Class of 1976 Honors the Life of Classmate John Robert Thomas
The Cassville High School class of 1976 has made a donation of $250 to the Cassville Schools Bright Futures Backpack program in memory of their classmate John Robert Thomas. John Robert is the youngest son of the late Aubrey and Eunice Holman Thomas. Cassville Primary is named after John Robert's mother, Eunice Thomas.
The Bright Futures Backpack Program provides nonperishable food items to children in the district that may need food assistance over the weekend. Bright Futures, established at Cassville Schools in 2011, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing community members together to focus on the success of children.
