My mother graduated from Alva HS in 1931.In her personal effects, I have come across a rather complete set of graduation materials (announcements, commencement calendar, class programs, etc.), including two issues of "The Jackrabbit" (the school newspaper?): Vol 13, No. 12 (3 Apr 1930), and Vol. 14, No. 14 (15 May 1931; "Senior Edition").
I'd be happy to do look-ups in these materials for anyone.My GenForum notification has not worked for about 10 months so please contact me by email at .
Just as a teaser, I'll paste in the "Class Roll" of 69 names below.It's rather dense; you can use the "Find" function on your web browser to search for a surname.
