C. Alton Lindsay Middle School

Named after educator and community leader, C. Alton Lindsay, Lindsay Middle School opened in 1969. Mr. Lindsay was hired by Elizabeth City County as the principal of Armstrong Elementary. It was said that he knew every student by name and about the child’s family.

May 18, 1942, he was elected Superintendent of Schools for Elizabeth City County, City of Hampton and Town of Phoebus. He was 38 years old and would reside in his office at Syms-Eaton Academy until 1968 when he retired. While superintendent, Mr. Lindsay saw the school population grow a thousand students each year for 26 years. Hampton had one of the first vocational schools. Schools were integrated in 1968 under his leadership and kindergartens added in the 1960’s. He purchased more land than any other citizen in the area and built 28 schools.

One of his happiest moment was when C.Alton Lindsay Middle School was named for him, just before he retired, June 30, 1968.
