PHILLIPS HIGH SCHOOL
GRADUATING CLASS OF 1967
CELEBRATES 40 YEARS
Saturday, June 9, 2007, was a glorious day for the members
of Phillips High School Class of 1967. It was a day of joy,
happiness, and remembrance as they reunited at their alma mater
to meet, greet and enjoy “A Walk Down Memory Lane.”
More than forty students enjoyed the fun-filled 2-hour event
that included a complete indoor and outdoor tour of the school,
reminiscing and snacking on hors d’oeuvres. A few alumni got
the opportunity to become children again as they ran and played
on the floor of the gymnasium.
Later that evening approximately eighty-five students, former
instructors and friends gathered at Stacks Restaurant in
Tarboro, NC where they enjoyed a dinner buffet, introductions,
memorial tributes and a reunion address delivered by Mrs.
Nellie Hunter, Retired Educator at Phillips.
A photographer was present throughout the evening for
individual and group photos as well as a DJ who provided a
variety of music as they danced the night away.
Throughout the evening seven drawings were held and the
winners were happy to receive such lovely gifts. In addition to
the traditional pen, pencil and paper souvenirs, each individual
received a goody bag filled with information on life-long learning,
health education, healthy eating, recipe books on healthy
cooking and a Graduating Class Collage.
The reunion festivities culminated on Sunday, June 10, 2007,
as classmates gathered for worship at New Hope Missionary
Baptist Church in the Dunbar Community of Battleboro to hear
an inspiring message by Pastor Samuel Clemons, Jr.
...Surely! “Memories do last forever”…

REMEMBERING OUR DEAR CLASSMATES WE HAVE LOST FROM THE CLASS OF 1967
"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all".
