(KITTRELL) Around 125 persons attended the Kittrell School Reunion this past Saturday at the Science Hill Church of Christ (8120 Woodbury Pike, Readyville TN).

98-year old Jane Jones Goodwin of Kittrell's class of 1943 was honored as the oldest grad in attendance. Close behind was Robert Stroop of the class of 1945, and Mary Katherine Messick Simpson of the class of 1947.


In addition, three former teachers were at the Kittrell Reunion, and two of them were also former Kittrell students as well: Steve Cates, Tim Miller and Clarence Brandon. 

There were many reunion visitors who would be classified as intergenerational groups, sibblings, etc. 

While talking with WGNS news, Steve Cates explained, "Some of us grads go back for generations. My grandmother, Bessie Carnahan Cates, graduated there i 1904, my parents in 1931 and 1932, and on and on." 

Cates continued, "Now my great-nephew's wife, Natalie Rickett's Cates, teaches at Kittrell, and my neice, Shannon Cates Jakes, is an EA there."
