To view the rest of your Jack Yates High School Classmates you must first

Rita Goodie

Class of 1943

Rita Goodie Dorsey played drums in the marching band. She is now 90 years old and still shares fond memories of the high school with her family along with her sister, Agnes Goodie Johnson, 93, who graduated in 1942. Marsha Dorsey-Outlaw, a local artist is composing a public art piece for the immediate community and would like to add a bit of Yates history to the composition. If any alumnus who graduated in 1957 or earlier is still in possession of their class ring, Ms. Dorsey-Outlaw is very interested in making a plaster cast of that ring so it's impression be part of the mural! 1957 or earlier is important because this is when the school was located where Ryan Middle School is now. Please contact at as soon as possible if you, your elder or predecessor fits this description. Many thanks!
