Jones Valley High School was established in the Powderly community in 1921 by the Jefferson County Schools system and in 1953 became a part of the Birmingham City Schools system. JVHS remained a high school until the late 1980s when it became Jones Valley Middle School. A special thanks to the generosity of Bob Roper who made this database possible. He located, borrowed, and scanned all the available yearbooks from 1922-1926, 1927-1930, and 1946-1978 and donated a copy of the scanned images to the Birmingham Public Library.
