See Lyons High School's Earliest Know Student and Teacher Handbook - the "Catalogue"

Thanks to the sleuthing of Robert Brown, Class of '63, we now know that student and teacher handbooks were published as early as 1908. It was called the "Catalogue" and was just 20 pages. You will love this fascinating piece of LHS history.

 
See LHS' First Yearbook - the "Leo-Lite"

Thanks to the generosity of Billy Aiken, Class of '49, we have been able to scan his senior yearbook, which was published by Lyons High School as the first student yearbook and predecessor to the Mastiff. It was called the "Leo-Lite". It was only published once. LHS did not publish an annual again until 1954. Harry Lane submitted the winning name, "Mastiff" in a school competition to name the new yearbook. The Mastiff name stuck. Billy Aiken has donated the Leo-Lite to the LHS Alumni Association.

 

Welcome to  the home page of the alumni of the original Lyons High School in Lyons, Georgia. We offer this website free to fellow graduates and hope that each of you will help make it a success.

Although the offspring of LHS have dispersed all over the planet, this website has reunited us in one place in cyberspace and allowed us to once again walk the halls of ole LHS, meet in the breezeway, go to the canteen  and catch up on the latest happenings in the lives of our classmates. We are united again!

Help spread the news. If you know of someone who ever attended LHS at any time before it merged with Lyons Industrial High School to become Lyons Senior High School, invite them to this site to join the fun.
