Carver, Keeley elementaries celebrate milestone anniversaries

Carver and Keeley elementary schools recently celebrated decades of exemplary education with students, current and former staff and community members. 

Carver honored 10 years by sharing memories, recognizing staff who have served since day one, and celebrating the school’s pride and culture. Board of Trustees President Linda Griffin served as keynote speaker, detailing the school’s history and original location. The first Carver Elementary served Garland ISD’s African American students—some of whom were in attendance and even sang the original alma mater. The celebration ended with a lively reception that was rich with bites, recollections and fellowship.

Keeley kicked off its 25th anniversary with a performance by the fifth-grade choir. Guests were then invited to a reception in the library, where a plethora of memorabilia was on display. Yearbooks, photographs, T-shirts and a video slideshow visually detailed the campus’ quarter century of existence. Staff members who helped open the school and are still making an impact at Keeley were acknowledged with a special gift—an engraved crystal award.
