Superintendent Roger Propst welcomes
alumni, shown with class speakers

Over 300 alumni, family and
friends attended the annual event

Superintendent Propst said organizers learned that
alumni "really want most of the time visiting," indicating
the formal program has continued to be shortened

Former Calhoun native and member of the Calhoun County High School Class of 1940, Melvin Arnold told those attending the annual alumni reunion at Mt. Zion this weekend, "Time is not sacred until it passes over you."

Over 300 former graduates of Calhoun's only high school returned to renew their relationships and recall their glory days of high school. Most of those attending graduated from the now abandoned stone cut building at Grantsville.

Calhoun superintendent of schools Roger Propst (1965) and alumni president Loyd Wright (1955) welcomed the alumni and their families to Calhoun Middle-High School, which replaced the aging structure about 11 years ago.

Speaking for the 60th anniversary class of 1950 was Roscoe Wilson and the 50th anniversary class of 1960, was Carolyn Jones.

Following lunch, alumni spent most of the day visiting and attending a few class reunions on the side.
