Doris Tilley has driven by the Wright School, on Roxboro Street in Durham, for 50 some-odd years. Many times, she’s thought of turning into the gravel driveway, to re-visit the place that had such a significant impact on her family.
Last Friday, she did just that, meeting with students and staff.
Tilley’s daughter was one of the very first students here, in 1963. It was one of the few positive educational experiences she would ever have.
