Welcome to the CPHS Website!  We, former students and teachers of CPHS, have been striving over the years to keep our memories of the good times and good friends we made during our short time at CPHS alive and well. This website is sponsored by the College Park High School 1943-1975 Reunion Committee to make contact and coordination easier, and hopefuly to find lost friends and classmates. We welcome any news about people or events relating to CPHS, and will be happy to present it here. If you have any news or messages, announcements of individual reunions, or anything else you'd like posted, please email us at GeorgiaCPHS@gmail.com, and we will put it under "class news." The more active you are, the better the site will be!!!

We learned facts in American History. We pledged to the American Flag. We prayed in classrooms, ballgames, graduations and special events. We walked, rode bikes and carried piles of books to and from school. Those were the good ole days and I cherish the memories!

So the challenge to us is to pass on to the people around us the memories, the knowledge, the integrity, the patriotism, the responsibilities, the loyalty, the respect, the beliefs, the values, the compassion and the love that we all received and learned over the past 50 years!

And our reminiscing and memories from our 50th Reunion celebration are in our hearts, minds, and here:

The First CPHS

In 1927, before CPHS was on Main Street, it was on the east side between Hawthorne and Temple.  The building was later used as S.R. Young Elementary School.

This information and photo are courtesy of Steve Willingham (Class of 1967) from the 1927 CPHS yearbook "Broadcaster."  Thanks, Steve!!

ANNABELLE -- GRAND LADY OF COLLEGE PARK

The Class of 1964 recently held their 50-year reunion.  Paul Daniels provided a write up giving some history of the Annabelle house: 

At our reunion, lots of "stories" were shared including those about the CPHS campus and what will become of it, along with stories about other "noteworthy" structures in College Park, some no longer there (The Tennessee Corp office on HWY 29 adjacent to Newton Estates) as well as the grand Victorian brick home that still sits on property adjoining College Park High School.  Upon returning home to Hilton Head Island, I came across a handout for "Annabelle", also known as "Palmour House," which I received at an open house some years ago after the property had been restored by the Stokes & Murphy Law Firm.

Brian Marsh sent us the handout, which I found fantastically interesting.  If you'd like to see it, click here.
