About This Site
From all historical perspectives, 1985 would have been just another routine year at Lone Oak High School, if we could call anything at LOHS routine. Except that the year began with a Vice Presidential visit from George H. W. Bush. From this point we may not even know it happened except that it was well documented in the yearbook for 1985. And it was probably even better documented in the Oak-K, but unfortunately we don't have that issue, which probably became a collectors item the minute it hit the halls.
The other most rememberable event for the Class of 85 was snow, snow and more snow. Between December and March, a total of 20 school days were missed due to the white stuff. Hello! Count em! That's a whole month of missing school days. Days that had to be made up and wound up obliterating several Saturdays and holidays during the Spring semester and extending the school year well into the first of June. Graduation on June 3rd was the latest in decades. The winter weather also posponed or cancelled many ballgames, events and trips during the year.
Principal Tommy Stephenson continued to lead the school, this year graduating over 175 seniors. For 1985, we have the yearbook and only five of nine Oak-K newsletters, all with memories of a great year. We hope to build on the collection for 1985, but hope you enjoy what we have. If you have addition information that is applicable to the Class of 85, please e-mail the site Webmaster. Please provide contact information so that we may reply.
