The Main Building Girrrrls
These following 4, approximately 40 years old photographs were originally; 2"
x 3" and 3" x 4", smaller than what you get today. MamaPat first had these
commercially enlarged to 4" x 6" prints for better resolution and then scanned
them. Only minor adjustments of the brightness and contrast was made to
enhance these pictures, mainly to reduce the shadows.
Donna Canady, a former classmate of ours, is shown in the these 4 pictures. It
is with great appreciation to Brenda Davis Proctor, also in these pictures,
for obtaining and loaning us these photographs.

Class of 1970's
Group Graduation Picture
Class of 1970's Graduation Ceremonies Picture
Yeah, we know this picture has darkened over the years but
we wanted to post this anyway. We tried enhancing but it
started to be too grainy to use. I'm working with Trudy Suggs
to see if we can at least get the negatives to work with. By
the way, that's Lewis on the stage receiving his diploma. We
believe Steve Warren is the graduate on the left on the first
row, Linda Gillespie might be to Steve's front right, and
maybe John Smith is at the right corner of the picture.
