Last week, Bedford Mayor Skip Tharp signed a proclamation honoring the sixth all-class reunion of Susie G. Gibson High School.
Now the Bedford Science and Technology Center (BSTC), Susie G. Gibson High School was built in 1954 as the Bedford Area's segregated black high school. It graduated its first class in 1955 and its last in 1970. It produced a total of 852 graduates during its 16 years.
"We always give credit to our only principal, John I. Jones," said Harriet Hurt, Class of '65.
Ami Watson, Class of '61, recalls meeting Jones some years after graduating.
