Delmar alumni meet to note class of 1959
To celebrate the 60th year of graduation, the Class of 1959 hosted an all-school reunion on June 8 at Chisum Middle School.
Former Midway ISD and Delmar ISD students, spouses and friends gathered for an afternoon and evening of visiting and renewing acquaintances. Approximately 100 were in attendance for the event. Burgerland Food Truck/Trailer sold hamburgers, fries and ice tea to those who chose to purchase a meal. Desserts were provided by several former students.
Students from the classes of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s attended. Delmar ISD consolidated with Chisum ISD in 1985.
Gift cards were given for traveling the furthest and for being graduated the longest. Jerry Don Satcher, who graduated in 1966, traveled from LaPorte, Texas, and won the prize for traveling the furthest. A gift card for being graduated the longest was given to a gentleman who had graduated in the 1940s from Midway ISD, which is what Delmar was called before a new school was built on Highway 19/24, close to the Howland/Broadway turnoff. The move to that new Delmar ISD school building occurred at the beginning of the 1949/50 school year.
The four graduates from the Class of 1959 who were in attendance were John David Bowman from Dike, Texas, Dale Wayne Loggins, Annie Woodby Perry and Robbie Wilson White, all from Paris, Texas.
