Gentry Class of ‘69 celebrates golden year

The Gentry High School Class of 1969 is about to turn golden. They will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of their graduation along with the 2019 graduating seniors in a special recognition ceremony on May 24.

In addition to the joint observance, the golden group will also host special reunion activities to commemorate the five decades since they first marched across the platform and class members met on Monday to work toward finalizing those plans.
