October 24, 2008
9 years and 5 months since
our Reunion.

    Huntsville High School celebrated a significant birthday in 2008: this fine school turned 100 years old.  Thanks to everyone who joined in the Centennial Celebration!  An overflow crowd came out to Huntsville High School, 2304 Billie Watkins Drive, on Friday, October 24, 2008, from 7-9 p.m. for desserts and an open house.  First-time visitors to the "new" school toured the facilities.  There was something for everyone.  The jazz band performed, AFJROTC led tours and performed precision drills, the 2008 Homecoming Court directed everyone to the honor ceremony, the choir led the alma mater, and students acted out favorite memories submitted by HHS alumni for the appreciative audience gathered in the cafeteria. Delectable desserts were provided by Delta Tri Sigma, Mrs. Lambert's classes, and HHS parents.  Student Council and class officers were also on hand to help.  The oldest living graduates were honored.  They include John Marion Byrne, Class of 1929; Thelma Hall Taylor, Class of 1931; Frank Beaty Wilson, Class of 1930; and Marian Phillips Harreld, Class of 1932. The names of all those who have joined the Centennial Club ($100 gift) were posted.  The Centennial Club remained open for membership until December 31, 2008, and plans are being made for the Centennial gift to HHS.  HHS alumni Scott Ratliff and Tim Good (Class of 1980) kept everyone in the party mood with music from Looking Back Band (www.lookingbackband.com) But the best part of the evening was the opportunity to reconnect with other HHS graduates and make new friends.  The HHS faculty and administration, the student body, and the PTSA appreciate the community's ongoing support of Huntsville's flagship school.  The tradition of 100 years of excellence at Huntsville High School continues into the next century.
