Welcome Classmates

Welcome to the Tupelo High Class Of 1970 web site. Even if you weren't able to attend or were not interested in attending our 50th Reunion, I think you'll find this website can be like a "virtual reunion." Take a few minutes to learn your way around. Bookmark this page and check back often because the content will be updated frequently.


Classmates:  A second event has been added to our reunion schedule.  We have reserved the clubhouse at Tupelo National Golf Course (formerly Big Oaks Golf Club) for Friday night, August 13, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  To minimize the cost, we ask that you bring a covered dish or tailgate favorite, and we will provide water and eating gear. Due to funds left over from a previous reunion, there will be no charge. But we will have a basket you can drop in a donation of any amount to help with the water, etc.

Due to space limitation at the Bus Stop, "Wishbone" will be playing at the Friday night event only starting around 7:30. 

The deadline to register for the Saturday night event at The Bus Stop is Saturday, July 24th. You will need to pay $15 per person to cover the cost of the catered meal.  I can send you a registration form to complete, specifying a meal choice (chicken or pulled pork).  If you need a registration form, please contact me at An announcement on the Class website will provide additional details about the Saturday night event.

50 Year Class Reunion

The pandemic has caused us to reschedule our 50th Reunion yet again. The new date is Saturday, August 14 from 5 to 9 PM. The location will still be the Bus Station, and if you have already registered, there is nothing more you need to do. If you have not yet registered, you may still send your registration form with your entree selection (BBQ or chicken) and $15 to Hank Barger at 600 Silver Chase Drive, Keller, TX 76248.  Let Hank know if you need a registration form.  (The Reunion at the "Bus Stop" is BYOB).

If anyone would like to video our reunion, let Chuck Johnson know.  Then the video could be shared for classmates that are not able to attend. i.e. Facebook Live.

Stay tuned for an announcement of a possible Friday night event in addition to the main event on Saturday night.



This website has been running "ad-free" since it was started in 2010.  Rather than continuing to pay an annual fee of $165, we have decided to start letting them run an occasional advertisement on the website, thus eliminating the annual fee altogether. We hope you will not find those ads too obnoxious.

One other thing.  We have also been paying a separate annual fee to keep the domain name ( each year, and we will continue doing so. As long as we continue renewing the domain name, you will sign in with that web address.  However. starting in May, the "address bar" at the top of you browser will show a change to "" to allow us to come under their "Secure Certificate." As always, only registered users (your classmates) are able to view the content on the webisite beyond the Home Page.  Our website has always been as secure as our individual passwords to the site. This change will not affect how you navigate through the website.


Look Who's Been Found:

Stan Byrd found this photo on the Web from a front page story in The Paw Print, the high school newspaper of McNairy County High School in Tennessee.  In case you're having trouble recognizing this old gentleman, he is our own Mickey Murphy, now in his 45th year as an educator and the new principal at MCHS.  The accompanying story has been posted with the picture in the "Administration and Faculty" gallery of Photos Worth Seeing.
