Breaking: 1979 Matching Gift Challenge

An anonymous classmate will match commitments above our prior class record dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000—contingent on the class of 1979 setting a new Reunion record! If this challenge can be met, we have the chance to break the current 40th Reunion record of $120,437, held by class of 1967 for the past 12 years!

Hey 79ers! We can’t wait to celebrate our 40th reunion with each one of YOU!

Our memories include many aspects of our high school years…. Hanging out in the hut with Gladys (what exactly did “hut sponsors” do?), amazing Chorus and Ensemble performances led by Mr. Boggs, boys dodging Mr. Patton who was on perpetual lookout for untucked shirt tails and sockless boys (who knew that would be in style 40 years later?!), our amazing Football AAA State Champions, the fear of Flaschka, Derwood Fincher’s crazy Drama class, the thrill of Mardi Gras planning, the last class of “dorm” students and boy cheerleaders, meeting deadlines for Bi-Line, Embryo and the Lynx, our senior trip to Ft Lauderdale.….. we had the best of times!!! We hope everyone will make the effort to come back, share memories, rock out with 70’s music (the BEST music era!) and catch up with each other!

Whether or not you can join us on campus in April, we also hope you’ll help celebrate our 40th Reunion by making a special reunion year gift! Your support will honor your favorite teachers, coaches, and classmates and make a difference for current and future students. 

It’s a great day to be a Wildcat and a member of the Class of 1979!
