90th Birthday Celebration
On January 6, 2017, our beloved Dr. Carl Holmes celebrated his 90th birthday. This celebration was well attended by staff and alumni from San Francisco to New Haven Connecticut, and everywhere in between. There were tributes to Dr. Holmes, a wonderful dinner, and cake! There was also a musical rendition by Cassie Peters that really touched Dr. Holmes. Many of us booked the entire weekend to celebrate with Dr. Holmes and his family. During this weekend, some of us used the opportunity to visit Dr. Holmes’ fire station where his trophy (of the original 12) was stored. We also visited the African-American Museum where there is a whole section dedicated to his legacy.
