The Dora High School Reunion
of 2003 a Great Success
The Dora High School reunion was a great success with
more attendees than ever before. At last count there were over 130
but the crowd looked much bigger. Bobbye Wade, the Dora High School
Alumni president will have the final count on Monday. The Class
of 53 was honored and had the largest number of classmates represented.
David Uptain earned the honor of "Dora High School Alumni of
the Year". David gave a touching speech and talked about how
his father encouraged him as a child. He learned the lesson from
his father and encouraged his children as well. He urged the attendees
to take a special interest in the young folks coming up now and
to encourage them to reach high. We hope to have an interview with
David in the next few days. See

Dora High School Alumni Reunion by Jilda Watson
did something this past weekend I had never done before….I went
to the Dora High Alumni banquet. And guess what! It was fun! I saw
friends (and even a couple of relatives) that I had not seen in a
long time. I reacquainted myself with folks whom I had gone to school
with, but were in different grades than I. It was a really interesting
group, from all walks of life, all ages yet, we all shared a common
thread, we attended Dora High School.
For those of you who have never attended (and you are legions), you
should come next year. It’s not a class reunion, you don’t
have to lose 10 lbs. you don’t have to dress up, (Rick and I
wore jeans) and you don’t have to stand up and discuss you life!
The food was good, the entertainment, well here’s where I get
just a little prejudiced. The Overalls, the trio that Rick and I,
along with our friend Steve Norris perform with was the entertainment.
I think folks enjoyed us, no one threw tomatoes or booed. Anyway,
next year, I challenge you, to do something you’ve never done
before, attend the DHS Alumni Banquet.
