FSK considering naming gymnasium after Carroll’s first African-American principal

Francis Scott Key High School is seeking feedback on a request from the community to name its gymnasium after longtime administrator Louis V. Beard, who was also the first African-American principal in Carroll County. Beard began his professional career as a teacher at the Robert Moton School in Westminster in 1955, according to a news release from the school system. Soon after beginning his teaching career, he was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served from 1955-1957. He was honorably discharged and returned to teaching at Robert Moton School and was advanced to principal, where he served until 1965. (Carr. Co. Times)
