2017 Reunion. This reunion was held August 25-27, 2017 as the sixth all school reunion. Headquartered at the Von Braun Center, Huntsville, Alabama, more than 500 Councillites attended. Activities include the similar pattern as prior all-school reunions and gatherings. The Embassy Suites Hotel was the guest hotel for the event where registration took place and some out of town alumni lodged there. The Alabama A&M University board of trustees approved a master plan in 2013 calling for the demolition of the Councill Training School building along with more than a dozen other campus facilities. Currently, plans to demolish the building have been taken off the table and the building has been designated to house the Virginia Caples Lifelong Learning Institute (VCLLI). The VCLLI will be a state-of-the art center for meeting the needs of older adults and preparing them to age well. The proposal calls for collaborative fundraising between the institute and Councillites over the next three years to renovate the building. Councillites will have space for meetings and archives in the facility. This change shifted emphasis on forming the CTS Alumni Association that entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Alabama A&M to assist in securing funds to remodel the old CTS building that will house the VCLLI. Such collaboration drove the 2017 Reunion theme: “Proud to Celebrate and preserve Our CTS Roots”.
Between reunions, classes meet and plan activities. One such activity was the dedication of a historical marker at Councill Training School on May 5, 2002. The class of 1957, the 1992 School Reunion Committee, the Councill Training School Historical Marker committee, benefactors, and the Huntsville-Madison County Historical Society collaborated to achieve the momentous feat.
