Annual Book Award

The legal system can force open doors and sometimes even knock down walls, but it cannot build bridges. That job belongs to you and me.

— Justice Thurgood Marshall

The All Together Book Award recognizes one senior student from each of the four area public high schools who is known as a peacemaker and bridge builder. Students are chosen for the award by consensus from the professional staff in each of their schools. Winners receive a book and a $500 check and can be acknowleged at the NAACP Celebration of Scholars held in the Spring. The award was established in memory of Jack  Charlton, the first President of All Together.
