Who is Eddie J. White?

Eddie White taught in the school system in the early 1960's, when the system was still segregated. He worked his way up the administrative ranks to become an assistant superintendent, before retiring in the late 1990's. His lengthy career in education also included a stint on the county's school board, from 2005 to 2008.

"He continues to be a source of knowledge about over 50 years of history of this school system, that came from a turbulent period of time, to its golden age, as I like to put it," said Clayton County Board of Education Member Pamela Adamson, whose district includes the K-8 school. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrated on August 05, 2010, Adamson introduced White.

"After an educator retires, you wonder what else is there for them to do, but Eddie came back to serve on our school board during a crucial time in our district's history," she added. "I could not think of a better person to name this school after."
