Godby High School


Amos P. Godby High School opened in 1966 as Amos P. Godby Junior High School with grades 7 & 8. The school shared its campus with the newly created Tallahassee Junior College (present day Tallahassee Community College). Due to the small number of African American student population, court-ordered desegregation was implemented during the following year. The school colors, of royal blue and white, along with the school mascot, a Cougar, were chosen during the opening year. In 1968, now having grades 9-11, the name was changed to Amos P. Godby Junior Senior High School. The first graduating class was in 1970.

This collection from Godby High School includes all the yearbooks published by its student body from the first class in 1969 to its most recent graduating class. Through the FSU Libraries partnership with the school for this initial project, we hope to provide access to future yearbooks as well.
