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.
Larry, I would like to do a future article on your mother Dorothy Humphrey. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email me. Thanks!
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.
Thanks! So far, I could not find out what the “P” stood for.
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!
Thanks! I did not remember that I did a program with “Finding Your Roots.” Thanks again!
