Itawamba Agricultural High School Senior Class of 1930

I had an enjoyable visit yesterday with Calvin Ritter of Amory in neighboring Monroe County. He brought along with hm to Fulton an old senior class photograph of Itawamba Agricultural High School from 1930 (portion of the photograph above) to share with the readers of Itawamba Settlers magazine and Itawamba History Review. Some county students in the photograph include Mildred Moore (Sheffield), Jessie Greene, Allen Lindsey, Ruby Sheffield, Evelyn Wiygul (Ridings), Marrah Boozer (Ritter), Virginia Greene (Boozer), Crafton Gray, Irma Patterson (Estes), Opal Williams, Johnny Bethay, Omer Wiygul and Glen Loden. (see high resolution photo of entire group).

Calvin Ritter descends from one of the early Itawamba settlers, Anderson Ritter of the old Carolina community. He is also a direct descendant of the Boozer family of the same area.
