THE High...

Roar Lions Roar!

Our graduation year has been called one of the most pivotal in the 20th Century.  The Vietnam War was escalating, the civil rights movement was gaining momentum, women were fighting for equality, and "the whole world was watching."  During our senior year, The Temptations were in the middle of a concert at the Civic Center when the announcement was made that Martin Luther King had been assassinated.  On the night of our graduation, Robert Kennedy was killed.  In the midst of this turmoil, we were completing our time as Mountain Lions.  It was a time of innocence, a time of awakening, and a time of change.  With heartfelt cheers -- "sock it to 'em soul brothers" and "roar lions roar" -- we were united and virtually unbeatable.  We were The High. 

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The date for the next CHS All-Class Reunion has been set:  Saturday, August 8, 2020.  We will have a Class of 1968 event the evening before (Friday, August 7, 2020).  So, mark your calendars!

Below is a link from the Washington Post describing our beloved city of Charleston. Thought class members would enjoy this. So much has changed since we graduated in 1968.  (Submitted by Virginia Deitrick Mullinex.)
