Since The Star ran a piece last month on the lack of books at Anniston High School, donations totaling about $100,000 have rolled in. A May 2006 fire destroyed the library, and the school is working to restock its shelves.
The most recent gift of $30,000 came from the family foundation of Anniston attorney Donald Stewart. Thanks to AHS librarian Becky Brown for sending this photo my way. Pictured, left to right, are Principal George Jordan, Brown, Priscilla Stewart and Lulu Stewart.
