At the Commencement Exercise in June 1960, Seventy-three high school seniors walked across the stage of the Park View High School auditorium to receive diplomas from their principal, Charles Henry Morgan. With the consolidation of schools in Mecklenburg County this class had the distinction of being the first class to graduate having completed five full years of high school education and with many additional opportunities provided in the school consolidation. Students in Eastern Mecklenburg County joined together from schools at Boydton, Buckhorn, LaCrosse, Palmer Springs and South Hill, made new friends and the new school was born. The memorable evening began with a fun-filed social period spent renewing acquaintances and reminiscing. Many fond memories of those years are very much alive and were shared and enjoyed at the reunion. A memorial service was held for thirteen deceased classmates. Following a very delicious buffet meal, the group was addressed by its Senior Class President. Surprised entertainment from members of the class called the "Dooley Gang" reenacted their singing ability recalling their performance at a PVHS talent show back in 1958. A video composed of old photos, memorabilia, and yearbooks played during the evening bringing back special memories. On display were scrapbooks, along with green and white athletic letter jackets brought by two classmates and even a majorette uniform to add more memories from those special high school days. Additional entertainment was provided by members of the well know "Embers" band along with other musicians with music from those golden days. (Lisa Clary photo)
