DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A special day for one Dothan private school. Houston Academy is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The celebration coincided with the first day of school. The birthday bash started this morning with former alumni welcoming students back to class.
Later in the day, alumni got together for a group photo and reminisced on some of the school’s greatest achievements.
“I always felt safe and comfortable and that my children were in a wonderful learning environment. Where they were well-loved. I felt like as a parent I was apart of the school and part of the communications between teachers,” Julie Shaw said.
“It’s just super cool to see all the alumni come back and be able to celebrate this with us,” said Annagrace Holland, the SGA President.
Alumni from 1974 to 2019 came out to participate in the special day.
