Building on a Rich Tradition of Academic Excellence

HELP US BUILD OUR LIBRARY 


White Station’s library was at one time the hub of the school. The 7,000 SF facility faces Perkins and is strategically positioned at the front entrance of the school. This library has not been upgraded in more than 60 years. Despite outdated facilities, our students maintain a nation and state-wide reputation of high achievement. Renovations to the interior and exterior of our learning hub will support students and launch them into greater success. Your contribution is encouraged and much appreciated as we boldly pursue improvements for our school. 

RENOVATIONS:

Interior: increase floor map to 15,000 SF; one new Distance Learning Lab, one new Maker’s Space, multiple computer banks, tutoring rooms, a formal conference room, and yoga studio. 

Exterior: a new west-facing façade to allow in bright light and provide a renewed sense of unfastened space. A major landscaping plan for the front is also planned with two courtyard spaces (naming rights opportunities included in the exterior courtyards), a tri-flag entryway.


Your gift will honor our beloved librarian, Mrs. Irma Roberts. Help us reach our goal to name the new library campaign in Mrs. Robert's memory. Pledges that reach $2.2 Million, will secure her legacy as the “Irma Roberts Library” at White Station—a fitting title for the school’s favorite librarian. Let's honor her 100 years of life - donate today. 


HONORING MRS. IRMA ROBERTS 

Mrs. Irma Roberts touched many lives during her time as White Station's Librarian, a tenure spanning the mid '60s to the mid '80s. While Mrs. Roberts was retired for over 30 years, the friendships she made with her students remain vibrant. 

In a recent interview, Mrs. Roberts was asked about her favorite job, and she replied: 

"My favorite job was being the librarian at White Station High. I was fortunate enough to receive this coveted position in 1964, and worked there 22 years. I loved being Librarian as I got to know all the students. Since I did not give them grades, they could relate to me in a different way than they did classroom teachers. White Station had such a good reputation all over the state. We had an outstanding faculty, excellent students and parents who cared. I was student council advisor for many years, responsible for homecoming ceremonies and also responsible for Queen of Clubs program which was a yearly production. I loved being at White Station and to this day I keep up with many of my former students. I will forever be a Spartan.

The timing of White Station’s renovation project could not have been better as Mrs. Roberts celebrated her 100th birthday in May 2021 and regretfully passed in December 2023. White Station, along with Mrs. Roberts’ family, friends, former students and co-workers have created this fundraising drive in Mrs. Roberts’ honor and memory. Join us in honoring her 100 years of life and legacy - donate today. 

The White Station of your days is the White Station of today. Thank you!
