academic curriculum, and lengthy list of distinguished alumni.
