Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Visiting The Past At SFXA

Auditorium door to the right and looking out towards Crawford Street entrance.

Writings on the wall made by donors to the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation in the tunnels.

Ina standing on the upper court looking at the children playing hide and seek. Notice the grass and trees now that have been planted.

The incinerated is crumbling.

A handicapped ramp has been constructed for those who can't take the steps.

About two weeks ago Ina Lott Whittington (Class of 1959) and I went to our Alma Mater (SFXA), now the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation, to look for some material/pictures for our "50" Class Reunion. While there I took some digital pictures around the school yard. Here we are on the lower court by the O'Beirne Gym. The corner classroom seen used to be the first grade and is now used for ballroom dancing. Jim Frechette comes twice a month to teach classes. He is a professional dancer and has a studio called, Applause Dance Factory in Jackson, MS. I attend these classes every once in awhile. Going back to the old school really brings on a flood of good and happy memories of days gone by.
