                                     A H Parker High School Class of 1961




We welcome all fellow Classmates and guest members to our historical A H Parker 1961 Website. Many former Classmates were only with us for a short time, and a majority, by the grace of God has, as of December 31, 2023, are here celebrating our lives everyday. Covid - 19 is slowing, allowing life style changes to adjust, and we are keeping the faith, and we are having our Celebration Of Life right before our eyes, while we can feel it,  and see it.  All are welcome to join our group and share your memories, and pictures of our past and present of friends, teachers, events, and historical markers, and  A H Parker High School. The Thundering Heard welcomes you, and is eager to see you in our future reunions and get togethers. Joining is easy, locate your name in the "Classmate Profiles," double click, enter an email address, create a password, sign in, tell us about yourself, include a photo or two, and then check out the Website.


Our A H Parker Class of 1961 Web Site, created on December 11, 2009, has recorded 162,449 visitors to our Website Home Page.  Our goal of providing information to keep us connected, updated, creating our own Personal Profile Page,  sharing information, and communicating  with other members continues to draw great interest. We have the freedom and privacy to blog away on topics of interest, and generally,  inform each other on "What's Up" in the future.  Our  goal is to continue our Web Site, Scrapbook, Picture Gallery, development, and  to preserve all  of our memories for all Classmates, families, Guest Members and friends, and this is our Gateway to the "Then and Now". Our website is private and password protected, This feature will keep our treasures safe for generations to come. In 2024, we will create a Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth Picture Gallery to highlight how the human spirit through faith, can maintain the long journey to overcome oppression. This repository of information will remain on-line long into the distant future after our 1961 Classmates have all departed this earth.  We have made much progress in re-establishing  our links to meet our new challenges, but we need your assistance to continue our progress.


The creation of  Our 1961 Web Site has become a special place, and it was created to memorialize the fallen in our "In Memory" a special section of our A H Parker 1961 website that welcomes your comments, pictures, and updates.  Two Hundred Ninety Six (296) of our known Classmates have been entered into "IN MEMORY" on our 1961 Website. The 1950 Census is available on-line and it is very helpful in updating and maintaining information. We have made substantial progress in installing a yearbook picture for everyone as our search for new information continues..  


May 31, 1961 is the historic date that we graduated from  A H Parker High School, and May 31, 2021 represented  our 60th Anniversary date.  Covid-19 has had the last word on all organizations and longterm planning, but that will come to past, as we view a new outlook with our wisdom of going past the Eighty (80) year old, new beginning. There are still a few bumps and hurdles that we must overcome in the consideration of safely organizing large events. It is our hope that 2024 will present a healthy landscape and renew the Right Spirit within us, and it will be coming into view very soon.


Our Password protected Picture Gallery has more than 3000 pictures from the year 1887 through 2024 that includes the origins of  A H Parker High School.  Documents stored on our Web Site  are  safe from fires, floods and other disasters that may threaten our own personal  treasures. Security provisions and password protection are an integral part of our operations on our  A. H. Parker High 1961 Web Site.


Thank you for being a visitor and a registered loyal supporter of our A H Parker 1961 Website.
