The 2009 Sherman School Reunion
2009 Sherman school reunion will be held on Saturday, April
25th at the Sherman Library. The event begins at
10:30 AM in the
library conference room. The library is located in the old
school building which is the only remaining building of the school in
Sherman. The reunion is open to anyone who attended
Sherman school, as well as, former teachers and friends.
The school originally opened as Mississippi Normal College on September
1, 1890 with 75 pupils. With the development of the Public School
System, about 1907, its patronage dwindled and a few years later the
school was consolidated with the Public system. The
school was open
to grades 1 thru 12 until 1964 at which time the doors were
permanently. After the school closed all students were sent
surrounding schools in Lee, Pontotoc and Union counties.
This year the
Friends of Sherman Library are selling plate lunches for $10.00 which
includes drink and dessert. The proceeds they collect will go
fund they set up last year for building a community center in
