Nov. 26, 1984, in The Star: The Anniston High School PTA, recently revived after a long period of dormancy, held its first meeting Nov. 19. Four parents and two administrators showed up — despite the interest that around 100 parents professed to have had in October.

He indicated the group would try to do a better job of notifying members for the next meeting, which will be in January.
