Then and Now
The pic on the left is from page 92 of our
yearbook and according to DC "it
was taken during some kind of a race game 'seat a person from one end of the
room to another end'. I don't recall how the participants were chosen and
paired, but the occasion was one of those high school social activities in
the Student Union Building planned on Saturdays...or was that Sundays?"
Students in the left photo are: first row, l-r; Ann
Meshaw ('72), DC and Mrs.
Williams, Roberta Silver ('72), and our famous
Gary Hunnings. The
three in the back are hard to identify
although the student with glasses
between Williams and Gary looks to be
Jimmy Ledford ('72).
The picture on the right was taken at the wake after
services on June 6, 2009. The owner of this photo is unknown, however, DC
and Ye Ole Webmaster would like to give a big thank you to
sending this photograph.
June 6, 2007 - During my nephew, Dale's,
graduation ceremonies, it did not
take me too long to realize that one of the participants in the program was
Ann Aldridge! She was an Educational Director during our last year of
school. Even though she was not a teacher for any of my classes (as
far as I can remember), I do remember talking with her on a number of
occasions. After 37 years, it was a wonderful delight to see each other
again. Although I was being pulled to do my family duties, I managed
to get her e-mail address for future communications and get a stranger
to snap a picture of us.

With appreciation to Mrs. Crutchfield's daughter, Anne Chastain,
were made for me to pay a visit to Mrs. Crutchfield, one of my many
favorite teachers at NCSD. Mrs. Crutchfield was delighted to receive the
Class of 1970 coffee mug from our Classmates. She also wishes to express
her love to ALL of her students she taught at NCSD.

Pictures of Bashie Crutchfield, 90 years young!
Left picture: former Classmates of 1970, l to r: Marion Parris ('69), Jimmy
('69) and Jeannie Parris ('69). The young lady in the picture on the right is
believed to be Mrs. Crutchfield's niece, Betty Lou Delaughter, who's mother,
Willie May Delaughter, supposedly worked in the office with Mrs. Sheppard, Head
Supervisor of Main Building during our school years.
Thanks to Marion Parris for sharing these pictures.
(These two pictures and paragraphs above was originally posted on the
page and was appropriately moved to this page).
Harold and Patricia Deuel
Going by the Yearbooks, Mr. Deuel joined NCSD in the fall of 1967
as a teacher,
Football Coach, and started the Wrestling Team as Head Coach. Mrs. Patricia
Deuel joined NCSD as a Librarian at Rankin Hall in the fall of 1968 and later as
a Librarian at Upper Scholl during our last year.
After we graduated, Mr. Deuel went on to
officiate Wrestling matches while
still serving as Wrestling Coach at NCSD. After officiating Wrestling Matches
for over 30 years, Mr. Deuel is the only Deaf North Carolinian to do so.
