|Austin High School Class of 1962
Stephen F. Austin High School, Austin, Texas
In a brief program, Sarah Burcham Tapley reminded us of the importance of staying in touch and
locating our missing classmates. We remembered those who are no longer with us. Tina
McGaughey and Theo Wilkes Coonrod then led us in a resounding rendition of Loyal Forever,
followed by Beer, Beer. The remainder of the evening was filled with visiting, a little dancing, and
a lot of picture taking.
Many thanks to everyone who participated and helped with the weekend's activities. We're all
looking forward to gathering again in five years.

50th Class Reunion
The 50th class reunion of the Class of '62 was held April 20-21, 2012. We
had over 265 in attendance!
Activities began Friday morning with Dedication Day at Austin High School.
They continued Friday evening under a Texas sky at Serrano's at Symphony
Square where classmates and guests mingled and enjoyed a Mexican buffet.
Band and orchestra members, and anyone else who was so inclined,
gathered for lunch Saturday at Cafe Express.
The evening event was a buffet dinner at the UT Alumni Center. The program
began with a video of Austin from "our" days. Sarah welcomed everyone and
passed the microphones to Julie Valentine and Kathy Young McGhee who
gave an entertaining verbal snapshot of our class based on directory
responses. After recognizing those who are no longer with us, Tina
McGaughey and Theo Wilkes Coonrod led us in "Loyal Forever" and our
"Fight Song." The evening concluded with an attempt at a class picture, lots
of visiting, and hopes that we would reunite in five years.
