Really great website. Thanks for the hard work putting this together. Does anyone know the whereabouts of Arlene Adams and Lonnie Byrd class of '63? Lonnie and I joined the army together after graduation. I had a huge crush on Arlene.

I did not attend Tech but both my parents did and I am trying to locate my birth father. His name is Gerald E Johnson, I am trying to find out his family in formation to help locate him. His mother and fathers name, did he have any brothers and sisters. I would give you my mothers name but she does not want to be contacted. But she was associated with tech she was active in ROTC and graduated in 1955. Thank you, with any help you can give. Sherry Handley, Savannah, TN

Hello Yellowjackets,
The reunion was a success and we wish you all could have been there, but nevertheless we never had a meet and greet planned for this year's reunion. We mingled and socialized with each other during the actual reunion. We are planning to meet again in about 2 years if the Lord says the same. Thanks for inquiring and have a wonderful day!

I agree that Gene be adding to Tech's famous and outstanding students. Also, another one who should be recognized is J. M. Van Eaton, Class of 1956. He has had an amazing career in the music industry playing the drums for many well know celebrities and I believe he is still very active in his music career. There is a lot of information about him online.

I just spent several hours going through my yearbooks and a couple of my sister's (Rita Howard-Class of 1967), remembering so many great memories and great friends whom I really miss. Looking back, there are things I would have said and done differently, but then I might not be the person I am today.
My thoughts and prayers are with those in the military serving our country and their families. I hope all of you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Enjoy your families and loved ones. Give them that extra hug or let them know how much you love them.
Thank you for the many friendships and wonderful memories. I love you guys!

With respect to the article "New History of Tech", please join me in INSISTING that Gene Gill add his name under the caption"Some Prominent Techites" since he apparently has nothing else to do. What about it Yellowjackets? Start buzzing. Who else among us could be more deserving? All those other "Prominent Techites" couldn't have done this for us.

P.S. What is a Techite? Sounds like an insect. Never heard the term in the 50's.

Hello To The YellowJackets, Wow, I can truly say, I had a great time attending Tech High, from 71-73. Those were the days, I mean the good days. Although they called us the worst class Tech ever had, and punish us by not allowing us to have a prom. After graduation, myself and three others we gave ourselves a graduation party at the Old Holiday Inn Rivermont. So you see Class of "73" we still rock. Shout Out To The Class of "1973"

CAN YOU IDENTIFY THESE BOYS?

We've posted a "mystery photo" on the CATCH-ALL page of the website. One of our visitors has asked for help in identifying the 4 boys in the photo. The photo probably dates from around 1938-1945, and was taken in the Hollywood area.

Can you help us?

I want to thank all those who make these annual reunion events possible....those who work so hard in the planning and execution of the event and those who attend!! Tech High was a brief time for each of us, as measured by a calender, but a formative time as measured by when those days came in our lives. Chronos and Kairos I believe would be an appropriate measure. Thank each of you who attend!

Hello All:
Gene Gill has just posted pictures from our 2011 Reunion Mixer, which was held on July 16, 2011.
In order to see these pictures you will need to go to the top of the page and place your mouse over the (Tech High). You will then get a drop-down and you will need to click on (Tech Class Roster). A page of dates will appear then click on any year from 1960 to 1966 and another page will appear. On that page click on the bar close to the top of the page that says 1960-1966 PHOTOS. That will bring you to a page that has the last several years of photos posted. Click on any year that you wish to view.
We can never thank Gene Gill enough for all that he does to make this Website so enjoyable and useful.
