    • Janet,
      Thank you for the correction. Please check and make sure I have Gloria and Clytie’s names properly placed…Lolita

    • Hi. Will you please share picture of Joycelyn Charbonnet. She graduated with that class. She said she was on the inside cover of the book. She and Alvarez Gavin were class President and Secretary.

  1. Janet…..If you are looking for the Martinez School 1952 graduating class photo just do the following. Go to the main page on CreoleGen, find the “SEARCH” box on the right upper side of the page and type in “Martinez School.” All articles on Martinez will pop up and just click on the one you wish to view. There is also a great photo of the 1939 graduating class also.

  2. Shellie,
    You said that Joycelyn graduated with this class but her photo nor Alvarez’s picture is with the other members as shown above. Maybe, as class president and secretary, their photos were taken separately. This picture was not taken from a regular hardcover book but a paper type booklet. I will check at Xavier University’s Archives where I found it and get back to you.

  3. Shellie,

    I have added the class officers in the 1945 Xavier Prep Graduation group. These 13 students were not pictured in the regular group photo above, just as you said. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Enjoy !!
