Bossier High School is celebrating its centennial year.
The Bossier Bearkats and Bossier High Alumni Association united for a ribbon cutting celebration Friday, Sept. 16. Among those attending were Bossier City Mayor Lo Walker, Bossier Schools Superintendent Scott Smith, Carolyn Grimsley, BHSAA president, as well as 2017 senior class representatives from the 100th graduating class at Bossier High.
There will be several events held throughout the centennial celebration. The search is also on to find the oldest living Bossier High graduate.
What else is needed — BHSAA has collected yearbooks, but would like a football, band, or other uniforms, report cards, books, posters, photos showing life of teens in Bossier. Did you go to the Don Drive in theater? Cruise the strip? Eat at Cobb’s BBQ? Do you have any stories that would make our history richer that you would be willing to share with your name or anonymously?
Contact Carolyn Grimsley at 318-219-6258 or email BossierHigh100@gmail.com with information.
