On November 12, 1938, a meeting of the Alumni convened and the loosely organized body voted to name and establish an alumni association to be called the “Pine Mountain Settlement School Alumni Association.” The new Chairman of the Association at that time was Oscar Peace. He announced to the gathered students a Constitutional Committee recommendation, that of a newly revised constitution. It was read and accepted by the vote of those present.
