Welcome W.T. Woodson High School Class Of 1977!
Give a yell...give a yell...give a great substantial yell!
The 30th anniversary of our high school graduation is coming soon. Three decades have passed since we were wearing rugby shirts, making flowers at float parties, dancing at soc hops, working at Roy Rogers, playing or cheering in the Turkey Day football game, meeting at Fritzbe’s, learning to Identify-Predict-Decide-Execute with Bernie Thompson, and waiting in long lines to buy gas at the outrageous price of 55¢ per gallon. I Loved the ‘70s
We deserve a party. We have seen the 1970s become as retro-chic as the 1950s were thirty years ago. Other generations envy us because we wore pastel tuxedo jackets and feathered hair to our senior prom. We can look back proudly at our alma mater, which has built on our legacy to achieve recognition as one of the outstanding high schools in the country. Most important, we made lasting friendships at W.T.W. that it’s time to renew. Reunion Schedule The W.T. Woodson class of ‘77 has planned a great program of activities for the 30th anniversary reunion on Homecoming weekend, October 19-20. Tickets for the football game are available at the gate, and tickets for the Saturday party will be available online through October 13 and at the door by cash purchase only.
