The photos on this page link to info, photos, etc. about individual class members.
If there is very little on your page, please send photos and stories about things in your life since high school - college, career, military, hobbies, achievements, marriage, children, grandchildren, etc.
Anyone who was ever in the class of '65 is part of "us" and welcome at reunions. The people on this page are class members who are in our senior yearbook and those who were with us much of the way but not our senior year. See the Extras file for people who were in our class in junior high or for a short time in high school.
There is general information at the bottom of the page - including info about the frequently asked question "How many were in our class".
See the Most Wanted List for class members that we don't have contact info for.
~ indicates a class member who is deceased (they are also on the Gone - But Not Forgotten page.)
One question that comes up often at reunions is "how many people were in our class?". That sounds like a simple question but isn't really.
According to our freshman yearbook our class had 89 members.
According to our sophomore yearbook we had 86 members. Billy Burns, Connie Burns, Lloyd Hill, E.L. Kneller, Shirley McCleary, Ruth Randall, Reilly Reed had left; and Mike Champe, Beverly Copple, Ron Romig, Rick Sass were new.
According to our junior yearbook we had 86 members. Kenny McKnight, Billy Miller, Sherry Stephenson, Jack Webb had left; and Larry Caldwell, Connie McClure, Deborah Wells, Janie Wood were new.
According to our senior yearbook we had 86 members: Denny Farrar, Judy Osborne, Deborah Wells, Janie Wood, Dave Worthington had left; Karen Brown, Barbara Dreyer, Janelle Thomas were new and Billy and Connie Burns were back.
Adding the nineteen people who were in our class at one time during Jr. High and High School but not our senior year to the 86 that are in the senior yearbook, and subtracting the twenty-one members known to be deceased, there are 84 people we would like to account for. If anyone has clues that would help find someone on the Most Wanted List or in the Extra file please let me know.
Note: The yearbooks only reflect who was a class member when the yearbook was put together so some were there for a longer or shorter time than it appears.

Trivia:As I was working on the website I noticed that about half the class (44 people) have first names starting with just four different letters: J, L, M and R. I also noticed that 16% of the women (including spouses of class members) at our 50-year reunion were named Linda.
Also, about half the class (43 people) had last names starting with just four different letters: B, C, M, and S.
