NEW ORLEANS - The oldest boys' high school in New Orleans is marking a milestone.

Jesuit is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the school's integration.

On Thursday,  several notable alumni will take part in a panel discussion to mark the occasion, including Edgar "Dooky" Chase, a graduate of the class of 1967. He was in the studio along with Father Raymond Fitzgerald, president of Jesuit.

The panel discussion featuring Chase, as well as former mayors Moon Landrieu, Marc Morial and Dr. Stephen McKenna, is at 7 p.m. at the Jesuit High School Auditorium.

It will be followed by music from Charmaine Neville.
