About our class, from an article for the 55th anniversary
We were one of the smallest classes of that era to have been graduated from CHS. There were only 25 members of the graduating class. We were the depression babies!
Commencement for the class was Thursday evening, May 24, 1951, at 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium of Columbia High School, located at Guardian ST and Frazier Avenue.
The program for that night listed our motto: Still Achieving, Still Pursuing. Learn to Labor and To Wait; Our class flower: White Rose; and Class Colors: Blue and White.
The list of graduates are Eva Ethel Bailey, Charles Menden Barnes, Jane Moorman Barnett, Alice Jean Burton, Mary Louise Burton, Van Keith Burton, James Ray Callison, Edward Daniel Collie, Kathleen Collins, Thomas Wayne Curley, Wilma Lavelle Farris, Rosemary Hancock, Donald Lee Harris,
and Faye Rayburn Jones, Gene Oliver Lawless, Bonnie Lee Long, Sue Thomas McKinley, Edna Margaret Moore, Kenneth Wayne Moss, Flossie Marie Parnell, Bobby Louis Rowe, Maurice Dale Shepherd, Mazie Evalene Shepherd, Mary Louise Sparks, and Peggy Caldwell Waggener.Updated footnote to earlier article:
We have since lost three members of the class, Sue THOMAS McKinley, Alice Jean Burton, and Jane BARNETT Hutchison..
