LAHS Graduates From 1945-1955 Reunite At Fuller Lodge

Los Alamos High School graduates from 1945-1955 gathered at Fuller Lodge Friday to get reaquainted and share memories. Dee Rightley (class of 1950) was one of the organizers. There were about 40 graduates in her class and it boasted the largest turnout at the reunion. The new Los Alamos High School opened in 1949 and students had to use board walkways to get through the muddy grounds, Rightley said. Photo by Bonnie J. Gordon/
Ray Gonzales, class of 1945 graduated early because he was called up to serve in the Navy before graduation. His wife Joanne Griffen Gonzales (class of 1949) also attended the reunion. Gonzales was the earliest graduate in attendance at the reunion. Photo by Bonnie J. Gordon/
