History of Rosa A. Lott

Rosa A. Lott was born in Citronelle, Alabama where she spent most of her life. After graduating from high school, she continued her formal education at Alabama State Teachers College. Not only was she a great educator, she was a renowned humanitarian as well. Because of her love for and commitment to young people, she saw the need for a high school for black students in the Citronelle area. With the support of the community, she used her own money to travel on the Gulf Transport Bus month after month to the Mobile County School Board pleading for a high school for black students in Citronelle. It was largely through her untiring efforts that the Citronelle Consolidated School was built in 1949. She served as principal until her death in 1952. The school was renamed Rosa A. Lott in 1958 in honor and memory of her.
