The County Commissioners voted unanimously at a public hearing on Wednesday, April 30, 2008, to convey the title and deed for Pomonkey High School in Indian Head to the Pomonkey High School Alumni Association. Of the four Commissioners present, all strongly supported and spoke in favor of the resolution.
Ms. Violet Simmons (front row, third from r.), president of the Pomonkey High School Alumni Association, was one of several persons present who testified about the historical significance of the building and the positive benefits that the school, once renovations are complete, would bring to families in Western Charles County.
