Gibbs Alumni Association to host hall of fame induction ceremony

ST. PETERSBURG –Mon., February 2, members of Gibbs Senior High School and the Gibbs Alumni Association will host its 5th Annual Administrators, Coaches and Athletes Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony.

A total of 14 individuals will be inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame during the ceremony.

Gibbs High opened its doors in 1927. The school was named after Jonathan Clarkson Gibbs, an African American who served as Secretary of State in 1868 and State Superintendent of Public Instruction in 1873 during the Reconstruction Era.

Gibbs’ greatest treasure is its heritage and its story of the black community in which it was raised. It was a segregation era high school and became a beloved community symbol. Graduates of Gibbs have continued their educational endeavors by becoming contributing members of society.

The school has a rich history of serving generations of students whose loyalty remains strong many years after they have graduated and gone on with their lives.
