It has been 65 years since the second class of Davie County High School left the campus.

Although those students had been at four schools in Davie County for their ninth and 10th grades, they became one class – and friends – in the 11th grade. Many of the classmates still live in Davie County.

Classmates meet once a month.

“When it started several years ago, we discussed having a set day, time and place to meet,” said Alice Barnette. “Harold Wayne Myers suggested since we were the second class to graduate, that we meet on the second Tuesday.”

Meetings are currently held in the private dining room at Mocksville Family Restaurant.

The class has lost about 40 percent of its members, and Connie Tucker Brinkley keeps classmates notified when one dies. Peggy Wall Dillon takes donations to send a memorial.

“Since we are all over 80 years old, it was decided to have a reunion every year.” That will be on the last Friday in April.
