Beauregard Parish Training School’s (BPTS) entry in the national register of historic places has been added into the significant notes section of the site. This is one of the few schools that we have information for in the List of High Schools by Parish Section and Significant Notes section. If you combine this information with the information from alumni, you will have a very detailed history of the school and history surrounding the school’s creation and effect on the Deridder, Louisiana African American Community. BPTS entered the national register of historic places on March 1996.
This entry not only displays the historical importance of Beauregard Parish Training School, it also shows the importance of alumni contributions to history. Information from both sources have different points of emphasis. The government cannot be the sole historical provider.
