GHS circa 1971

This was Guntersville High School at about the time it was dedicated in 1971. You'll notice that none of the athletic facilities has yet been built.

The current Guntersville High School that is being replaced opened in 1971. Jeff Mims, the maintenance supervisor for the city schools, was going through a file the other day and found the pamphlet from the GHS dedication on October 17, 1971.

Bannie Newman was the superintendent and Bob Neighbors was the principal. Don Ryan was the assistant principal and James Dennis the supervisor of instruction.
