School Story:

After graduation from CPHS, went to work with the College Park Fire Departent and spent the next 30 years in school after school from Florida to Indiana.We were required to update our fire surppression methods year after year. Most people thought we just sit around I thought that to, boy did I learn. I tell people, man, don't mention school to me in any form except Sunday School, that I love. The People, Teachers and stories I met and heard would fill a book. My main study book now is the Wookworker Magazine I receive every Month just love it. Now each day is a new page in my education it keeps going on wheather I like it or not. Last year was a sad one for me-had to drop out of choir after 55 years Standing for long periods became a real problem. My favorite anthem "My Eternal King" Did some work on Ms Ruth Barron's home, you 1954 grads will remember her. Will add from time to time with whats left of my memory.

List the names of any of your siblings or other relatives who attended CPHS.

Well Charley you back with the team again,  man it's going to be tough to make that starting team with players like Charley already there.  With Coach Badgett you made the starting team each week.  Will see you when the games over.   Put in a good word for me.  Ward
