The 1972 graduates of Liberty High School gathered at the Trinity Valley Exposition hospitality facility Saturday evening, September 10th, to celebrate their 50th class reunion. It was a great celebration of friendship and Liberty High School Heritage.
Around 100 attended, which included graduates, spouses, former students, teachers, and coaches. They enjoyed wonderful fellowship and a catered dinner from Courville’s out of Beaumont. Everyone shared life stories, hugs and memories with old friends and remembered the 42 of the class who had passed.
Warmth and friendship were guests at every table.
