50 Years ago students with the NCHS Class of 1962 graduated. 5 decades later this past weekend they got back together to remember on their time there. “The Nelson County High School Classes of 1962-1966 have held a joint class reunion for the past several years and from that we have been able to fund a scholarship each year to a NCHS student in memory of Catherine Whitehead, who was our guidance counselor,” said Dolores Saunders Hill
