Co-Captains were Dennis Grissom, Frankie Coogler and Jerry Savage (deceased). Jerry’s brother, Johnny Savage, went on the field in honor of Jerry. On Saturday, October 12th, all met at Camp Lee where refreshments and lots of reminiscing were enjoyed. Later a delicious meal was served.
Ed Kimbrough served as MC for the night and recalled several interesting incidences involving some of our classmates. Ed recognized all the veterans and thanked them for their service. Joyce (Brown) Wheeler and Margaret (Price) Jones were called upon to award several prizes. Mickey Gregory received an award for traveling the farthest; other awards were presented to Molly (McDaniel) Doss for having the most children, to Vera (Sanford) Hollingsworth for being married the longest, to Franklin Wofford for having lost the most hair and to Sherry Anderson Whiteside, Sparks Harper, Kay Davis Evans and Bobbie Hanson Ward for attending every reunion held.
A special “thank you” gift was presented to Betty White Kelley in appreciation for all the work she did to make our 50th Year Reunion an exceptional one. A moment of silent prayer was observed in honor of our deceased classmates, whose photos were displayed on a special table decorated by Linda Fagan Bright. The night ended with a delightful power point presentation by Betty White Kelley of photos/articles embracing our high school years.
