From humble beginnings in King George County to making a big difference for others in the world.

There’s an old saying that good timber does not grow easily. It needs heavy wind and great adversity to grow strong. In this same sense, Ralph Bunche High School alumni have grown up to acheive tremendous things in the course of their careers. Below are just a few of the heroes that started out in the classrooms at RBHS!
