Remembering Evergreen - Memories Letters



I graduated from Evergreen High in 1950. We were the first class to go to school the full 12 years. We were Seniors for 2 years, 1949 and 1950.

I guess we all remember our beautiful school. It was kept up so neat, clean and nice. We had to…with Mr. Smith. (Ha). Remember the cleaning days at Home Ec. All the floors were mopped and polished by hand (students’ hands). I can still hear the can of Johnson Wax sliding across the floor from one of my friends to another. Of course, some of us could really slam that “yellow can” hard. Martha could almost make it bounce off the walls. Then we would put on woolen socks and shine the floor. I don’t know how any of us didn’t end up at the hospital. THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS.

If the school workshop was still there, I’m sure we could still see planks that popped up when Martha Albritton Johnson and I would play catch on the side of the building. She would pitch so hard; I would just let the ball go by…you could see the planks unnail when the ball would hit. THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS.

I remember Mr. Sam Jeansonne, a teacher, would tell us jokes in French. Of course, for the ones who couldn’t understand French, it was repeated in English, which then made the joke loose its humor. They couldn’t understand what was so funny, but we did. THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS.
