APB: NHS Class of ‘74 searching for 200 missing classmates

Terry McFadden, a 1974 graduate of Norwood High School, recently told us a group of her classmates got together and funded this wonderful free website and this blog for all NHS Class of ’74 alumni to visit, add content stories, photos and reconnect with one another. The great thing is the rest of us get to enjoy them, too; and we’ve done just that, starting with the photo gallery of the cheerleaders and classmates all dressed up for dances, awards banquets, and graduation, and click here for even more photos of alumni at previous class reunions. Maybe you know some of the ’74 grads who signed this guest book. There are many other fun (check out Class Trivia), interesting features, and we congratulate everyone for putting together a fantastic website: Terry McFadden; Debbie Simpson, who initially energized the effort; Steve Barker, website development; and Melissa Murray McGrath, and Linda Degaro, who serve on Debbie’s reunion committee.

Now, back to those 200 classmates missing from the Class of ‘74. Terry told us, “We are planning our 35 year reunion for next year - hence the push to find about 200 folks not yet contacted. I have also started a blog at as a way to try to further get the word out, and as a fun way to describe this process of classmate networking and maybe do some other things that our primary site structure won't permit.” Everyone missing from the class is listed on the blog. Terry hopes if any of our readers are family members or old, we mean good, friends of any of the missing, that you’ll help them reconnect for the reunion. One way to do that is email the Class of ’74 website address to them, or have them contact Debbie Simpson at

We’ve added both the website and the blog to our links on the right hand side.
