WHS’s 100-year reunion arrives May 26

WHS’s 100-year reunion arrives May 26

From: The Watertown Gazette

One hundred and one years ago, the great citizens of Watertown gathered together with a mass of 141 members of the community and put together enough funds to construct a two-story, rectangular structure that would be known as Watertown High School.

The school, built in 1911, came at a cost of $9,768. Two years after it opened, additional wings were added for more classrooms and a basement held the cafeteria, classrooms and heating system. An auditorium and two additional classrooms were on the top floor.

In 1929, a three story high school was built and the original 1911 building became Watertown Elementary School. The 1929 building housed the high school until 1964, when a third building was constructed. This building is the current home of Watertown High School, which will then transform the current building into Watertown Middle School.

The idea for the 100-year celebration came from WHS principal Jeff Luttrell, who, along with Historic Watertown, has worked diligently with high school seniors, staff and local citizens to make this event the best it could possibly be. A contest was held at the school to design a 100-yar logo, with Micheala Upchurch being named the winning artist.

Plans for the celebration have been underway since last May when the committee was formed, and now, everything is ready to fall into place.

The 100-year reunion will be held Saturday, May 26, beginning at 4 PM. All alumni are invited. Tickets may be purchased directly through WHS or through any of Wilson Bank & Trust’s branches. Tickets are $15 each and seating is limited to 500 individuals. The deadline for ticket sales is Tuesday, May 15.

For additional information on the banquet, contact Watertown High School at (615) 237-3434. Handicap parking will be available.
