Very good pages. Made me stop and think of the fun we had following
in such great foot steps. To all the classes here and staff. Memories
will never be lost, for we are strong. We are Tigers.
Peggy & Pat this website is great! Peggy, I especially appreciate
you keeping all of us (especially me) up to date on all the people
from my past. Since moving South it has been "homesickitis!" Thanks
again and keep up the good job!
Great job on this website (class of 1977)
Peggy, I'm so glad I found this site. I have really enjoyed looking
at the pictures and reading the old newspaper articles. Thanks.
Hadn't visited your web site in a while. Really enjoyed your pictures
of the 66/67 reunion. Several of you I knew when you were little
kids so it was nice to see the grown up version! Keep up the great
Class of 1990. I guess Wills Point began a change in the 80's.
Although I only spent 8 years in the area, she holds my fondest
of memories. May I get to visit you often Wills Point. God Bless
You ... Merry Christmas, Lon
Merry Christmas Everyone, hope everyone has a safe holiday season!
Fantastic site. You all have done a wonderful job and all the
hard work really shows. Sure like all the photos. I love seeing
all the people still "back at home". Wills Point will always be
home. Thanks for taking such good care of it. Wills Point was
the best place to be in the 50's, 60's. Wouldn't have traded my
time there for anything and you are keeping those memories alive
for so many. Class of 64.
I really like your website, great job collecting the photos. I
will tell my dad about the site, he's from the Class of '66, and
was #82 on the State Champs football team.
Very nice site...I never knew where Wills Point was even though
we played you (Hughes Springs High School) in basketball playoffs
at the Pit at North Texas University in 70 or 71. Hughes Springs
won State in 2AA in 71...basketbakk was their only claim to fame
in those days but they went to Regional at Denton for 5 years
in a row and won in 71 and 72 (lost in state playoffs) After looking
over your site I had no idea that Wills Point played football
so well in the 60's also. If anyone remembers the little white
haired boy on the 71 basketball team , please email me. Hope you
all have some great reunions this year. Ps: Don't guess I would
have ever known where Wills Point was at had we not moved to Forney
last year from Paul Pewitt. I am blind from cancer and don't get
out a lot but I have a son who plays on the 6th grade Jack Rabbit
team...he's little like I used to be but very atletic...he even
played baseball this past year with a couple of boys who stayed
with their grand parents in Wills Point...we would have moved
there but it was just a little too far for my wife to drive into
You all take care,
I enjoyed the site.

I just want to let my Mom (Peggy Vinson Baird) know how much I
admire her. She has worked very hard on all the projects that
concern this web site, and other community activites with WPHS.
My mom has been my rock for the last two years. What a wonderful
mom I have been blessed with. And what a wonderful GG my girls
have been blessed with. If you have ever had the pleasure to know
her, you are a very lucky person. I LOVE YOU MOM!

Great job on your website. I am Mike Smith's (class of 1967) sister,
Debbie Jo. I loved the photo gallery. I remember so many of you
guys with such fondness.
I would just like to compliment you on your wonderful website.
I ran across it by accident and have come back to visit several
times. Loved the old photos....'remember these'. My sisters and
I attended Wills Point schools for many years. Pam Reid - 1969,
Debbie Reid - 1974 and Patty Reid - 1977. Your website really
brought back some wonderful memories....I sent a link to both
my sisters. I'm sure they'll love it too.
Patty Reid Cooper
Unbeknownst to me, fact of this link was sent recently as a total
surprise. I knew this time and place was unique but hey here's
confirmation. I've been out of the loop in like forever but have
arrived at that time when I would welcome any and all updates,
info, and invitations. Really. What can I say? it's been a long
time. Jerry, Mike, Tom, Butch, or Linda - are any of you out there?
Are there any up coming 'not-to-miss' events? Keep me posted,
Class of 1968 ruled ( but didn't they all).
This is GREAT! It is a TREASURE CHEST OF WONDERFUL MEMORIES. THANKS
for all the work.
Roy Deen's sister, Susie, Class of 1960
Well, I finally made the time to browse through the 65/66 website
and it is really impressive. Somebody has put lots of love and
effort into this. You can really be proud. It is good for everyone
who loves W.P. This brought back some of the best memories I have.
Be sure to tell whoever did this how much I enjoyed it. I'm sure
everyone feels the same way.
The message above is from my cousin Johnice Cotten Waddle, and
this is what she had to say about our class site. I told her that
Peggy and Pat are the caretakers of this site, although many people
have contributed new and old pictures to the website. I just wanted
to share with everyone how she felt about the site. Again, thanks
to Peggy and Pat
Great website. What memories... would love to hear from old friends
and classmates. I teach GED to adults in Gilmer.
Pam (Chitty) Minton
Thank you for including Billy Don in the memorial page. He loved
this town and never wanted to live any where else.Our two children
are members of the Class of '87 and '91 and our oldest grandchild
Keith is a member of the class of '07.Until his death Billy Don
had season tickets to the Tiger football games.
Everyone was great at the homecoming/dedication for Coach Davis.
If I missed you, Please email or call. I would love to hear from
you. You were all so special to me. Remember our baseball team
also went as far as they could go in the state playoffs that school
year. What fantastic athletes Wills Point turned out!! thanks
again--Coach Boozer PH: 903--832-6324 or email..I live in Texarkana,
TX. & retired after 39 yrs.
Hope I am not intruding. However, want all who have access to
this web page to know how proud Ken's graduating class 1956 is
of Ken and his accomplishments. I had the pleasure of being a
classmate of Ken; a class with about twice as many guys as gals.
I can remember when we voted on our Senior Class Trip, and guess
where we went? To a Dude Ranch. When you are outnumbered, you
don't get to go to Padre Island! Ken grew up in this sleepy little
town of Wills Point, not much to do but obey your parents, growing
up with your friends, working hard,and getting by. We knew if
we got into trouble, someone would tell our parents and our teachers!
We all had fun and have remained friends down through the years.
And, our numbers,small to being with,have decreased with passing
of time. Thanks to each of you for making this a truly meaningful,
wonderful and memorable event for Coach. Yes, it was long overdue!
And, those of you who worked so hard getting this together are
the ones who made it happen. Thank you for allowing my class AND
ME to be a small part in your activities. Our guys who played
with Ken back in the "olden days" were so glad to see each other
and yes, you made us all feel young again. God Bless You One and
All! Please, if you will, I encourage you to get a letter off
re. Coach Davis' induction into the High School Coaches Hall of
W. Ozelle Wilcoxson, Justice of the Peace.
Class of 1956
Class of 1947.. You have a wonderful site here and quite a few
of the "oldies" (people and places) bring back many fond memories..
Thanks for the oportunity to revisit Wills Point.
Peggy, this is a fantastic job on the web site. I especially liked
the Photo Gallery and pictures of some of my old teachers. All
the pictures brought back great memories.
Peggy, you've done a fantastic job with this site. I've spent
hours looking at every page and it has touched memories I forgot
Randy Read Class of '71
My attention was called to the Photo Gallery and I am so glad
I took a look at it. I'm from the WPHS Class of 1950 but Wills
Point is still my heart's home.
Great to see so many familiar faces. Always loved keeping up w/u
guys when I cd find you. Sure wd like to see more pics. Nice to
see those at the Reuion 9/23, also. I hope you all stay in touch.
Terrific website, Pat - Peggy. Good work
God Bless All Of The Class of "65"
What a great site! Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories.
Greatest team in history. Proud to have been the mother of one
of the managers.
It's hard to believe that magical football season was 40 years
ago. Sometimes I can't remember "awhile ago", but I'll never forget
the Fall of '65. Wills Point was a special place for all of us
that year. Great teachers,great friends,and special events like
the '65 football season make for great memories.
This looks like a very good web site.
I would love to know who is managing this site and who created
it. It is so much fun to look at our history. I have just retired
from 32 years of teaching and it seems like only yesterday we
were moving to the new high school, class of 1967! Wills Point
High School was the greatest then. By the way, this site is Great,
Jo East Callahan
Great site...many pleasant memories of WPHS.
I am no longer the web master for the school site, but I am helping
the new guy, Randy Reagan. Could somebody email me and let me
know if it is okay for him to put a link to this site from the
ISD's home page? (Especially the state champs part since the field
is being dedicated this year to Coach Davis) This site looks great,
by the way!
This is a GREAT site, but please add more pictures...
Hope to see you at home coming,,,,,,,
This is going to be a great site. Count me in for some ad space.
