Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have yet another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter.  Bill McLaughlin passed away in Newport News at the age of 76.  Bill distinguished himself as a track star during his days at NNHS:


From Bill Gross (February, '48) of VA - 07/21/07:

In the morning paper there is a Bill McLaughlin listed in the obits. It doesn't say so, but he was a graduate of NNHS. Could have been as late as Feb. 49.

   Thank you, Bill.  I definitely would have missed this one altogether.
