Got any stories? Where you at now? Did you go to grade school at Concord or Hayward? Where did you live, concord, netherlands, hayward? I remember picking cotton to make money for our senior trip. I graduated in 1961 myself and undoubtedly was the best year ever at old Ross high!!!

Concord to Ross. Graduated in 61 and yes we did pick that cotton. Farmer donated the cotton if we picked it. We didn't even have to be trained. And we were the best class that Ross ever had. Well most of you. I'm not sure about me.

I remember Coach Rorex wanted to teach us a little about all sports. He once took a bunch of us over towards Wardell and put us out and told us to Run back to school. We ran til he was out of sight then sat down and waited on a car to come by and caught a ride to about a couple hundred yards from school then jogged on in to the school just like we had ran all the way. Mr. Bass and Mrs. Ellington were great teachers too. We had some great times at old Ross High!!!

Since you are one of the smart ones, compared to me, you don't have to brag about it and make me feel bad. Give a clue who you are because I would have guessed wrong. Give a good clue because just because I sound stupid doesn't me I not.

Thats me! Yes i was in Nashville for a while in the music business but moved back to Sikeston, mo. where my Family lives. I got a little age on me you know what i mean. DT told me you lived in Overland park I think. I had a son that lived there at one time but didnt know you were there. I guess you and I are the only ones that read this darn thing. haha!You retired yet? I have about 3-4 times.

If you think about it we may be the only two that can still read and write. I work in OP, Ks. Yes, still working and not planning on retiring anytime soon unless the company decides it's time. I talk to DT every now an then but not often. Talk to his sister quite often. I think (bragging) that I might know how to contact you. If you don't mind I will try to give you a call.

Yea 1960 was the class that they wanted to hold everybody back a year but thought it would make the teachers look bad! The class of '61 told them they'd all quit if they did!! I always felt sorry for your class Ross Grad but was sure glad when y'all were gone!!hahahaha

Yea, that is true. We did have an incident that caused a lot of upset people, especially the chaperones. But we also had a good senior trip. Never heard anything about wanting to hold the class back. They probably wanted to get rid of us like they do every senior class.

Yea i made that up about holding you back! haha Give us a clue who you are. Only about three of your class still live there and two of them cant spell. haha I have talked to two of you recently I think. We went to Gatlinburg, Tn. on our senior trip. We had a good time and I believe we all became friends for life on that trip as we realized just how much we meant to each other. Sure were some good times!
