Was researching the word Grit for a training class (like the John Wayne movie) and ran across your blog. I grew up in Waldorf Md from 2nd thru 9th grade and that is exactly what a grit was down the the multi layers of socks
Class of 1967 Crossland married John F Kennedy II (Jack) class of 1966 (deceased 1997) WOULD LOVE TO SEE SOME OLD FRIENDS
I live in Hillcrest Hight from 1956- 1989 it be great to see some old friends
I went to Shugart from '68 to '71. Mr Lesher was the principal and Mr. McKean was the vice principal. The most memorable teacher I had was Mr. Rush who was my gym teacher in 7th and 9th grade. My best friends at the school were Adrian Baez who was on the baseball and soccer teams, Rocky Elliott who was on the basketball and baseball teams and Jim Cherowitzo. I was on the wrestling and track teams. Lots of good times.
I went there in for one year 9th grade 1967. I can’t pronounce the shop teachers name, Mr. Coostenis?
Had a lot of good times there. Some of my friends were: Gene Vernon, Phil Taylor and his brother David Taylor. Carlton Evans and his brother Jack Evans. I actually lived in Glassmanor over near the Eastover shopping center (Oxon Hill). Had to be bused over to school and if I missed the bus I had to walk about 2-3 Miles. That happened quite often too! I caught the bus in front of the DrugFair store. Which was next to the Safeway store. There were also other buses there that were for Potomac High School.
Very nice! I am Class of 70!
I was one of the cafeteria ladies

Trying to see the yearbook 71
Since most of my family are passed when I look back on pictures from areas I grew up around it makes me feel happy. Thank you for sharing
Thinking about when I lived on Dixon Street and attending Shugart Jr High

All of the yearbooks have been marked as unsafe. Will not open
Wow ! I am quite impressed with the great graphics and organized topics . Great job. I am a member of Ron Tutt's Native Washingtonian group. I created The Glover Park/ Burleith / Georgetown / Mac Arthur Blvd. page.
Growing up in D.C. I knew people from all over the "metro" area . Yep "block style" listened to a lot of Motown in the '60's -' 70's ! Then Bell bottoms , etc. !
I believe I bought my 1978 Gaunlet from Crossland. They have extra copies of yearbooks.
I just saw this response, Carlos. I know it's old but did you ever find the information you were looking for?
Is there any 1978 Gauntlet yearbooks for sale to buy?
