MYERS PARK HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1969
In conjunction with its 50th reunion and inspired by the great examples of earlier classes, the Myers Park High School Class of 1969 undertook as its class reunion project to raise funds for the Myers Park High School Foundation. The 15-person fundraising committee, ably led by Baxter Hayes and Jan Hall Brown, raised roughly $137,400.00. "The Class of 1969 was very generous in support of the Foundation and the students it serves," Baxter said. "Most of the classmates we contacted were more than happy to contribute to an organization that provides direct assistance to motivate and educationally support students whose family economic circumstances are below the federally-established poverty line. The Foundation made it an easy sell, providing encouragement and materials."
