    Oh, Carver High, we sing to thee
    Of love, devotion ever new.
    We'll pledge our loyalty to thee
    And triumph o'er what ever may be.
    We bless this day within thy walls,
    Thy precepts all we'll honor too.
    All hail! All hail! To Carver High
    To Crimson and Blue, we'll ever be true.
    Music and words by Dr. Awilda Coleman Smith

  • G. W. Carver High School is named after one of the world’s renowned scientists, George Washington Carver, who developed numerous products and processes that expanded the range of agriculture in the South. While working in his laboratory at Tuskegee Institute, he used the peanut, soybean, and sweet potato to make many different useful products for mankind.
