Southside High School recently held a 50-year reunion For the Class of 1973.

Alumni from the class of 73 came back to their old stomping grounds and enjoyed some food and reminisced about the good times when they were students at Southside. Some of the alumni still live in Selma while others traveled from other states to make the 50-year reunion. Southside High School Principal Cedric Brown said it was an honor to have the alumni in the school again.

“Oh, what a milestone! It was a pleasure to host such a fabulous group of elders,” Brown said. “Some of them still reside in Selma while others have moved away. I really enjoyed them with sharing good old times as well as traditions through the years.
