#ThrowbackThursday

July 16, 2015

Excitement overwhelms Riley Sawyers as he marvels at his ability to make the perfect pitcher of tea! This was just one of the many life skills taught to Sweetwater High School’s Class of 1985. In the last 30 years, Riley also perfected his skills as a rattlesnake hunter with the Sweetwater Jaycees. He appeared on Rattlesnake Republic, a Discovery Channel program that features the adventures of rattlesnake hunters. Riley is on the planning committee for his 30 year reunion set for Sept. 4-5 and is encouraging his other classmates to join him for Homecoming.
