JOHN B. BOND HIGH SCHOOL
Lewiston, North Carolina
(Painted from a picture in the 1961 year book)
John B. Bond High School was a legend of cultural awareness with an exceptional focus on the importance of reaching for the highest goals possible. Innocent children were entrusted in its care, and this institution nurtured and taught them to realize the self-worth that they each possessed. For years, students were exposed to the best, most recent instruction of the period.
Because of this superior training and motivation, a very high percentage continued their education by attending technical schools and colleges, preparing them for success in many different professions. Named in honor of the Principal, John B. Bond High School is such an important landmark that a portion of Governor’s Road was eventually renamed “JOHN B. BOND HIGHWAY.”
Many JOHN B. BOND HIGH SCHOOL alumni still organize class reunions, some consisting of individual classes and a grand entire school reunion is held on Thanksgiving weekend every two years.
Although my late husband James’ family relocated just before his senior year, he never lost his passionate love for his precious “John Bond” or his beloved teachers.
