Favorite Memory of 1964 to 1968:

It was all good times but I remember Glenda Gaddy (Graf) and I got a book of passes from the office saying Mr. Capps sent us to get them. We wrote ourselves out of classes and back in all the time,sometimes we would go to Hawkins Cafe to eat lunch. I remember when gas was 25 cents a gallon, everyone pitched in a quarter and we would cruise around before and after school.

Did you attend any other high school?

No, my mother went to Benton and all three of my children graduated from Benton. Southender all the way. I tried to move to the north end for about two months when I was about 21, I couldn't stand it and moved back. I live about two blocks from Benton, I can hear the intercom system for the football games in the fall.
