A group of students at Peebles High School, under the direction of Computer Science teacher Bill Lewis, have recently completed the initial work in creating a digital display of the senior class photos from past years. The senior composites for all PHS graduating classes from 1942 to 2013 have been digitized and can be viewed on a 42-inch display in the main lobby at Peebles High School or on-line through the PHS web site at www.peebles.scoca-k12.org.
Old composite photos for the classes graduating in 1941, 1938, and prior to 1937 could not be found. If someone has a class photo or yearbook for these years, please contact Bill Lewis or an officer of the PHS Alumni Association. There are plans to re-digitize some of the class images to get a better quality display, and hopefully work on this will be continued to keep it up to date.
The original printed composites have been covered in acid-free paper (donated by Diane Lewis) and stored in a large wooden box made just for this project by David Peterson (PHS class of 1960). The computer and TV equipment were provided through funds from the PHS Alumni Association.
The project was begun in the spring of 2008, and was furnished early in early December of 2013. The following students have worked on this project: Stephen Arey (2008), Evan Meade (2009), Caleb Rayburn (2013), Zachery Smalley (2013), Brandon Stratton (2014), Logan McCann (2015), and Steven Partin (2015).
Mr. Lewis and the PHS Alumni Association would like to also thank the Facilities Maintenance Department of Ohio Valley Schools for their help in mounting the equipment.
