Albert “Butch” Hopkins Jr.
St. Augustine School Class of 1955 President & CEO, Anacostia Economic Development Corporation Washington, D.C. “There was a sense of caring that the teachers had that was very similar to how our parents cared for us and wanted what was best for us, including disciplining us when necessary. We had basketball and baseball for the boys, which got me involved, and the girls had dance classes and music. The sports and cultural opportunities were very helpful. The older kids looked out for the younger kids, so you had not only the teachers but other students looking out for you.”
