Cotton Plant High School

When integration came to Cotton Plant Public Schools in 1968, many white families moved to Brinkley (Monroe County) and Des Arc (Prairie County), and the town’s population dropped drastically. In 2004, Cotton Plant schools were consolidated with those of Augusta (Woodruff County). The high school closed, but the elementary school remains open. Today, Cotton Plant has no industry and few businesses, and the city struggles economically. Much of the historic downtown has been demolished, and only a few of the fine old homes remain.

Long before this building was constructed, my Dad, James Bascom Bassett, held his initial teaching and then superintending positions in this area the mid-1920's, following earning his Masters Degree at George Peabody for Teachers in Nashville, TN. One of those was in Cotton Plant and the other in Tuckerman, AR before moving to Pine Bluff and a long time career as an educator there.

I started here in first grade and I graduated in 1969. Every time I go by and see it, it is so sad, it breaks my heart.
