Boys Girls state Searcy AR 1980's

Boys and Girls State Members?  What year?

I used to teach at Searcy High School, Searcy AR, so I remember most of these young people.  I can't read the shirts but I think they were the Boys and Girls State members who got to go to the state meeting and possibly run for office and get a real taste for leadership.  It would be fun for them to perhaps check in and let us know what is going on in their lives.  I remember that my son, Paul, was a selected member one year and these were friends.  He may have taken the picture because our historic courthouse is in the background and he was big on photography at the time.

Leah, thanks for naming everyone.  I wish Paul had put himself in the picture.  Did this ever run in the yearbook?

Hello Tina,

I saved your picture so you were one of my favorite students!  On the back it says, "Ms D, you're my favorite teacher in the world.  Thanks for the help with Jerry and everything else.  Love Ya, Tina."  

Remind me who was Jerry?  And it is great to hear from you!

Leslie, I remember Greg so well.  He was one of Paul's best friends.
