2003 Reunion. In 2003, all 22 of the Councill Training graduating classes reunited for the second school-wide reunion. The celebration followed a similar pattern to that in 1992, beginning with class parties at the Huntsville Hilton and other sites on Friday evening. On Saturday morning, August 23rd, more than 800 alumni gathered at the Ernest Knight Center on the campus of Alabama A&M University for a reunion brunch and a tour of the old Councill Training School building. They were intrigued by a video developing the reunion theme: “Rekindling the Councill Spirit,” and featuring pictures of students and activities from the 22-year existence of Councill Training School. The video evoked fond memories. The reunion climaxed with a banquet and dance at the Von Braun Center on Saturday evening with approximately 1,000 alumni and guests in attendance. Schoolmates again worshipped at churches of their choice on Sunday morning. Like the first school-wide reunion, the gathering in 2003 rekindled the Councill Spirit.
