As my senior year drew to a close, the graduating members of the
Abbeville High School Class of 1997 gathered on the home bleachers at
Hite Stadium for a class photo.
We stood in our caps and gowns and
smiled as a professional photographer snapped photos and captured images
we would later be able to purchase. Soon, the photographer was done,
but the graduates were not.
There were still other photos to be
taken, and Press and Banner reporter Henry E. Green would be the one to
take them. I still remember our class gave Henry a “Bronx cheer” as he
stepped up on a bench to take his photos for the paper.
