We are pleased to announce that the high school yearbooks from Bland County High Schools are now available for viewing online. We wish to thank OCI (Oklahoma Correctional Industries) for digitizing these valuable yearbooks so that they have been preserved and made available online to interested parties. We are especially grateful to Joe Jacobs for his assistance in coordinating this project between BCHS and OCI. The scanning of the yearbooks was done free of charge, including the shipping costs between Bland and Oklahoma City.

We express our appreciation to all those individuals who have donated or loaned yearbooks to BCHS. A special "shout out" is given to Brenda Wagner King for collecting the lion's share of these yearbooks while serving as our archivist. The Ceres Alumni Association (CAA) was especially helpful in locating the Ceres High School yearbooks.

Hard copies of many of these yearbooks are available for viewing at the following locations: Bland County Historical Society, Ceres Alumni Association FFA Museum, Bland County Public Library and Bland County High School Library at Rocky Gap.

We hope you enjoy looking at these yearbooks and that they trigger your many happy memories of high school days. Should you wish to have a digital copy of your yearbook, you may contact us at 276-688-0088 or info@blandcountyhistsoc.org and we will make you a copy for $15 (CD + mailing).
