The 1964 classes of Burke and C. A. Brown High Schools celebrated their 50th class reunion from June 4 through June 8, 2014. The long weekend was filled with fun activities and remembrances of heartwarming times, especially when we marched down the aisle with the 2014 graduating class of Burke High School at the North Charleston Coliseum.

On June 5 the classes held an “Ice Breaker Barbecue” at Calvary Episcopal Church’s Parish Hall. Lots of good southern food were served and enjoyed by all. For those classmates wanting a challenge, many games were on hand.

A “Meet and Greet” was held at the Holiday Inn Riverview on June 6. All present thoroughly enjoyed mingling, networking, and reminiscing.

Al Miller from Al Miller Bus Tours took us back in time and history as we toured Johns Island, James Island, and downtown Charleston. Our last stop was California Dreaming for lunch. Later that day we celebrated with a banquet at the Air Force Base. During the banquet Judge Robert N. Jenkins, retired Circuit Family Court Judge and fellow classmate, was honored for the work he has done as an active community leader and a children’s advocate in South Carolina for many, many years.

As middle schoolers, the 1964 graduating class of Burke High School made a pack to keep in touch and celebrate as often as possible. We have class meetings monthly and a Christmas gala each year. Our class has been involved with Burke High School and the community since we graduated in 1964. Our contributions over the years have included: Giving scholarships ranging from $500.00 to $3,000.00 each year; purchasing one band uniform; and volunteering to tutor and assist teachers with students on Saturdays.

This year we awarded Jasmine Robinson $1,000.00 scholarship, Jasmine would be attending Claflin University in the fall.

We are looking forward to a 70th Birthday Party in a couple of years and 2 year reunion in the future.
