1969 Chattooga High School Yearbook Photos

Here are several photographs taken by T. Emmett Nunn during the 1968-69 school year for Chattooga High School's Sequoyah yearbook. These images were scanned from the original negatives and may appear uncropped compared to those in the yearbook, and several were never used.

The captains of the Chattooga High School football team are shown holding the trophy for winning the Region 7-AA Championship. They are, from left to right, Jim Day, Heath Livingston, Lee Lenderman, and Stacy Ray.

Stacy Ray accepts a football trophy for Most Valuable Defensive Player of 1968 from an unidentified girl.

Tommy Payne was awarded the football trophy for Most Improved Player of 1968.

groupMr. Paul Hosmer (left) is sitting with this group so I'm guessing these are the Future Farmers of America.

The remaining photographs show the 1969 Senior Superlatives, first with an unused "outtake" followed by the uncropped version of the photograph used in the yearbook.
