  1. My mother Dorothy Humphrey was in the class of 1947.
    I attended WV State college where Earl Lloyd was a star basketball player. I had the honor of meeting him before he passed.


  2. Does anyone know the name of the “P” Club members in this pic? My granddad was class of 48 but there is no graduating pic or basketball team pic. So I was wondering did they have underclassmen in the 47 “P” Club.


  3. My father, Carlton was in this class but is not pictured. He also played on the “Dream Team” with Earl Lloyd. Thank you for posting!
