 The dedication of this year’s Obion County Central High School annual honored the 50th anniversary of the consolidation of the county’s high schools — excluding Union City and South Fulton high schools — to form OCCHS. Members of the first graduating class from 1962 were invited Friday to a continental breakfast in the school library, followed by the dedication of the yearbook at the start of the school’s annual awards program in the gymnasium. Guests also included a few county commissioners and school board members and other elected officials. The first copy of this year’s Rebel annual was presented to Obion County Mayor Benny McGuire (second from right), a 1965 graduate of OCCHS, who enjoyed reminiscing with OCCHS Class of 1962 members (from left) Neil and Doris Glover of South Fulton, Joe Whitesides of Troy and Sam Huey of Hornbeak. McGuire noted he was a freshman when OCCHS opened in 1962 and his grandson, Kane Ferguson, is a freshman this year on the 50th anniversary.
