  • Well I was born in a small town
    And I live in a small town
    Probably die in a small town
    Oh, those small communities

    All my friends are so small town
    My parents live in the same small town
    My job is so small town
    Provides little opportunity

    Educated in a small town
    Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
    Used to daydream in that small town
    Another boring romantic that's me

    But I've seen it all in a small town
    Had myself a ball in a small town
    Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
    Now she's small town just like me

    No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
    I cannot forget the people who love me
    Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
    And people let me be just what I want to be

    Got nothing against a big town
    Still hayseed enough to say
    Look who's in the big town
    But my bed is in a small town
    Oh, and that's good enough for me

    Well I was born in a small town
    And I can breathe in a small town
    Gonna die in this small town
    And that's probably where they'll bury me

Every time I think of Nyssa this song comes to my mind. I love that I came from Nyssa. Since the years of my high school graduation, I have talked to others about their high schools and their graduations. Their experiences seem cold and alienating. They graduated from classes of 1,000 not knowing most of their classmates or carrying to and have little attachment to their high schools or hometowns. Oh, they had attachments to parents and siblings maybe a friend or two but none of them came from small-town and none of them talked with the fondness of memories that I had.
Actually, my school, my church, and my friends were my foundation and my salvation. Without Nyssa and its deeply religious culture of the 60’s and even into the 70’s I would have never found the love of G-d. Actually, I don’t think I ever met a person who did not believe in G-d until I left Nyssa. They just did not exist as far as I knew. I am sure that Nyssa has changed with the times. I am bracing myself for next summer when I come to the reunion and find people who actually live in Nyssa who do not believe in G-d. People who do not go to church.
I do love this part of being from Nyssa. No matter how many naïve religious debates I involved myself in the past, the basis of conservative, G-d loving Nyssa was a gift. It would be for anyone. No matter if that person moves on to another belief system or not a solid foundation is always good.
And our education! Good ole Nyssa High School. We were so fortunate! I think that there were a few teachers I would say we're not completely dedicated in Nyssa. Many were a big part of the larger community. We saw them in church, we saw them at games, we saw them at community events. They were dedicated. Well, my friends, there will be another blog later for right now Cheryl and I would appreciate it if you would pass on information about the Nyssa reunion next summer, and please don’t forget to sign up to volunteer! #Nyssa Reunion, #Nyssa was a gift, #Nyssa and G-d, #Nyssa and G-d, #Nyssa High School

Hello Everyone,

     I would like to see if anyone from the Nyssa School system would like to help with the 2022 All Class Reunion?  I know that the CLASS OF 1966 is planning on having its 55th-year reunion.   I sure hope the peers of the class of 1978 can make it that all.

     Well, if anyone is able and willing to help with the event, I know that all would greatly appreciate your help.  Don't hesitate to get in touch with Patsy Wilson by phone at 208-740-0270 or email: nyssareunions@gmail.com. 

     Do not be surprised to see some changes to the site and how we are changing with the times.  We are all trying to work together in making this something for everyone.

     If you do not want to help but would like to suggest something, please don't hesitate to have someone tell us or send us a message.   We can keep secrets just like when we were young.


Cheryl (Pounds) Ziegler
Secretary-Treasurer
