1987 GHS Graduates Look Back

In August of 1988 a reporter for the New York Times wrote a story about some Gallatin High School graduates. The story, “Class of ‘87 in a Small Missouri Town Thinks Big” by William Robbins, was featured under the “Education” segment of the paper.

“Phillip loved being catered to,” said his mother Tiffony. “He was allowed to eat as much shrimp, lobster tail, and steak as he wanted.”

That was just one sampling of the fun served up to the 15-year-old.
