High school seniors hear Rev. Sommerville.

Wilson Daily Times, 25 May 1936.

Wilson Colored High School (whose name was soon to change to C.H. Darden High School) invited Rev. W.C. Sommerville to deliver a baccalaureate sermon to the Class of 1936. Rev. Sommerville’s sermon, “The Battle of Life,” drew from I Timothy 6:12. Virginia State College president Dr. John M. Gandy addressed the commencement address.
