Welcome, Class of 1969! As we begin our planning for the 45th reunion in 2014, we would like your input. Please comment on the questions below:

  1. Which season do you prefer for our reunion - spring, summer, fall?
  2. Would you like to attend an AHS sporting event? Which sport?
  3. What kind of gathering do you prefer - informal gathering, late afternoon, indoor, outdoor?
  4. Are you willing to assist in contacting other class members to share the reunion details once they are decided?

Thanks for participating in our message forum. We look forward to hearing from you!

Good afternoon, Class of 1969 members.  As we look forward to our 50th AHS Class reunion in 2019, we pause to remember the principal who led our school so seamlessly in the late 1960's.  Benjamin Hurt was an outstanding individual as well as educator. Please consider joining class of 1969 members as we collectively donate in memory of our wonderful principal. 

Benjamin Franklin Hurt, 99, of Crozet, Virginia passed away peacefully on August 11, 2018. He was born October 27, 1918 in the family home on Virginia Street in Farmville, Virginia to James Moses Hurt and Ethel Mae Hubbard Hurt. He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, J.B. and Diane Hurt, his two grandchildren, Sophie and Benjamin Hurt, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Maria A. Hurt, and his siblings, Mattie H. Williams, Lucille H. Widgins, James H. Hurt, Lillian H. Mann, and their spouses. A lifelong educator, Ben F. Hurt served as principal of Albemarle High School from 1954-1984. Prior to that, he served as a teacher, coach and principal at Greenwood High School. He was a member of Crozet Baptist Church, serving as a Deacon, Sunday School teacher and on a variety of committees over the course of 70 years. He was also a member of the Crozet Lions Club, where he served for 70 years. He graduated from Hampden-Sydney with a degree in Latin and earned his Master’s degree in education from the University of Virginia. He served four years in the U.S. Army in Northern Africa and Italy during World War II. He was elected to the Virginia High School League Hall of Fame. Agnor-Hurt Elementary School bears his name as does the drive leading in to Albemarle High School. During his many years as an educator, he enjoyed getting to know every one of his students by name. Visitation will be held from 6-8pm on Wednesday, August 15th at Crozet Baptist Church at 5804 St. George Avenue, Crozet, VA. The funeral service will be held at the church at 11am on Thursday, August 16th. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Crozet Baptist Church at the above address.
