RCHS Class of 1972
100 1314

In 1972, the average cost of a gallon of gas was 55 cents. The Volkswagen Beetle became the most popular car ever. Watergate began to unfurl. Stevie Wonder was on the radio and “The Godfather” hit the silver screen. And Rockdale County High School’s Class of 1972 graduated and went on to make their mark in the world. 

The RCHS Class of 1972 gathered again on Oct. 20, 2012, to celebrate their 40th reunion at Cherokee Run Golf Course and catch up with one another. About 70 attendees flew in from as far as California (Herschel Kilgore), Nevada (Jean Cassens), Tennessee (Debbie Going), Maryland (Ethelene Shipp) and many came from all over Georgia, many from Conyers.

The members who signed in were Mary Baker, Calvin Bailey, Emily and David Bigham, Chris Bowen, Jean Cassens, Elaine and Randy Cole, Michelle Curry, Terry Lee Davis, Charletta Eliot, Tom Swift, Betty Flanigan, Elizabeth Foster Vandergriff, Chris George, Deborah Going Lafever, Willie George Gibson, Penny Louise Hales, Al Hall, Barry Hamlin, Ray Dean Hamm, Deborah Hawkins Everson, Emory Hicks, Paulette Hill Mcdermott, Patsy and Benny Payne, Mitchel Jessup, Herschel Kilgore, Diane and Linda Ledford, Sylvester Lee, Tony Lucas, Vickie Masters Almand, Andy Moon, Vickie Nabors, Linda Parker Pickens, Thomas Anthoney Parker, Deborah Perry Shellnut, Harper Penn, Rodney Rachels, Elizabeth Rogers Andersen, Gary Savage, James Shaw, Ethelene (E.R.)
