The goal of past reunion committees has been to hold a reunion that is enjoyable, yet is reasonably priced so as many classmates as possible will choose to attend and to reserve some funds to support ongoing website costs and preparations for the next reunion. We’ve also been able to do something meaningful as a class to positively impact the lives of others by providing West High student scholarships and made a donation in memory of our deceased classmates.

    Hopefully everyone will find enjoyment and value from the information provided on this website. The 30th reunion committee incurred expenses to set up the website and we intend to keep the website up and running indefinitely.
