This May marks the 30th anniversary of the closing of Simmesport High School. For those of you who had the fortune to attend ole SHS, we are celebrating its history with a reunion. This reunion, headed up by the last Eagle Principal, Mr. Kirk Guidry. This reunion, to be held at the former SHS gymnasium, will take place on August 4, 2018, from 1 PM to 4 PM. This will be an informal get-together for any and all people who attended Simmesport High and proudly wore the old “pomegranate and puice” (a phrase coined by the legendary Terry Lemoine). All faculty and staff are invited to come by and visit and reminisce for a few hours. A separate website committed to the reunion will be up soon. Mr. Kirk Guidry, who is spearheading this, will also have sign-up sheets for all who wish to attend so we can know how many people to expect. Stay tuned for more details. You can also keep track of plans and peruse old photos on the Simmesport High School Alumni Facebook page.
