    Fantastic job, Bill, on all of the interviews regarding one of the greatest events in Marietta High’s 125 year old history! I really enjoyed listening to ten of our 1967 Blue Devil Champions as they gave us their account of that rainy night in Georgia one more time! It never gets old:) Also great to hear a little bit about the other aspect of their lives.
    Also, it was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to share with you and your listeners what my four years as a Marietta High School Cheerleader meant to me. I tried my
    best to convey, too, what it meant to ALL of the girls that I cheered with during my time at MHS! Of course, I particularly enjoyed reminiscing about the greatest night of them all when our guys won the State Championship!!!

    IT WAS A GREAT NIGHT. WHAT A GREAT GAME. THE SEGREGATION WITH LEMON STREET SCHOOL WAS AT FIRST PENSIVE BUT WE QUICKLY MESSED DESPITE THE NATIONS PROBLEMS. I MADE SOME GOOD FRIENDS. LENA BENNETT, WOW COULD THAT GIRL PLAY SOME BASKETBALL. SHE ALSO BECAME A GOOD FRIEND. THE LAST I KNEW OF HER WAS SHW WORKED FOR THE USPS. SWEET GIRL.
