Here's a pic of my good friend from high school Mr. William E. Brackeen.
He was a prodigy in Jr. High School and was well known even back then for his ability to play anything he heard on the piano.
William and I had French II and sat on the back row with another friend, John McCrary.
We had a blast sitting on the back row and still made good grades.
One of my best memories is having "Arm Wrestling for Your Pocket Change Money" contests from time to time.
They never understood how a skinny white boy could keep beating them.
But they were skinny too, so the playing field was fairly even.
Obviously there were no jocks in that class or we would have all been in trouble.
William entertained us with some of his favorite hymns.
These days he's a Music/Piano/Choir Instructor at Langston University in Oklahoma.
