Please note that due to the recent relocation/joining of schools in McDowell County, I am providing only one current contact link for the schools still in operation.

IF your alumni group is not listed  below and would liked to be added to this link page, please let me know.

 Links to student, work and military locators are available at the bottom of this page,.

Thanks to "Linda" for helping me get this web page  cleaned up and hopefully inspiring us to use it more  often to contact our special friends .
I'm sure many other links need corrected here and on the other WHS Alumni web pages but since  YOU  are the ones who use them, you have to let me know what needs to be changed.
And THANK YOU, sweet sister Tammy, and my other friends, who on your own time fix so many of the silly mistakes I make on this website and who try to keep our message boards, our msising persons lists, etc. lucid enough for all of us to  decipher what's real from what's just plain crazy..

P.S. Linda, I'm so flattered with your offer to help and I hope I can return it 10 times over.  You entered my lfe at a time I was ready to close tthis laptop  and put it in tomorrow morning's garbagse can.....seriously!  I may have to delete that  link to "Princeton papers "0k sometimes I work; other times it's just too damned hot to be doing anything in southern WV."  The link is no big deal because the local/larger Bluefielld Daily Times owns and covers all the neighborinhg Priinceton local news.  Ttrust me, not much goes on down there -- in Bluefieldf or Princeton anyway.  Yet people still have the need to patiently sip that  cup of coffee and breathe that sigh of relief once they note their name was not included in the recently deceased list.   I go thru it myself everyday!

May God Bless You and Yours Always,.....Donnie   (I'm female  but "Donnie Mae" is what I've been  called most of my life.)
