Mayor Alvin Brown paid a visit to Robert E. Lee High School Wednesday to congratulate students, faculty and staff on their success boosting school performance.
The school has improved from a D rating to a B rating. Principal Dr. Denise Hall led the mayor on a tour so that he could encourage students to continue working for good grades.
