IT WAS A GREAT TIME, FRI AND SAT NIGHT, SO MANY FRIENDS, EVERYONE HAS PROBLEMS AND BAD TIMES IN THEIR LIFE, BUT FOR THE FEW HOURS BOTH NIGHTS THERE WAS NOTHING WAS HAPPINESS, SOME CLASSMATES HAVE NOT SEEN EACH OTHER OR 50 PLUS YEARS, BUT ALL MELTED AWAY, AND THE GOOD TIMES WERE WHAT WAS REMEMBERED.LOTS OF OLD STORIES, TRUE OR NOT, THE GOOD MEMORIES WERE THERE, EVERYONE LOOKED GREAT, FAT, SKINNY, BALD, OLD, THE JOY FROM THE HEART WAS THERE MAKING EVERYONE YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL. ONIONS TO ALL WHO CHOSE TO STAY HOME, THEY MISSED IT, ORCHIDS TO THE ONES WHO CHOSE TO COME OUT. WOULD LOVE TO HEAR COMMENTS. COMPLIMENTS TO THE CATERER, ALL WENT WELL AND WAS GREAT. JUST HOPING THAT IN THREE YEARS THE HIGH SCHOOL WILL BE IN BETTER SHAPE AND UP TO PAR, BUT THE GOOD MEMORIES WERE THERE. A REMINDER, AT THE NEXT REUNION, WILL THE THE 100TH BIRTHDAY OF SOPHIA. A DOUBLE CELEBRATION. HONEYDEW

For Class Clown and Honey Dew. The school was purchased by the Cornerstone Free Will Baptist Church and they are refurbishing it. They were very kind in letting us use it for this reunion. Most of the Alumni perfer to come back to the school to reminise. The church is thinking that by 2012 they will have everything redone and the whole place air-conditioned. But even if they don't have it finished (by the grapevine) the majority wants the Friday night event at the school if possible. We are hoping that the new committee for the next reunion will be able to get permisssion to use it again. They did a wonderful job this time in my opinion and also by the grapevine!!

Yes, Cornerstone did purchase the old school and at the time of the purchase, the school was in terriable shape. All of the fire hydrants had been set of and white dried foam was everywhere. It had been broke into so many times there was glass everywhere and party debris all over the school. Nasty graffitti was everywhee also. There was several workdays that members of the church went and just cleaned for hours. Since then they have worked tirelessly repairing rotten floors, redoing the gym floor that was mildewed and boards popping up. Redoing bathrooms. I can't even add up the hours that they have spent there working. They have opened their doors to the community for many uses. They have allowed the adult education classes to be given there. The folks at Cornerstone really wants to move down to Sophia someday and they really want to be a part of the community. They have let the Youth Football team use the field since they purchased it. It is a great church anda great bunch of people. Pastor Tolliver is the most annointed man I have ever known. In 3 years I am sure you will be proud of how your old school looks.
