 Being a GHS majorette from my freshman year thru graduation.  The band trips on the bus and stopping by the WV Drive

Inn on our way home........what fun times.  Mr. Cempella, our band director, was a very special person. I cherish every

fond memory that I have of my high school days and will hold them close to my heart forever.

Memory: My fondest memories are the dances at the hall over the pool room/post office in Elbert.Dancing

 to the music of the of the local boys. (Spichecks and Wadosky). Enjoying the Jitterbug and Polka's showing

 the diversity of our heritages in the coal fields.  We were very blessed to be raised in Gary Hollow

 and I love the way every one has stayed in touch.
