Ted Note: I have no control over Google ad content below:

A subset of the group also attended a pre-reunion gathering Friday night at Joyce (Stivers) Friske's yard in Tulsa ... where the ladies "cooled their heels".
Larry Gannon created a fabulous 4x15 foot banner for the class with our graduation, 10 year reunion, and old CHS photos.
Mr. Bob Gougler (our math teacher and sponsor) along with his wife and many more classmates behind them. Coach Bob Martin also attended.
Our class has lost far too many to death already. We lost Gary Howard, Tony Dotson and Derrell Peay before we even graduated. Since graduation (those we are aware of from our "extended" former classmates list) lost are: Terri Black, Tabitha (Combs) Phillips, Verda Crocker, Benny Donahou, Terry Dotson, Ray Heckenkamp, Dean Horn, Ike Jackson, Wayne Jones, Earl King, Joyce McCullough, Bobby Tanner, Donna Thomason, Eddie Wimbish (and many teachers). There also many classmates who we could not locate who we hope will not add to this list.
I didn't get photos of everyone but will include a few samples of "buddies reunited" in the next few shots. Above: Hugh Hardie, Scott Murphy, Mike Heaton, John McCormick and Larry Gannon.
Beverly (Howard) Garman, Coleen (Troglin) Brashears, and Debbie (Herron) Hearn.
Jesse Boyd, Dean Eyler, Eddie Wilson, and Rudy Heaton.
When our CHS 1969 group became the first senior class to attend the "new" high school in the spring of 1969 there was no "CHS Commons". It was later built in an open area between the gym and the southern wing of original classrooms.

We spent just a few months in the new high school (above) after 3 and a half years in the old high school (built in 1912) ...not counting 2 more years for 7th & 8th grade in same building. -- Ted Wright -- CHS 1969
