Ben L Smith High School
Class Of 1968

Linda Elkins Stone, age 73, went to be with her parents, Ruth and Howard, and her Lord and Savior on September 29. In lieu of a funeral, Linda requested that donations be sent to Hospice of the Piedmont 1801 Westchester Dr. High Point, NC 27262, and that all her friends go out and have a drink in her memory!

        55th Class Reunion



In putting together the 55th Reunion we are running into many challenges /obstacles that were unforeseen.  At this late date, we have found that it is difficult to book a venue, a caterer plus all of the other things that need to be brought together for a successful event.  In addition, due to the late date many of the bookings require 50% down and are non-refundable.  I am sure all of you would agree that the last thing we want to do is spend money and then lose it due to lack of interest.

Therefore, we are now considering different dates, possibly moving forward to the first quarter of 2024 which gives us ample time to secure a venue and a caterer. 

In order to move any of this forward and select the proper venue, it is imperative that I have a good count of the classmates who are interested in a 55th Year Reunion and would plan to attend the event.  Please contact me ASAP if you feel we should move forward with the planning phase and if so, how many would attend with you.  Plus, there are classmates who do not follow the forum and / or we have no email address or street address.  Please reach out to other classmates who may fall into this classification.

So far I have heard from 11 classmates. 

Please try and respond by August 7.

I have set up a new email address specifically for the reunion.  This is a change from the address originally posted.  I can be reached at the following email address:


Bobby Wood

We had a delightful lunch at Stamey's Barbeque on Monday, August 2, 2021 to catch up with classmates.  In attendance were Bud Parrish, Debbie Ingold Parrish, Wayne Alley, Phyllis Tew Alley, John Kelly and his wife, Cathy, Ron Whittle, Bill Baldwin, Patty Baysinger Wagner, Jerry Jones, Bobby Wood, Ken Melton, Kerry Trent and Rick Mooney.

Photographs from our 50th reunion have been posted in the "50th Reunion" page located on the left side of this page.
