In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

New Building and Changes to Meridian High School

The picture in the left foreground is the new 9th grade buidling that has been built on the original Meridian High School campus. The picture is taken from a parking area along 23rd avenue.

The MHS 10th grade was moved from Kate Griffin to MHS some years ago. The 8th and 7th grades were also moved to new middle schools throughout the city some years ago. In moving the 9th grade students to MHS, Kate Griffin will be closed as a public school, but will reopen in time to serve a different purpose yet to be decided.

The tennis courts on Poplar Springs Drive (sadly, for those of us on the tennis team in '58) have been removed and the area is simply vacant and grassy at this point. Our shade tree and water fountain were also removed. New tennis courts have been built south of the old baseball and football practice field on 24th avenue.

Lots of changes, but all looks to be painted and kept up well, so we can continue to be proud of the school.
