1959 Graduation Program In A PDF File

Jimmy Musso had a copy of our 1959 graduation program, which he hung on the bulletin board at Hugh's place during our Friday evening festivities.  Many classmates did not know it was there.  Jan Lyons, after the reunion, took possession of it, at least temporarily.  She made it available to us to be scanned into a portable document file (PDF).

This document answers a question that was asked many times during the reunion.  How many classmates actually graduated with our class on Monday, June 8, 1959?  The answer is 370.  Did you remember that Albert R. Liggett was our third and last principal?  Did you remember that Cornelia Anne Bryant was valedictorian?  Did you remember that George Talvin Coward was salutatorian?  Cornelia and George, can you produce copies of your respective speeches for posting on the class blog?

This is a slideshow of photographs taken by me, Allan Davis, at the 50th reunion festivities.  I walked around shooting at random, so if I missed you, please forgive me.  Some were taken Friday, some were taken Saturday, and some were taken Sunday.  Enjoy!

50th Class Reunion Program For Saturday Evening, October 24, 2009

 I have made a PDF copy of our reunion program for Saturday evening, October 24, 2009, available on the link below.  We have had a couple of requests for this document.  Rather than getting into snail-mailing, we will afford classmates the opportunity to download it and print it for themselves.
