Did some research to today and found this from Tricities haunted places!! I guess I am not as ridiculous as you thought SO WHATEVER please tell me if it is in a book is the author of this book ridiculous also? I do not want to believe this was a real thing either but now I really wonder!!!
In his book Diggin' Up Bones, author Charles Edwin Price explains that the middle school in Elizabethton, is haunted by a teacher who was long ago killed in a car accident. Morbid children will say she floats through the halls at nights turning off all lights that have been left on. One benevolent influence she has, however, is the sudden feeling of calm she provides to nervous students who are in the middle of taking tests.
true that did happen and if you do leave lights on she'll turn them off.

ive also heard a story of a jokester hanging himself by accdient in the autotorium slamming lockers and turning loks upside down or unlocking them.

I believe her and I also believe in spiritual beings. Why would someone want to make that up anyway. I haven't been to Hampton High School in years,but there used to be a picture of a former basketball player hanging on the wall outside the gym. Don't even remember his name now. But anyway the story was he was killed in a car accident. People have said at night when all the lights were out you hear a basketball bounceing.I never heard it,but if people said they did, who am I to judge? I know this sounds stupid but.......
Barry Phillips was his name. And i've heard several former players say that at night when they would practice when the lights were off they could hear him upstairs bouncing basketballs

I remember when Barry Phillips died in a car accident,but he is not the same basketball player we were referring to. Although what you say may also be true,I have never heard anyone speak of it before.

My child is a student at T.A Dugger Jr. High in Elizabethton. My child came home from school and told me of a dark shadow that moved through the hall near the lockers where several other students were standing together. I was wondering if any other parents have had their child come home and tell of anything like this happening to them? I do not believe in ghost, but I would like a explanation of this....
Question: Is your oofspring at T.A. Dugger Junior High either: a) a special ed student, and/or; b) student who resides in the county?

It doesn't matter where the child lives. This is his way of insulting someone else. I do believe he thinks that "city" people are the only smart ones around and the people who live in the county are just plain stupid.

The mans name was Benny Smith. I was a former player. His picture is still in the hallway. He was killed hitch hiking from college coming home. May look back a few posts, June and I were talking about this same thing.........

My child lives with me and I live in the city but as the other people that have posted ask you, what does that have to do with anything? I do not appreciate you making a joke of something that upset my child greatly. How would you have felt being 11 years old and seeing something like this? I hope if you have children or grandchildren you never have to go through a similar situation yourself,because this was very upsetting to me as a parent as well to have no answer to give my child.

Have you talked to your since others have posted on here about similar things happeing at other schools? Maybe if you told your child there are adults that have heard and seen odd things, it will make your child feel better and not so scared.

If you are indeed a "concerned parent, you would probably want to take the litte tard over to the hospital in Johnson City to make sure that you kid doesn't have a brain tumor (and I only post the word "tard" here because that is what the other children in school while start referring to your little ghost whisperer if he or she talks about seeing black ghosts in the hallway)...

BTW, the reason for getting at city or county residence is to determine source of water supply...

When are you going to go and see if you are 'tard' or have a brain tumor? The only difference in mentally challanged people and you...they are smarter.

I've seen your posts.You are far from being'tard'. We could all learn a lesson from you,especially me. I just get defensive when people say mean things about others for no reason.I need to stop feeding that darn dog,goat or whatever it is.

Remembering the bullys in school it made them feel better to push around those who didnt play sports or who didnt fit in very well such as myself I guess they needed that to feel better about thierself Iam glad I never needed that.

I work at this school and I have seen this at night. It was a black mass coming out of a locker in the downstairs hallway, i honestly stopped and rubbed my eyes. I spoke with other teachers who have been there a long time and they all had stories about this. One pricipal even opened her door one night and asked them to stop slamming lockers. You can hear them in the gym playing ball...the squeal of sneakers on the floor and the bounce of the ball. This is true. it happens but we all get used to it after a while.

Elmer...you are disgusting! Stop posting so people will quit making fun of your stupidity. Also..even the learning disabled that you have labeled "tards" can spell "off" as in offspring. Haha...but you can't. You are the pathetic stereotype of southern ignorance.

I am also a student at T.A. Dugger goin on to 7th grade, last year I was sitting in my Social Studies class working on an independent assignment, and I looked into the hallway and saw a black shadowy figure that kind of looked like a grown man, and it suddenly got really cold as I got goose bumps...I havent told anyone because they might think I'm crazy, but I hope this helped.
