LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — After school closed earlier this year, RA Hubbard High School plans to hold a silent auction with more than 400 items up for sale.
According to a Lawrence County Schools Facebook post, the school will be auctioning off several items from agriculture and home economics stores.
“Money raised from the auction will be spent on future career technology students in the county,” said Rollie Wright, the former RA Hubbard agriculture professor who will transfer to Hatton. “The auction will primarily benefit students enrolled in my agricultural science education program at Hatton High School.”
The event flyer said there will be over 400 items available for bidding. Some of the auction items are pictured below.
The in-person dates for the auction are July 25 and 26 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bids will open on July 26 at 8:05 p.m. and auction winners will be notified on July 27 and 28. Payment and pick-up dates will be July 29 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., and July 30 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The auction will take place at 12905 Jessie Jackson Parkway in Courtland.
“The auction will help us provide new equipment and updated materials, as well as registration and travel for student leadership opportunities across the state,” Wright continued.
As previously reported, the Lawrence County School Board voted last December to close the doors of RA Hubbard High School, citing tax issues and a low student population. A district judge ruled earlier this year that the shutdown could go ahead. RA Hubbard’s final graduation took place on May 26.
The school system said students would be reassigned to Hatton High School, East Lawrence Middle School and East Lawrence High School.
