In the "Notable Alumni" section of this article it states: "Ronald McNair, 2nd black astronaut played football, basketball, baseball, and track at carver died January 28, 1986 in Challenger explosion"

Ronald McNair graduated from Carver High School (Now the Ronald E. McNair Middle School) in Lake City, SC, not the school of the same name in Winston-Salem, NC. I do not have any understanding of the format required to edit the page myself and no time right now to read the help page. I hope I have presented this discussion well enough for someone who does understand to make the correction.

My citations are his Wiki page which cites Smith, Bruce (2011-01-28). "Small SC town pauses to remember astronaut son". TheState.com. Retrieved 2011-01-29. [1]

His NASA bio page at [2] which states, "EDUCATION: Graduated from Carver High School, Lake City, South Carolina, in 1967"

And the About Us page of the Ronald E. McNair Middle School which states, " The school became Ronald E. McNair Junior High to honor our native son and alumnus, astronaut, Dr. Ronald E. McNair" [3]
