To The Seniors of 1969
By Erin Moss, Principal

     "This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man."


      For years we have known you, worked with you, counseled you, and given you our best to help you grow physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. We have rejoiced to see you excel in music, athletics, and other activities; to see you serve beyond what was required of you as Student Council officers, members of the annual and paper staffs, and officers of your class; and to see you master work in the classroom. We have seen you stand tall as individuals and thanked God for you.
     Now it is time for you to leave us, but we shall keep our love for you, our interest in you, and many fond memories of you. Before you leave, there is one more request that I should like to make of you: read Proverbs 3: 5-6, commit it to memory, follow its instructions, and claim its reward.

Coach Paul Pounds

     "It was good to hear from you. Paul got out of coaching when we moved to Columbia (MS) and I just quit working for Stennis Space Center. We own a B&B which I run and Paul is Director of the Exposition Center and Recreation for the city. Things are great. Paul spoke at the Petal High School Football banquet last night and we saw people we haven't seen in 30 years. Thanks for adding us to your list. We would love to attend the reunion if we can. We were there in 63 and 64. Thanks again for your e-mail and we hope to see you in April. Keep us posted. Brenda"
