Diana Ross - Ross & White's High School To Be Demolished

The Detroit, Michigan high school which once boasted DIANA ROSS, LILY TOMLIN, ELLEN BURSTYN and JACK WHITE as students is to be demolished.
Cass Technical High School closed six years ago and has been left abandoned ever since.
It has been victim to regular trespassing and vandalism since it shut its doors and now the city's school officials fear the old school is a safety hazard and plan to demolish it, despite protests from locals who feel the historic building should be revamped as an arts center.
White Stripes star White once confessed he learned to play the marimba "in a class at that school," adding, "Going to school there at age 14 was like all of sudden you were going to Harvard or something. It seemed like you were going to college."
