Senior Day At IJC
Seniors at local schools who had enough credits to graduate were given the opportunity to visit a college of their choice on a certain day and inspect the facility and curriculum.
The photo above is controversial. Mr. Baker told everyone to go to NEMJC (now NEMCC) for their day. Some defied him and went to Itawamba JC instead.
The story goes that this photo was published in the Tupelo Journal the very next morning and he was not pleased with the students who didn't go to Booneville.
IJC was more popular to Baldwyn and Guntown students.
Does anyone recall the outcome of the story? I am sure Mr. J. B. was not congenial to the above pictured students.
