Robert and Charmaine Price

The contributions of Mr. Robert and Dr. Charmaine Price were recognized on February 10, 2024, at the 8th Annual Carter G. Woodson Luncheon of the DFW Branch of ASALH. The luncheon was attended by family, friends, and members of the Dallas education community. ASALH members Robert Edison and Joan Bouldin, retired Dallas ISD educators, spoke of their own connections to the Prices and how they were inspired by the couple. Dr. Joyce Foreman, Dallas ISD school trustee and Adrienne Jones, Principal of the Robert and Charmaine Price Career Institute, presented the Prices with a framed rendering of the plans for future upgrades to the school.

Also at the luncheon, the Dulaney Branch announced that the Know Your Heritage Bowl would be named the Robert and Charmaine Price Know Your Heritage Bowl to honor their commitment to educational excellence.
