Our Class of 1974 was honored at the graduation ceremony of OHHS - Class of 2024 on May 17, 2024, fifty years to the date, since our graduation!!! Our class was the first in Oak Hill's history to have an outdoor graduation on our football field. To our dismay, once into our ceremony with Mr. Merrill D. Davis as our speaker, rain forced our ceremony indoors to our auditorium!!!!  Hence, our high school's first outdoor-indoor graduation!!!!   

Our Class of 1974 extends a heartfelt thank you to our administration, staff, and to our OHHS - Class of 2024, for honoring our class on our 50th anniversary.  Our class expresses to our new graduates ....... a bright future of happiness, joy and love, a new journey of adventures to explore, and please know that nothing is impossible to achieve, because with God, ALL things are possible. Congratulations to our OHHS - Class of 2024!!!
