  • I sure had a lot of fun there. Never made good grades but had a lot of fun and have a lot of memories.

  • I loved this high school and would have graduated in 1960 if we had not moved to Utah in 1958. If anyone knows of plans for a 50 yr reunion for the class of 1960 please share the info on Facebook.

  • I had a lot of fun here. These were the best years of my life. I wish I could go back. I'm 59 yrs old now and I see some of my old teachers every once in a while. Its fun talking with them.
