“Diana Ross,” “Aretha Franklin,” “Henry Ford” and “Gerald Ford” to recruit for DPS Alumni Association Wednesday for first-ever Drop and Drive event

Diana Ross (Cass and Commerce High Schools), Aretha Franklin (Northern and Commerce), Gerald Ford, Henry Ford, Rosa Parks, Mayor Coleman Young (Eastern and Miller), Art Van Elslander (Denby), Elijah McCoy, “Bo” Schembechler Jr. and other famous Detroiters – or more accurately, their likenesses — will be recruiting new members for the Detroit Public Schools Alumni Association Wednesday for the district’s first-ever Drop and Drive event.

Thanks to a loan from the Parade Company, the Big Head likenesses of 11 famous Detroiters will be outside the New Center One Building from 3-4 p.m., soliciting memberships from motorists and passersby. The heads are among those seen every year in America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
