Hello! Welcome to the area which originally was devoted to the Clarion HS Class of '50. Over time we hope to expand this site to include other classes and information related to Clarion High School. We've been expecting you!
In Loving Memory Clarion County Senior Judge
Charles Robert Alexander
Observation and a remembrance: As the members of the Clarion High School Class of 1950 went on to pursue various careers, Chuck was probably the one who had the highest profile of the class due to remaining in his hometown of Clarion and eventually becoming Senior Judge in Clarion County for a number of years. At one of our reunions (maybe the 55th) he told me that, as a pastor, I might appreciate what he had to deal with at times as a judge. He said he would have people who would appeal for early release from jail on basis that they had found Jesus, and that this experience should merit their early release. Then Chuck said that the big problem he had was that he had never found a way for them to take Jesus along with them after release -- seems too many always left Jesus just where they had found Him -- in jail!
Hey there, how about stopping for a bit? My name is Theo and I work for the Circuit Rider at his web site, Circuit Rider's Range. He and I got acquainted many years ago, and he is still greatly disturbed about the trouble and chaos I have caused -- but that's another story which you can check into later at the Range. Most of you know him as Clayton H. and many, many moons ago most of you in that CHS Class of '50 called him "Tex" for some reason -- I think it started when he began wearing those skinny legged western jeans to school! Anyway, as mentioned above, this area was originally set up for the Class of '50. But we would like to expand it to include other classes and information related to those classes as well as historic photos related to the community of Clarion.
SO, if you have photos of past reunions or other photos which relate to Clarion High School and/or the Clarion community which you can scan and pass on to C. D. Harriger, please do so. And if possible, please send them in .jpg format. They can be attached to an email sent to the address given at the bottom of this area.
OK, enough annoucement stuff -- back to the subject -- it was very obvious from the beginning for those Class of '50 members who took the "tour" of Clarion High School that computer technology is a prominent part of the school. Were it not for this type of technology, the Clarion High School Class of ?? web site area would not have been possible.
Taking a look around inside that "Vintage 2000" High School building!
We were honored with the presence of Mr. and Mrs. William Lafranchi
Mr. Lafranchi was a member of the faculty at Clarion High School in 1950
A long overdue apology to Mr. Lafranchi -- "I am very sorry for giving you nightmares and causing you more than once to probably ask yourself, 'Why did he have to come to this school?'" --- from a repentant cdh!
Recognize this lady who qualifies for title, "Ms. Bubbly?"
A very beautiful setting in which to visit and eat a very delicious meal!
Don't forget now -- you've got to come back -- you never know when there might be some changes here, in spite of the webservant's poor memory and it is getting worse as time moves on -- I think I remember that time moves on!
And if you want to see how the Class of '52 looked to the Class of '50 seniors --
you were such innocent looking sophomores at that time at CHS --
