This page is devoted to Schoolmates that were members at
some point in time
of the Classmates of 1970. Some Schoolmates advanced to the Class of 1969
after passing the 7th grade in the spring of 1965...famously Marion Parris,
Jean Spence (if there were others, then you really need to come forward). We
remember well two Classmates that skipped...well...advanced to graduate in
1969: Brenda Bray and Brian Brizendine.

According to the NCSD enrollment listing for the 1964-1965 school year, five
Classmates that were in our 7th grade class skipped the 8th grade, in the
fall of 1965, to join the 9th grade's Class of 1969. Below are their last
members of our Class of 1970.
Mary Ann Fowler
The three below were also members of our Class but left NCSD
to pursue other interests.
So here we are, so far, 10 Schoolmates who
Was/Were/Could Be Classmates of 1970.
I, Ye Ole Webmaster, has the distinction that I can say that I
could have graduated with the Class of 1969 OR with the Class of
1971. What happened was that I repeated the first grade in public
school and skipped the 7th grade when I arrived at NCSD. If I did
not repeat the first grade and still skipped the 7th grade, then I would
have graduated with the Class of 1969 as well as possibly being the
youngest student to graduate at NCSD. If I repeated the first grade
and did not skip the 7th grade, then I would have graduated with the
Class of 1971 and still be among the youngest of this Class. So as it turned out, I graduated the year I was
supposed to graduate when I started first grade. Can I say truth is
stranger than fiction?
AWW-SHUCKS! I coulda be a Class of '69er OR '71er!
As time goes on, we'll continue to add other Schoolmates that were
NCSD Class of 1970.
