High school principals--United States
African American school principals
L.C. Jones, principal of Jones High School in Orlando, Florida, from 1912-1931. When Jones became principal of what was then known as the Johnson Academy, the first area public school for African-Americans was located on the corner of Chatham Avenue and West Jefferson Street in the Parramore/Lorna Doone neighborhood of downtown Orlando. The Jones family donated land a few blocks away on the corner of Parramore Avenue and Washington Street and the newly constructed brick colonial revival building school was renamed in honor Principal Jones in 1921. The school was finally moved to its current location at 801 South Rio Grande Avenue in 1952.
