R L Osborne High School
Class Of 1971

HOLD THE DATE:   APRIL 30, 2022

 

   💥Greetings Class of ‘71!💥 

 

 Hope everyone is doing well and having a great summer! 

Since things appear to be settling down from the pandemic (no jinx), we wanted to gauge interest in proceeding with plans for our 50th reunion. 

In terms of location, there was general agreement that the Hilton Marietta Conference Center would be good if we can work out terms and conditions. We’ll use this as a planning assumption. 

Since it’s already mid-way through 2021, could we consider around March-April 2022 so as to avoid hopefully winter conditions? 

Another suggestion that is being considered is pursuing both individual and business sponsorships for the reunion. This would help offset the total cost making it less expensive thereby hopefully improving attendance. While we don’t have any details on this, we thought putting the idea out there for input would be helpful. 

Please let us know your thoughts and the likelihood of your attendance. We are very excited that we’re getting this back on track.  

After all, we ARE THE CLASS OF ‘71!

In the heart of old Cobb County
Reared against the skies
Proudly stands our alma mater
As the years go by
Osborne High School we will honor
True and loyal be
Ever crowned with grace and glory
Osborne, hail to thee.......... -Ruby Hildebrand, 1936

 

 As the oldest high school in Cobb County, R. L. Osborne has served as a cornerstone of our community for more than 120 years. Established as Olive Springs Community School in 1881, the building was comprised of a single room serving grades one through eight.  Housed in the Olive Springs Baptist Church, little is known about the history of the community school until 1919. As a member of a faculty of only three, Mr. Robert L. Osborne became Principal of Olive Springs Community School in 1919. Over the next nine years, Mr. Osborne worked tirelessly to serve a growing population.  In 1928, Olive Springs moved from its original location at Olive Springs Baptist Church to Joyner Avenue.  As the new school opened on September 10, 1928, it employed ten teachers and served 350 students in grades one through nine. In 1936, recognizing and honoring Mr. Osborne's commitment to the community, Olive Springs School was renamed Robert L Osborne School.In 1928, R. L. Osborne became a fully accredited Senior High School. R. L. Osborne's first graduating class in 1939 boasted 25 members, 13 boys and 12 girls. As the school moved to its present location on Favor Road in 1962, Mr. Osborne retired. His 49 years of service helped to both shape and impact the Osborne community for generations to come.
