12 Years as Classmates - Gallup High Reunion

E-mail Print PDF
Gallup High graduates held a reunion this summer that included some students from First-grade at Roosevelt Elementary School and stayed with their classmates through their final year at what was then a three-year old building on Boardman Drive known as Gallup High (now the site of Miyamura High School).

Matching the current pictures with the much younger versions is a little more difficult, although surely the old phrase, “You haven’t changed a bit” was heard more than once during the reunion. The Gallup Sun is not responsible for those changes; however, so only cryptic hints have been included in parenthesis behind the student names listed above. Those names were deciphered...

Breakout groups roll out ideas

There were less in attendance Aug. 22 at the Second Street Events Center for the main portion of the Revitalizing Downtown Community Workshop, but the enthusiasm level was just as high for the more than 50 participants. This was to be the culminating day for the ideas and plans of the workshop, after all, and Charlie Deans and his consulting team had done the preliminary work very well on Friday evening.

Deans followed up on Saturday with a one-hour slide show of inspirational ideas from other communities in the state and other areas, raising the hopes of many as he spoke. He discussed a variety of topics designed for this purpose: streets, placemaking...
