Happy Hundred: Coming Home to "Where You're From"
Poly High School now has a second marching 100 to remember: One hundred years have marched by since its first graduating class in 1912. To celebrate, on October 6 the centennial reunion drew about 2,300 former and current students and teachers. We filled the halls and shook the walls. The reunion was an incredible gathering, a Woodstock in orange and black. Thanks to Rita Morris Vinson and Judith Simpson, who over several months supervised the organization of such a monumental event. More photos and video clips here. And if you want to order a DVD of video shot at the centennial reunion and/or a CD of the "Poly Blues" and the alma mater, a form is here. The CD of the "Poly Blues" and the alma mater is made from the original 1952 78 r.p.m. record that was digitally remastered about four years ago. You may pay for all of these items with one check by using the order form as long as all items are mailed to the same address. If you want to order the DVD and/or the CD as a gift that you want the school to mail to a different person/address, fill out a separate form and a separate check for each person/address, and you will need to let that person know you have ordered the DVD and/or CD for him/her. The school will not be responsible for noting gift acknowledgments.
Former cheerleaders (on stage) and current spirit team members dance to "The Poly Blues" played by former school band members. (When did some kids from Paschal sneak over and scrawl all that graffiti on the backs of the chairs?)
Our Forty-Fifth Class Reunion
Our forty-fifth class reunion was held on September 8, 2012, in the Stockman's Club at Stockyards Station. It was quite a roundup: more than eighty classmates, some, such as Al Reader and Steve Lefler, from out of state.
You Must Be Weird, or You Wouldn't Be Clicking on This Link
Remember when "hip" was an attitude, not something that you fall and break? Phil Vinson, class of 1958, has found a short video about the Cellar on YouTube. The "Related Videos" menu includes other videos about the Cellar and even a video about Jacksboro Highway.
