  • Can you tell me were I can purchase a 1953 yearbook from your school. My e-mail is jjeanette222@hotmail.com Thank you. (Sept 2011)

    I have a parent that graduated in 1949. I have an uncle that graduated in 1953. I enjoyed looking at the annuals you guys have put on your website.
    Does anyone know if there is an avenue to get a annual such as 1953? I understand someone sells them. I am sure a family gave up the annual after a loved alumni deceased. I really would like to surprise my uncle with a 1953 annual.
    My uncle's name is Lacy Pulliam....1953
    My Mom is Wynelle Pulliam Martin...1949
    Thanks... Mark Martin  (Sept 2011)

  • I have been searching the web for info on my mom, Maudie Godsey Frederick. I found where she graduated in 1945. She passed away on Friday, June 25, 2010. My aunt Pernie Godsey Vines, passed away the following Monday, June 28, 2010. I think she graduated in 1943. Pernie was the last surviving child of Richard and Ada Louisa Taylor Godsey.

    Thanks for sharing the information you have found. I wish there were yearbooks for earlier years. Perhaps someone has one. Mom did not that I ever found. She died of smoke inhalation when her home burned.

    My great grandfather was James William Curtis, the first graduate of Winston County High School. I have very little information on him and am trying to figure out the names of his parents and the year he was born. I would appreciate any information you might have in your records.
    I am living in Canada now but I'm hoping to get down to Winston County sometime next year :)
