Class of ‘48 kicks off reunion season in Martin County

STANTON - The Stanton High School Class of 1948 graduated May 13, 1948, and this year, on May 10, the class celebrated its 69th Class Reunion at the Big Spring Country Club.

A few facts regarding this class: School consolidations in the late 1930s and early 1940s resulted in closing some rural schools, so this class consisted of Stanton students as well as those bussed into Stanton from nearby farm communities of Courtney, Tarzan, Lenorah and Lomax.
