Best known for playing drums in the band.
Curtis remembers from his days at Hickman:
We wore green and white beenies as Sophmores as an initiation from the beginning of school till the Home Coming Game. Everywhere, except on Sunday!
I played drums in the band, the Band Directors were Ellis and Schupp.
School lunch was 20 cents, pop was a nickel. Bags of Fritos, etc. were also a nickel.
Out of the 200 people in our class, only about 5 or 6 boys drove their own cars to school (they were shade tree mechanics) the rest of us either rode the city bus, walked, biked, or got a ride with parents.
I was in Helen Williams' Verse Speaking Choir...the kid in the back who was quiet and never had a lead part. I have laughed many times, because I may be the only one in that choir who made a living talking most of my adult life.
