The Ralph Bunche Alumni Association, is eternally grateful to the Honorable Virginia Congressman, Robert J. Wittman for his unrivaled Extension of Remarks regarding the history and legacy of Ralph Bunche High School that were entered into the U.S. Congressional Record on June 22, 2020.

The Congressman’s remarks began with the following words:

Madam Speaker, I rise today in recognition of the great history of Ralph Bunche High School. As one of the first African-American schools to receive equitable contributions in its funding, Ralph Bunche High School set the standard for our nation in addressing racial inequity.

With such a phenomenal and monumental endeavor to preserve a legacy of racial and educational equality, we praise Congressman Wittman’s humanitarianism, knowledge, understanding and deep compassion regarding Ralph Bunche High School’s significance and contributions to the state of Virginia and the Nation.
