The Class of 67 recently held a 55th Reunion and had Classmate Preston Lawhorne deliver a talk on his adventures at Glass. He has written three books in regards to his time at Glass. I have added the copy of the talk to our site as it is very poignant to Glass experiences.

Here is the link:

or click School Days under the ECG logo at the top of the page'

Comment from Jan Martin Holloran: I saw the note about Preston Lawhorne’s books on the Glass website. Just want to say they were wonderful. I read all three in less than a week. I enjoyed them very much. I knew one of his brothers personally back in the day so maybe that had something to do with it. But aside from that, I think anyone would enjoy them. Preston had a way with words and very humorous. I wish he would write another one!

Why is it that our high school experiences occupy such a prominent place in our memories?

—Amy Coldwell, Chicago, Illinois

During high school, we develop the most vigorous adult bodies we will ever have. At the same time, we possess the least amount of sense we will ever have. This combination produces many memorable moments! Marilyn Vos Savant

Letter from David Sutor:




Dear Tim:

I am very sorry to have to send my regrets in that I am unable to attend our Class Reunion. I had sincerely wanted to come and see everyone, but as the time drew nearer, I could not rearrange my schedule in order to attend.

When I was in Lynchburg in May visiting family, I stopped by E C Glass one afternoon and asked the front desk if it was permissible for me to look around. I had never set foot in our Alma Mater since our graduation day.

The staff was very nice and allowed me to roam around. People often say that, when one revisits a location from their youth which seemed large back then, that they are surprised at how small it is today. To my pleasant surprise, this was not the case with E C Glass.  It is a vast, monumental complex, and I was tremendously impressed.  In fact, I have seen other high schools in other cities, and none of them have ever compared with the sheer size, character, and reputation of E C Glass High School.

Many memories returned as I walked the halls, our beautiful auditorium, the impressive library, and the extraordinary additions to the Athletic Department.

But, of course, the "school" in my memory is actually all of us. Is my memory correct that ours was the largest graduating class in the history of E C Glass High School? We were the peak of the baby boom. I am very proud of our class and how our numbers have scattered around the world, with many successes, and exemplifying the good character of our great school.

Again, I am so sorry that I cannot meet with you all, but I know that we will be doing this again, perhaps in five years. Thank you very much, Tim, for having produced this great Reunion, and I am certain that all of you who do attend will have a wonderful time. Myolder brother, Tommy, was extremely impressed with his Reunion two years ago. Meeting with his classmates from Glass was extraordinary.

I request that, if you have any involvement in planning a future Reunion, you please let me know, and I will do everything possible to be there with you all.

My sincerest wishes of great success to you all. What a crowd.


David Sutor
