Tampico High School Juniors 1961-62

Submitted by Bob Johnson

R. Hinton writes: I can identify our friend Sam Chapin (son of the creamery owner) as top row 2nd from right, and I'm sure the middle row 3rd from right is Kathy Kelly's husband Ron Kelly...... The fellow on the top row with the glasses is certainly a Buddy Holly fan..

Row #2 Pic #1 is Diana Braasch (unsure of spelling of the last name),
