The following day, the classmates attended a luncheon at Pier II and went on an afternoon cruise on the Southern Belle.
The renovated alumni room and foyer were used for the actual event. It took one year of planning and 90 days of renovation by the class to complete.
The Alumni Association presented the Class of 1960 with a commemorative plaque to praise the work they did and to encourage them to continue to “Be Rossville.”
The school officially closed in 1989 with its last class and merged with Lookout Valley to become Ridgeland High School.
The Class of 1960 thanks the mayor of Rossville Johnny Baker, Walker County Commissioner Bebe Heiskell, Rossville Athletic director Stump Martin, 2009 Alumni Association president Sherman Ross, 2010 president Bobby McNabb and Rossville commissioner Teddy Harris for their continuing support in the renovation process leading up to the reunion.
