Among those celebrating their 50th (1959) Albemarle High School Class Reunion were students who attended the (old) Crozet and Greenwood Schools. The celebration was held at Wintergreen, September 19. The class honored their principal and teacher, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Hurt of Crozet. The Hurts attended all three functions held by the class.
Eighty members attended the celebration with Jim Meen of Australia traveling the furthest. Balloons were released in remembrance of 22 deceased members.
