This book is an anthology about the first decade of Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, Alabama, written and compiled by persons who supplemented their unique personal experiences at the school with research on the same. The "echoes" of the title refers to how life experiences reverberate back to us. Thus, from the beginning, its editors and writers thought of this little book of big memories and lessons of life as a compendium of the strong, positive echoes they recall from Lee and the few negative ones they cannot forget, which seem still to be informing and inspiring the lives of the school's graduates.
The audience for Echoes is, of course, all past Lee High alumni, faculty, and staff and all present and prospective Lee students, faculty, and staff, along with any who support or have supported them and/or the school, and any others with sufficient connections to Lee or Lee people to enjoy reading others' recollections of their time there. The book might also be useful to anyone with a general interest in public secondary education in Montgomery County.
