Two veteran Red Elephant alumni are planning a trip down memory lane when Gainesville High School celebrates its 125th anniversary next month. History will be front and center for the open house that will attract visitors near and far to mark the milestone event. One of the first calls that went out through social media from organizers was a request for historical memorabilia, said Jeff Pierce, a member of the graduating class of 1981 who has taken on the role of historian for the big reunion.
