As part of Elvis Week 2013, on Tuesday August 13th, Elvis Presley, along with high school classmates George Klein and Red West, will have a plaque dedicated in their honor at Humes High School in Memphis.
Elvis Presley's friend, George Klein, announced this on his recent SiriusXM's Radio show.
Radio DJ George Klein, nicknamed "GK" by Elvis, met Presley in the 8th grade at Humes High School and remained good friends with The King until his death. Elvis was the best man at Klein's wedding. Red West, an actor and songwriter, worked as a bodyguard for Elvis and was part of Elvis' entourage, known as the 'Memphis Mafia'.
Because Elvis Presley graduated from Humes, the high school is on the National Register of Historic Places. The school now houses the Humes Middle School. Due to the low student population in that area, the city has plans to turn it into a performing arts school.
The dedication ceremony will take place during Elvis Week 2013 celebration in Memphis. The ceremony starts at 10 AM with George Klein in attendance.
