ALUMNI - July 12, 2007

Thanks to all who worked so hard to make the Calhoun County High School Alumni Reunion such a memorable event. The officers, Loyd Wright, Ann Smith, Jean Simers and Emily Gainer, worked well with their group of volunteers. Of course, the efforts and dreams of earlier officers and volunteers, such as Ila Grey Snider and Bill Ice, will be remembered each year.

Larry Cottrell, Class of 1962, recalled a long list of teachers who helped influence the members of his class: Kenneth and Martha Hall, Cecil Johnson, Louise McDonald, Kate Holliday, Fred Barnes, Eugene Reynolds and Wayne Underwood. He also included the janitors, Shirley Hosey and Holly Kerby, because they were friends to all. Even the cooks, Lorena Kelly and Icie Ball, were remem-bered for their biscuits. Hudepol was another name from the past. The crowd was reminded that he parked his gum behind his ear and would walk the sidelines, leading the Hudepol cheer, “Come on, Calhoun!”

Beverly Prince, Class of 1957, read the poem, “School Days and Teenage Nights,” by Anita Evans, 17, of Lewisburg, Tenn.


Pondering thoughts, dreaming dreams,

Going to dances, devising schemes.

Planning parties, taking tests,

Always remember, never forget.


School days and teenage nights,

Getting cars and motorbikes.

Watching TV, drive-in shows,

Where’s the time gone? No one knows!


Chasing boys and running wild:

Your mom still treats you like a child.

Home by ten, asleep by eleven,

Up in the morning for school at seven.


Graduation comes at last;

We reminisce about the past.

Our high school days have been the best--

Always remember, never forget!

Last Saturday, the halls of Calhoun High School rang with laughter as tales were told of pranks played on teachers, sports stories, class events, and town and county festivities. Pledges were made to “See you next year. It has been fun!”
