Panola College Yearbook Archives

Panola College's The Pony yearbook was first published in 1950 and was published annually through 1990. Due to the lack of student support and the rise of social media, The Pony was discontinued. The Pony did briefly return in 2017 with one final yearbook. Photos from Panola College events, performances, and games are now archived on the Panola College Flickr account.

We are currently missing copies of the yearbooks from 1951, 1981, 1983, and 1984. If you have a copy of one of these years, please contact us at


The Alumni Association will help you meet new people, give you networking opportunities, and allow you to stay connected to your classmates and what is happening at Panola College.
