A Few Memories from 1949-1950-1951-1952 At Fair Park High School - Shreveport, LA


Wanted to put some of these FPHS pictures
on the web site for our grandchildren to chuckle at,
and hope some of you classmates may also enjoy them.





From my graduation memory booklet:

This orchid was given to me by Charles E. Helfrich on graduation night, May 28, 1952. 
The graduation was held in the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, LA. 
Chuck, Tommy, Ann and I went to the graduation and then the dance at Fort Humbug.

My "gang" consisted of
Ann Pelham, Sylvia Fielder, Mary Jo Moore, Mary Robledo, Emma Jean Humphrey,
Betty Cantebury, Shirley Spinks, Martha Carol Swan, Bobbie Frye

.

Ms. Grace Congdon - Our Music Director

Ms. Barlow - My Home Economics Teacher. I said "darn" in class one day -she chastised me with "nice ladies do not use such language."
