May 22, 1914 – Smallest FHS Graduating Class in History

The smallest graduating class in the history of Follansbee High School was preparing for commencement. The three graduates were Mildred Wood, Marie Jackson, and Joseph Boyd. The annual sermon to the 1914 class was delivered at the Christian Church by Rev. N.W. Phillips. The banquet was held at Eagles Hall. Oliver Williams, of the class of 1912, was the master of ceremonies. In conjunction with the graduation, was the second annual field day exercise of Follansbee High that occurred at Ferguson Field. The events begin with the field meet. All members of the high school took part in the many contests.
