Claiborne County High School Class of 1955 Senior Trip to Washington, D.C.

Hi Joe,
I need to have someone to identify teachers in a picture I have of the class of 1955 made at our nations capitol. I know not seeing the photo will make it difficult but I am assuming you graduated from CCHS in the 50's and will have a working knowledge of who the teachers were. I think they are Mr. Holt, Mr. Drinnon, Mrs. Drinnon and Mrs. Park Carr. I think Mr. Drinnon was the principal. There is another big woman in the picture. I don't know who she might be unless there was a Mrs. Holt. Joann Hayes is in the picture. I would guess everyone knew Joann.
This is my brothers class. He was Jim Eden. He is now deceased. I hope to give this picture to his daughter for Christmas and would like to give her as much information as possible . I wish I had a way of identifying the whole class but guess that is impossible.

Thanks for your time. Etta Downing

The identification comes from a wonderful young lady, Etta J. Norris, wife of Roy Norris by way of Tina Lephew. Thanks to you both.
