School Story: Your Comments About Our School

I remember sophomore year there was a "back to school dance" in the old armory. When James Brown's "I'm Black and I'm Proud" came on, everyone got off!
Dated: James "Woody" Wood, Class of 1970.
Bid whist! Need I say more?!?!
Continue to be in close contact with our classmate Eileen Wilson Gray and her husband Tracy who live in Atlanta. Also in close contact with Terry and Marsha Harps (Class of 1972) and Yvette Jackson Beasley (Class of 1972).
