In Memory


Tribute from his brother, Tom Wright, CHS Class of 1964.

My late brother, Jim Wright, was in your class his junior year and the very beginning of your senior year, when our dad retired from the Air Force and we returned to our family home in Mississippi. He played football and was on the wrestling team at CHS.

Jim graduated from Provine High School, Jackson, Mississippi in '65. He started on the Provine Ram's football team and fit right into the southern life. He earned a football scholarship at Hind’s Jr. College, just outside of Jackson at Raymond, Mississippi and played for two years.

He enlisted in the army and served his tour. He worked at one of the large state banks.

Jim died in November of 1974. He was a good guy.

The important things are that he lived and had friends who remember him - like I said, he was a good guy. I truly believe that as long as a person  is remembered that it's a touch of immortality...

Thank you ... for remembering,
Tom Wright
