Awesome Progress made on identifying Hopkins School 1948-49 students

Age old question of rankings of Hopkins, Vester, and Garlin may finally be settled
The identification of the students in the eight grades of Hopkins School, Christine, KY, 1948-1949 is making awesome progress.

So far, about one-half of the students are identified. Help has come from the photos owner, Rolling McQueary, from Lila Ford, Thelbert Curry, Lewis Curry, and A.L. Sinclair.

The speed with which the Hopkins alumni are attacking this historical puzzle is helping to set to rest the age old question as to who is the better educated, the student who graduated Hopkins, Vester, or Garlin.

So far, we've had no help on the identification of a Garlin School photo of similar vintage.

Unless the Garlin scholars run a fast break, victory may go the men and women who treasure the memories of Hopkins School.
