So WJKEENAN wasn’t a damn high school in columbia sc??? Because yall have EVERY school listed but that school WHY???

I list the yearbooks that have been digitized and are made available online. It is either not digitized yet, or I have not found the link. Next time you comment, it would be appreciated if you were a bit nicer. I do this as a free service for folks to help them find things. I’m just the messenger.

Thanks, Josh. They have been added to my database. They will appear in my online list in my next update in a couple of months. Thank for letting me know. Much appreciated.
