Hi Ken: You amaze me with this web-site and how well together it is, thank you! Just wanted to remind you that I now have a very large school, 38 classrooms large Auditorium all sitting on 15 acres of land. The trees are absolutely old over 100 years and are simply beautiful. Of course we don't permit any drinking on the land. However, any wholesome activity including church service we would welcome, if the dates are agreeable. My very best to Sharon and Love to you both! Rhonda 


Hi Classmates:

We are already in March of 2013 most of us have reached or will be soon the ripe age of 65 years old!

We are blessed to be living at a time of technology of this kind, and only God knowes the giant leaps it will take in the future. I'm so appreciative of Ken Solomon and all our other classmates who have fostered such a marvelous idea as this website. Our generation must not allow our age to comsume us with depressed and sorrowful thoughts. We are alive and we should act like it! I know all of us may not be where we want to be economically but that is not an excuse to slump into a miserable state. Do something, create, volunteer, have a party invite friends over, join a church, a club, come on the website and say what ever you want to say, but we are not alone! That is what I believe Ken is trying so hard to tell us there are many of us still around, Thank God!

I met a former classmate a few months back we use to call him "Woote" he married my dear friend our friend the late Laverne Doe (beautiful Laverne) well we were really glade to see each other, I asked my husband who was with me to please understand we go way back, as Woote and I embraced. we talked and he told me his "Sugar" was really high and he was not doing as well as he would like. I told him about the website and he was interested but said he didn't have or do computers. This has been the response of two others I've met. Well I want all in Jacksonville to know we will be offering adult computer classes on our campus complex. 4330 Pearce Street. The Now Mt. Sinai Mary M. Bethune Complex. Please all my classmates in Jacksonville feel free to get information attend the class. Also make plans to attend our dedication Memorial Week end,

May 24, 25, 26, people are coming from all over.  Bethune-Cookman University is participating and presentig a portrait of Dr. Mary Bethune to me, we plan to have a parade and march to the school, will post an official flyer soon!

That's about it! Love you all and May You experience new heights and new realities.

God's Love always abides!

Hi, Ken,

Thank you so much for steering me in the right direction regarding getting back on this great website. Thanks to you and my old buddy Claryce, we are able to stay in touch with one another throughout the country. This is truly a blessing. If it's God's will, I hope to see you and our classmates at the "Reunion." Take care and God bless you.

Hi Classmates

If you have not done so already, please take the opportunity to update your profile. I suggest that you start with going to MEMBER FUNCTIONS and click on Notify Me. Select the first column (Immediately)  for all functions. I expect that we will be sharing a lot more in the coming months and updating your profile will keep you up to date on what is going on.

I also suggest that you try to share recent photos of yourself, for obvious reasons. If you are having any problem with updating or adding pictures to your profile, please contact me or any member of the webcrew.

We can help.

There will be no traditional viewing and funeral services for James Pridgen. I spoke with a staff member of the servicing funeral home. I was informed that plans were be made to lay him to rest at Jacksonville National Cemetery on Monday September 15, 2014. The time has yet to be confirmed. I will check again for the time.

I recall a few years ago when I contacted Ralph for the first time since graduation & we had amazing dialogue for nearly four hours. As a results of that spirits conversation it inspired me more deeply to acknowledge our blessings daily & to share in the light of caring. Ralph & I covered some interesting times from the old & enjoyed our connection righteously. So, I offer to all, when the moment arise, respond & extend thanks with grace & peace in your HEART. OK?. My list is growing & so rich in the spirts.
