Ninth Grade Workman Basketball Group_RTP_SFW

This photo of the basketball team at Workman Junior High School was my first photograph that I ever had published and received credit for creating.  I also was in the ninth grade, so this made me thirteen or fourteen.  I have talked to several of the guys in this photo in the past few years, but the majority of them I have not heard from or seen in the last forty years or so.  I have seen Coach Bridges at the Publix on 9TH and Bayou once or twice in the last several years and I have some mutual friends of Coach Shipmen that fish with him and they say he is doing well.  Both of these men must have graduated from college  and this Workman job must have been one of their first teaching jobs back in 1966.  Thanks for looking … Frank
