Prior to attending South Side, many of us attended Lincoln Jr. High. How fortunate we were to have extraordinary and caring teachers like Mrs. Joyce M. Blackmon and Mr. Kenneth O. Cole. Both distinguished themselves as leaders in their latter positions at MLGW. So much so that both have MLGW buildings named in their honor.


Heartfelt condolences to classmate Carl Taylor, Sr. whose son passed away on September 16, 2023. Services were held on 10/7/23. Please extend your prayers and thoughts to the Taylor family during this most difficult time.


For the Senior Scrappers!
