Wednesday, November 13, 2019 by ROBERT WARMKESSEL in School

The Class of 1949 was the 20th and last class to graduate from the former South Whitehall High School.

The following year, the school district’s name was changed to Parkland.

This class had 84 graduates. Fifty-three have died, leaving 31 members still living.

Of that number, five have moved out of the area.

On Oct. 16, graduates of the class of 1949 gathered for a reunion at Morgan’s Restaurant, South Whitehall.

Class officers were originally elected in their freshman year.
