Newport High School 50th Reunion, 1957 Class

October 20-21, 2007

We drove to Memphis Friday night and then on into Newport Saturday morning in time for a Convocation at the auditorium of Newport High School. This was the first reunion since the 20th anniversary reunion in 1977

We heard a report from School Superintendent Ronny Brown about the progress of the high school.
