Porter-Gaud School Class of 1969 – Looking Back at Our Past

You find the most unexpected treasures when you aren’t even looking.

My first indication, when I found The Polygon 1969 Porter-Guad School Yearbook was, why would anyone throw this away?  Had someone passed away?  Did they not want to think back on the past?  So many questions, ran through my mind.  In the end, I saw a 100 plus page look at Charleston’s history.

We imagine many of these faces still reside and have been contributing members of the community and for that we thank you.  As we thumbed through the pages, we were astonished at the level of education of the faculty, the reminders of youth and the trends of almost 50 years ago, that we look back upon now fondly.

Take a seat and let us walk you through a moment 47 year ago, when a ground of young adults had their whole lives to look forward to.  From the hair, to the sense of camaraderie, Porter-Gaud reminds us that school is a valued part of our lives.

Maybe you might see a familiar face or two along the way.
