I read an atricle yesterday that said some guy named Poochie Groom went to Cedar Grove High School. I've never heard of Cedar Grove High. What years was it there and what was the school nickname.

I knew of a Cedar Grove Junior High back in the day (someone please tell me there nickname also)

Thank you!

Poochie went to East Bank High and as far as I recall there was never a Cedar Grove High. Yes there was a Junior High, but not a High School.

My older sister and brother graduated from Cedar Grove High School in 1964 and 1968.

Poochie went to Cedar Grove Community School (Kindergarten thru 12th grade) back in the late 60's. He may have been in one of the first graduating classes at DuPont when Cedar Grove and DuPont consolidated.

Did he not pass away a few years ago?? And wasn't his given name Dewayne?

Dude there never was a real Cedar Grove High School. It was just a school that had grades K-12 sort of like what the TV show the Waltons had. Just a school full of 6 to 18 year olds. Not really a High School just a community school.
I am confused

Then who did Cedar Grove Community School play football against? Did they have enough players to even field a team?

Okay let's get this straight,,, there was. Hence the word was.. A Cedar grove high. It was in the building that the cedar grove clinic now sits in.. It closed down and open as a clinic cedar grove community school never went to grade 12 it went from kindergatrden to 9th grade and instead of them going to cedar grove high after completion of 9th grade they went to DuPont Hugh when it was still a high school,, I have family that attended both the community school and the high shook when it wa still a high school. I also attended the community school from k-9. And yes poochie grooms is still alive an well rides his motorcycle and has a good life. He did attend cedar grove high. My mother went to school with him. An he lives in Glasgow y'all need to get your fats straight before y'all comment. But it's topics who does have thier facts strait at anytime

The last graduating class at CGHS was 1970,my older brother was a sophomore and completed his junior and senior year at DPHS. Poochie Grooms is alive and well and was also one of the best athletes to play in the old Kanawha Valley Conference.

Buddy Poochie was alright for that part of the county, but I promise you he wasn't all that. He was light years behind Claude Geiger of THE BANK and melvin Riggins of Dunbar and Stonewall and CHS had much better than that. he couldn't carry some of those dudes jock strap.
Poochie was average at best it's just some old timers up your way that think he was great. I watched him once and like I said
Average at best!

What records does that bum have? He may have set records for that pathetic little school house, but when it comes to the mighty KVC the boy would not have been able to hang.

Let's put it this way. if he had been at that time been on one of the East Bank, CHS, Stonewall or Dupont teams he would have been riding the pine.

It's true he was AVERAGE AT BEST!

P.S.

I can't find any records the boy had so help me out. Show us what records he has?
