What a great high school
Southside Class of 70!
Thanks to all my well-wishers, Scrappers, Trojans, Nupes Other Fraters and Sorors. It is a blessing to be among the living. One more year to continue praising the Lord for his tender mercy. And so special to be celebrating 50 years since matriculation from South Side High , aka "THE SCRAPPER DEN" I look forward to zooming once again with my Classmates soon. Thanks again everyone. So proud to be a South Side Scrapper.

[02/13/21]   Prayers for Michael Mckinney

Good morning classmates

Our classmates, Jacquelyn McKinney Turner and Brenda McKinney Brothers need our prayers for their brother, Michael. Thank you! Brenda posted the message below yesterday:

This morning I received a phone call that my brother Michael Mckinney had an accident in the early a.m.. This is deeply on our minds. We were able to speak with him, but he's in lots of pain from a dislocated hip. The darkness, inclement weather, and Covid restrictions, do not permit my sister Jacquelyn McKinney Turner, and I to travel to the hospital to be with him at this time. But God!!!!!!! Please pray with our family on his behalf. Praising God right now that he is alive!!!!!

This message received from Tyronda Mitchell, daughter of Andre Williams.

"My dad Andre Williams passed Sept 26 2020 at 10:11. I'm his only child. I would love for the class to show love."
Please send you prayers of comfort and peace to this family during their time of loss.

NOTE: Commercial Appeal shows age for Andre Williams was 59, so don't think he was Class 1970. Still, we are all Scrappers who support and uplift each other in time of need.
