Eastern High School

Working closely with the Eastern High School community, Capitol Hill Community Foundation, and Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives, we are excited to help develop an exhibit that celebrates the centennial anniversary of Eastern’s building on East Capitol Street. During the spring of 2022 our team searched local archives for materials to build out the exhibit content, as well as connect with Eastern alumni and area residents to capture the voices within the school’s walls over time.

Led by Ellen Dodsworth, our participating students are learning about the history of Eastern based on the information collected. They will then hear from Rodney Red Grant from Don’t Shoot Guns Shoot Cameras on the power of film and create their own documentary video based on a piece of their “school story” that interests them the most. Stay tuned for more details as this exciting project develops!
