 George Washington Carver Senior High School celebrated their 21st annual homecoming festivities on October 14, 1978 at Tad Gomely Stadium. For this year, the festivities were dedicated to Ronald (Ceasar) Tassin.

                                                              WHO IS RONALD (CEASAR) TASSIN?

Ronald was a four (4) year starter of the Carver Rams football team and the last two (2) of those years were spent as team captain. He made All District two (2) years straight and was a candidate for All-American.

 At the end of his career with the Carver Rams, Ronald was offered between twenty (20) and thirty (30) scholarships throughout the United States, his choice, Alcorn State University. Alcorn is a historically Black college located in the western – central part of Mississippi. Alcorn is rated as having a fairly good football team. Ronald was to start in his first year. His dream never came true. Ronald (Ceasar) Tassin died by drowning on August 1, 1978. Ronald was the son of the late Mr. Joseph Tassin Sr. and Mrs. Willie Mae Tassin, a resident of this community and a member of St. Phillip Catholic Church for over twenty (20) years. He had eight (8) brothers and sisters; Barbara Ceasar Age, Ursula Ceasar Morgan, Gloria Ceasar, Leonard Ceasar Jr., Beverly Tassin Haynes, Joseph (Ceasar) Tassin Jr., Gilbert (Ceasar) Tassin, and Grace (Ceasar) Tassin.

 The Rams, in a convincing win over the Clark Bulldogs 40-8, gave the winning football to the mother of Ronald, Mrs. Willie Mae Tassin. With tears in her eyes and rolling down her cheeks, while being swarmed by the whole team and coaching staff, Mrs. Tassin stood tall and proud as cameras flashed and the principal of George Washington Carver Senior High School, Herbert J. McCullum, handed her the game ball and a gentle kiss on the cheek. 

CARVER'S HOMECOMING '78 - A Special Dedication: Ronald (Ceasar) Tassin




                                                        By: Curtis VanBuren

 The Carver Rams delighted a homecoming day crowd of better than 10,000 people with an outstanding 40-8 trouncing of cross town rivals J. S. Clark Senior High School. RB Michael Jones ran for three touchdowns and the passing of Hollis Brent to the Smith connection took the bite out of the “junk yard dogs”. High on homecoming fever the Rams defense took control of the contest early when DE Terrol Wright block a punt to set up the first of Jones’ touchdowns. Defensively the Rams made it a long afternoon for the “Dogs” as they totally overwhelmed the offense. The homecoming had special meaning for the Rams and their fans as the team dedicated the game and game ball to the mother of Ronald (Ceasar) Tassin. In a special half-time ceremony Mrs. Tassin was presented the game ball by the Rams coaches and players. We at this time would like to extend our best wishes to Mrs. Tassin and her family from the Carver Rams and their fans.
