THANK YOU ALL for your support, attendance, or simply spreading the word. Our recent reunion was a tremendous success. We truly have a special ENERGY that we share. This was NOT "just a CLASS reunion"---nope. This was, in fact, a true "FAMILY REUNION" and it felt as such. If you missed it, please know that your family MISSED YOU.

*** Special Thanks to DANA COOPER ('88) ***
Dana printed and mounted the large poster boards with photos of our 1988 Commencement and the great shot of us clownin' on the track for our yearbook group shot.
She also printed all those FUN blue and gold signs you see everybody holding in the countless photos. The signs worked out great and proved to be loads of fun. They added a special lasting impression/signature to all those photos. We shall enjoy and look back at them for years.
THANK YOU, Dana!!!! We love you!!!!

Additional Thanks Go Out To:

  • Tomika Woods for all the hard work, paying for printing, DJ booking, setting up, collecting money, flying in from Texas, and more.
  • Tasha (Webber) Patterson for the great balloons, communication, great suggestion about "WELL PRESERVED Since 1988", motivating Lathan to design the shirts, driving up from Chicago, and more.
  • Marlo Thomas for all the help with set up, the old school days photos, and more.
  • Necole Haskins-Montford for LEADING the Zumba Fundraiser event and coming in from Atlanta.
  • Adrienne Mitchell for spreading the word and making the LONG TRIP from South Korea.
  • LaShawn Hickman for all the help with set up, spreading the word, and more.

There were certainly wonderful contributions made by all. Even if you only helped by telling others about the reunion, please understand how much that was appreciated---BIG HELP, indeed. In fact, we all should CONTINUE to spread the word, please. We only have about 130 "family members" in our Facebook group and on our e-list. There is plenty of room to expand that. Let's keep "finding" more 88 FAM and adding them to our FB group.

NOTE:
If were not able to attend, please know that YOU were missed greatly. We hope you have been enjoying a few of the photos posted on our FB group so far...and enjoyed a glimpse of what you missed. :)
