Cooper High School
Class Of 1969

It's in the Books!

Our 50th has come and gone with, if I say so myself, roaring success - and all of that is due to YOU! None of it would have been possible had you not been there, therefore, many thanks to all who were able to attend! To those of you who weren't you were missed & we hope you will make the next one (more info to follow). Keep your info updated at all times so that no one misses out. We will be keeping this website site, open (thanks to your generous contributions) as well as our Facebook page, Cooper HIgh School Class of 1969. The reunion committee heard from many of you that waiting 10 years might be a tad too long - so we will look into regrouping in 5 (2024!), with a shortened schedule at more than likely the same time of year. Again thanks to your contributions and the willingness of our vendors to work with us, Gary Shahan has reported that we have some good seed money to start planning the next reunion - approximately $3000!!! On behalf of the entire Reunion Committee, thank you for supporting us and all Seniors '69. We had a blast meeting and putting everything together. Don't hesitate to let us know what you liked, what was lacking, & what you'd like to see next time! Until then....

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity. While we all had the very best time at our 40th, it is encouraging to know that through the generosity of our class members, we are able to give back. Blessings to each and every one of you.

This is your hard-working committee after happy hour. Oops-we mean after a strategy session. Well we do need an updated photo! This was before the 40th!

Privacy and your profile: We like this service (, because they don't ever release your information or try to sell you something. There are some things to know about whether you want Google and the other search indexes to pick up your information from your profile or not. Read the info under Privacy Concerns to the left, then review your profile to make sure you have the right settings to suit you.

Would you like to send a few bucks to the committee to keep this site going? The ClassCreator folks have been great; this site is being used by Seniors 1968, 1969, AHS 1969 and others. We have free status but would like to support their efforts until the ...  [ahem] fiftieth. It's only $97 a year to keep it going (discounts applicable), so $5-$20 would go a long way. Contributions will be accepted at any time. 







My heartfelt thanks for the generous donation to The Whit Cammack Foundation. I was deeply moved by such a kind gesture. Together, we make a difference. I wish, for everyone, joy and bountiful blessings. Thank you for all of those precious, unforgettable and irreplaceable moments that we shared in the past, and for all of those to come.
