I am a 1969 graduate of Lakeside High School. Larry Lee Potts (and his younger sister Linda) began attending Lakeside under “freedom of choice” in the fall of 1966. Three black families enrolled their children at the formerly all-white junior and senior high school that year. Larry was part of the graduating class in 1969.
