In addition to this great High School website, there is now a group on Facebook for only the Class of 1977. It's goal is support more direct conversations and memory revivals, search for "Joel E Ferris Class of 1977". It is a closed group but all Saxons or would have been Saxons in the Class of 1977 are accepted.
