New Kid on the Block
Jake Phillips arrived on May 22, 2003 to two of Dora High School's former classmates. The father is Scott Phillips and the mother is Kim (Fowler) Phillips. His name is Jacob Cade Phillips and he was 9lbs and 1 oz. at birth. This picture is now and he is almost 2 months old and weighs about 16 lbs now. Scott used to play basketball and Kim used to play softball for the school they graduated in 1987.
DoraHighSchool.com One Year Old by Rick Watson
Time flies when you're having fun. I was doing some site maintenance and realized that it was first published July 15th 2002. We've learned a lot in a year. Looking back at earlier pages, many were badly designed, but thanks to those who have contributed stories, pictures, and interviews the content, I think, has been consistently good and we've had over 27,300 hits as of today.
Through my interaction with you, the alumni of Dora High School, I have learned a great deal about our little corner of the world. I learned about Mary McGinnis, and Ms. Dorothy Ellison, about Faye Bobo and what it was like driving a school bus in the 60's. I saw our community come together and cheer our football team to the best season in recent memory. I grieved along with you over the deaths of

Courtney Ellis, Reverend Rickey Peterson, Pete Troupe, Bo Cashman, Rhonda Weldon, Liz Burkes and the others alumni who passed on since we began publication.
Someone asked me recently: "what to you hope to accomplish with the website?" I only hope that we can pull our community closer together... I hope I can continue to provide a place where people far and near can keep up with what's happening in our community....and occasionally put a smile on someone's face.
I'd love to have more pictures both old and new of our alumni. I'd love for people to think of the website and send me notes when alumni get married, when they pass away, when they have children and grandchildren, when they have something they want to share. I want to be a part of something in which we can all be proud.
I wanted to give special thanks to Nat Self for his continuing story "The Place That We Call Home"; to Asa Faith Bobo Randolph for writing and promoting the website; to Lacy Barnett who wrote a great article for the site and sends me tidbits and ideas for stories; to Bobbye Wade for her help and support; and to Joe Moon who had covered Dora High School Baseball for the site; and to the countless other who have helped.
I especially want to thank my wife Jilda who has worked hard writing, taking pictures, promoting the site, and being understanding when I spend countless hours on this computer.
Happy Birthday www.dorahighschool.com and hopefully we will have many more birthdays.
