Greensboro Senior High School
Class Of 1956
From your website crew of Suzanne, Marie, Alan & Manley. We have noticed all the postings being made in memory of classmates and notes reflecting on those good ole days that were ours at Greensboro Senior High. Even from a distance, like Hawaii, our website gives us that opportunity to stay connected or reconnect with friends. So, it is exciting to us to see our website put to good use. Friends, keep your postings coming.
We wish all a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing many of you at the semi-annual luncheon in November.

GHS CLASS OF '56 SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Each year the class of '56 presents a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving senior at Greensboro/Grimsley. The student is selected by a scholarship committee from the school and the GHS Alumni Association. After awarding this years recipient her award we will have only $5,200 in our alumni fund.
If you would like to see our legacy extended another fifteen to twenty years then we will need your financial support to see this happen. The cost of a college education, whether public or private, is extremely high and it is getting more and more difficult for families to afford it. The scholarship will help a first year student to buy books or necessary incidentals.
Please help your class continue its legacy into the future by making your checks out to: GHS Class of '56 Scholarship Fund and mailing to:

60th Reunion News
In the Piedmont we are slowly springing into Spring. We have had very cool temperatures and lots of rain. But, don’t let that dampen your spirits as we have lots going on for you.
First of all, thanks for visiting the Class of ’56 website. We hope you’ll find the site welcoming and informative.
The big news is that we are putting the first touches on our 60th Reunion in 2016. Tentative plans are to have the reunion the first weekend in June, 2016.
Put that weekend on your calendar so that you can be in Greensboro for what might be our last reunion.
As we aren’t getting any younger, we cannot go back and have a “do over,” but we can reminisce about “the good old days” when life wasn’t so complicated like it is today.
If you are visiting the site for the first time and you were a member of the Class of ’56 at GHS, we invite you to join here. Find you name and follow the instructions. You must join in order to access all of the website.
For those of you who live in the immediate area we hope you’ll join one of our luncheons at First Baptist Church.
