Down Memory Lane

The date was September 1, in Chattanooga,Tennessee. The temperature was 88 degrees and it was the first day of school in Hamilton County. Kirkman High school located downtown on Chestnut Street also was having it's first day of school.

At 8:00 am, the scene was kind of chaotic with students hurrying through the doors to beat the bell from ringing, not wanting to be tardy. Two Students were raising the American flag outside and inside the classes were starting to settle in for what was to be the senior class's first day of the final year at Kirkman.

Walking down the halls a student running late hurrying to class. The doors being closed as you walk by each classroom you could see the teachers starting their homeroom class by calling the roll. Some students with their head on their desk trying to get awake and some with their hands up wanting to asking a question.

After homeroom chaos again as the students leaving Home room starting their day of other classes. You could hear lockers opening and closing. Students laughing and cutting up on their way to the next class.

Later on in the day after school you could walk by some classes and clubs were starting to form for the year. You walk around back of school and student athletes were running or you could hear the sound of cheerleaders practicing.

Ah! it had finally arrived, your senior year. You were now the king of school and ready to take it on, what ever life brought you. Bring on the freshmen, the sophomores, even the juniors because you now ruled.

Little did we know, at the time, we were all becoming a family. A bond that would last us for the rest of our lives. We would be Kirkman  High school's class . Our colors would be gold and black and our mascot would be the Golden Hawk.

Some of us would become friends for life and some would go our different ways to all parts of the earth. Some would get married and maybe father or mother a future President, Governor, Mayor, Minister or some world Leader. Some would go in the Military to serve our country and some would die..


Alma Mater

Where old Lookouts' lofty top

Meets the Southern Blue.

Proudly stands our Alma Mater

Kirkman, grand, and true.

Chorus

Lift the chorus

Speed it onward

Upward to the sky.

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,

Hail: All hail, Tech High

Down among the busy humming

of the bustling town.

Outlined' against the hill of cameron

Proudly wears her crown

Chorus

Lift the chorus

Speed it onward

Upward to the sky.

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,

Hail: All hail, Tech High


ANNOUNCEMENTS

Fellow Hawks,
In 1965, several students attened a TI convention in Memphis. Jeanne McCardell, me and 5 or 6 other students took a bus to Graceland. Elvis' uncle let us inside the gates and someone took pictures of us on the front porch of Graceland and on the lions. When we were waiting at the bus stop to go back to the hotel, a limousine left Graceland with Vernon Presley in it.
I'm looking for the person that has the pictures, took the pictures or knows who may have. I would really like a copy of them. I still have the rocks, sticks and pinecones I picked up in Elvis' yard that day and a picture to go along with them would be great. Whatever expense is getting them copies and mailed, I will be happy be pay.
Thanks, Phyllis Marlowe (Hudson) Class of 1966
