Welcome to the Blackwell School-Savannah Balderas

Transcript:

Good morning LHIP! My name is Savannah Balderas, and I’m a Visual Information Specialist for the Blackwell School in Marfa, Texas standing in front of this gorgeous view of the mountains in Fort Davis.

The Blackwell School was founded in 1909 as a segregated school in Texas designed exclusively for Mexican-American children until its integration in 1965.

A small team of us here at the Fort Davis National Historic site are currently in the process of transferring land ownership rights to the National Park Service from Marfa ISD in order to declare Blackwell School as the newest addition as a historical site as well.

I am so excited and lucky cause its not every day that you get to be a part of something as historic as the formation of a new site, but if I am being honest I am also looking forward to experiencing all the nature and wildlife that West Texas has to offer!
