A Little About Us

Charles M. Hall School was completed in 1926 and its doors remained open as a school through 1968 educating the Black population of Alcoa from grades 1 through 12. It was later renamed Alcoa Middle School, and it currently is serving as the Alcoa City Center. It is still one of the few Black schools still standing in East Tennessee. In 1990, late alumni Grady Knighton and Lewis Dobson were two of the founding members of an association to help keep their alma mater’s name alive.The first meeting was held at Franklin Street Park, where they elected Mr. Dobson as the first acting president of the Charles M. Hall Alumni Association.

The mission of the Association is to allow the name of Charles M.  Hall School to remain alive through the giving of annual college scholarships to assist the relatives of past alumni and the Blount County community.

To date, over $150,000 have been given to recipients, ongoing generations that represent the 1968 and prior classes.

The students seeking the Charles M. Hall Alumni Scholarship must have at least a 3.0 GPA and have received a letter of acceptance from a college or university.
