Up, Up and Away!

It’s been 55 years since the Water Valley High School Class of 1962 graduated, a milestone that was marked over the weekend during a class reunion with activities that spanned three days. On Friday afternoon, the group released 26 balloons to honor their deceased classmates, each balloon containing a name. Water Valley Mayor Larry Hart (right), a member of the class, also reported on a tree that was planted in front of the high school in honor of the class. Class members had voted during their 50th reunion in 2012 to plant a tree as part of their 55th reunion festivities.
