Jimmy Smithers

Class of 1990

James Allister Smithers, half-brother of Eddie P'terman, graduated from SHS in 1990 after a lively but academically and socially disappointing tenure. His long, labored 7 year high school career was increasingly marked by social missteps, academic failures, and athletic incompetence. However, Jimmy claimed a lone "point of light" during this cumbersome period of adolescence---he served as the local chairman of Jesse Jackson's failed Democratic Presidential nomination campaign in 1988. A worthy and laudable post--especially for a youth of Afro-Anglo-Asian heritage stricken from birth with a third nipple and the formation of chronic pustules under his scrotum.
After graduation, with the distinction of retaining the lowest GPA in SHS history, Jimmy enrolled at the University of Tennessee where he soon found his niche as Johnny Majors liquor caddy at Holston Hills County Club. Jimmy finalized his inauspicious post-secondary education with an honorary B.A. degree in Barn Scraping, while posting his last semester while being bed-ridden with an extremely acute case of Elephantitus of the testes.
Jimmy entered graduate school at the University of Memphis on a full reverse minority scholarship and completed a course of study in Scholastic Anthropology where he had his third nipple excised by a former Veterinary School drop out. Jimmy again surpassed expectations of his woefully underachieving family and graduated second from the bottom of the class.
Jimmy entered the workforce in 1997 as an assistant understudy for the manual manipulation of utters on the Watson Farm at Pond Creek. Here he fervently excelled, and soon he was promoted to primary linguistic supervisor for "undocumented" workers. Jimmy continues to diligently carry out his duties with the utters while devoting time to hauling gravel from Wood's limestone quarry at Watts Bar to less fortunately families in Pickle Town and Black Oak ridge. Jimmy has 3 half children, a goat, and a gerbil.
