What we’re all about
The Governor Morehead School Alumni Association is a progressive organization whose main mission is to actively support a productive quality of life for blind and deaf attendees, graduates and current students of the Governor Morehead School.
A little bit of history
The school was originally composed of two campuses. One located at 3320 Garner Road and the other at 301 Ashe Avenue in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The school was established by Governor John Motely Morehead in 1845 serving all ranges of blind and deaf students throughout the state of North Carolina. The Garner Road campus mascot was known as the Greyhounds for its basketball, track and field athletics. The Ashe Avenue campus mascot was known as the Chargers for its well-known wrestling team. The two campuses were merged onto the Ashe Avenue campus in 1977.
