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.

Was in choir with your Brother Larry at CPFB under Gene Martin for several years. You may remember Laura my daughter, she is still teaching school. She has led the youth choir for 30 years at her Church. They just finished their 30 musical play. Others at CPHS, Barney and Benita. Melissa went to Briarwood High School where Snirley worked for 30 years and retired. As for me, 89 come June. God is good. Lawton '54 a lamb now. Stay well and keep a song in your heart.

Happy birthday Dale. Remember when we all (the team) had to go to the dentist in Atlanta, since we were all football players the dentist worked us with no pain shots. The dentist played loud music to cover up tne screams. Ward (Toothless)
