Most of us had already gone to school together since the first grade. Our glee club had over members with Miss Kitty Hamner our music teacher. Once we were all on stage practicing songs for a competition. Miss Hamner was directing in front of us with tears streaming down her face were the tears because we were so good or because we were so bad?
In their baby blue dinner jackets, blue and white cummerbunds and bow ties, they performed at a convention at the Barringer Hotel in Charlotte this was BIG time!
They also sang in the J. Almost everyone who went to our high school has a story to tell about Annie Leeour English teacher. One time during a class, she began choking. I know it happened in my junior English class, but others tell the same story that it happened in their class too.
Hmmmmm, what did she have in that vase?! I wonder if he still lives in Florida. There were always dances. Heaven forbid that we girls be so forward at any other time!! This was a dinner and dance given by the juniors to the seniors funds raised by selling magazine subscriptions with the tenth grade Home Ec.
Our costumes the year I was in the tenth grade were pirate outfits complementing the prom theme. Only juniors and seniors were allowed to attend. Every year at the end of May, each senior class took a trip to Washington DC spending a fun and educational week. There were always a few who would climb the stairs to the top of the Washington Monument rather than take the elevator.
Wonder if any of us could do that today!?

Music in the Fifties Oh how everyone loved to dance!!!! We learned to shag has a very different connotation today to the fast tunes. Talk about never dying - the shag dance steps are still going strong! Ray Shute in memory of his son, Sonny.
At last, when we made it to high school, we were old enough to go to the Teenage Club! The club was located on Main Street across from the old Post Office where Skyway Drive and the new courthouse are presently located. A lot of history was torn down in the name of progress.
