Apple CEO Tim Cook in high school: Most studious, plaid pants, War Eagle (Gallery)

Some fine images from CEO Tim Cook’s high school days [1975-6] via Redditor whitbaker

Tim Cook attended the same high school as my mother, and she spoke highly of him. These are pictures from the 1975 and 1976 yearbooks from Robertsdale High School in Robertsdale, AL. She passed away in February 2011, but was following his success in Apple, and was quite proud (she was two years older). She served as editor of the yearbook her senior year, and he was part of the yearbook staff. Also, while in high school, he worked for my grandfather’s independent pharmacy in town. He passed it down to my mother, and I am currently working there now. I hope you guys enjoy these old pictures, I thought it was cool to see someone so successful back in the day! Auburn fans, notice the “War Eagle” on the last page!

[re: Your/You’re] Haha yes, he sure did! He was a tenth grader at the time, so I guess we can let him slide. And yes, we are from a small town in south Alabama, and he is our claim to fame, I guess. His parents still do business at our drug store, and my uncle actually saw him in Starbucks during the holidays and introduced himself. I was jealous! :)
