These following 4, approximately 40 years old photographs were originally; 2" x 3" and 3" x 4", smaller than what you get today. MamaPat first had these commercially enlarged to 4" x 6" prints for better resolution and then scanned them. Only minor adjustments of the brightness and contrast was made to enhance these pictures, mainly to reduce the shadows.

Donna Canady, a former classmate of ours, is shown in the these 4 pictures. It is with great appreciation to Brenda Davis Proctor, also in these pictures, for obtaining and loaning us these photographs.

Class Officers during the 1967-1968 School Years
Originally posted in the Mystery Page, a member of our Debris team discovered that this picture
was also printed in the 1968 Yearbook indicating that these were the Class Officers during our
Sophomore year. From left to right: Steve Warren, President; Jimmy Gibbs, VP; Donnie Crump,
Secretary; Richard Glover and Brenda Bray, Treasurers (Brenda, originally a member of our Class
skipped our Junior year and joined the Class of 1969 in the fall of 1968). Picture courtesy of
Richard Glover.

                               Campaigning During Mock Elections
     In November of 1968, High School students participated in mock elections using actual voting
   forms supplied by voting officers of Morganton/Burke County. The results of our votes predicted
                 the actual outcomes of the congressional district, state, and national elections.

                                Class of 1970's Group Graduation Picture                                                

                     Class of 1970's Graduation Ceremonies Picture
                     Many Thanks to Trudy Suggs for this Picture!
                          Yeah, we know this picture has darkened over the years but
                            we wanted to post this anyway. We tried enhancing but it
                          started to be too grainy to use. I'm working with Trudy Suggs
                           to see if we can at least get the negatives to work with. By
                          the way, that's Lewis on the stage receiving his diploma. We
                           believe Steve Warren is the graduate on the left on the first
                              row, Linda Gillespie might be to Steve's front right, and
                                maybe John Smith is at the right corner of the picture.

                                  Class of 1970's Farewell Picture

                                      NCSD Students at Gallaudet
This picture is believed to be taken in '70-'71; first row, L-R: Dee Clanton ('69), Lewis Suggs, John Smith, and Ricky Stuckey ('66). Second row: Mary Beth Ethridge, Carolyn Shaffner ('68), Barbara Morton ('69), Richard Glover, and Rachel Stone ('68). Back row: Ricky Matsen ('65), Mary Gibbs ('67), Jimmy Gibbs, Mary Fowler Swinney ('69), Jean Spence Parris ('69), and Marion Parris ('69). Missing in this picture is Garrett Walker ('65) who was pretty much indisposed of at the time. Thanks to John Smith for identifying the '65 and '66 grads. Also thanks to two anonymous website viewers, one for identifying Carolyn Shaffner and the second for verifying that she graduated from NCSD in 1968.
