As you and your classmates start to plan your Class Reunion, please let us know so we may post Class Year, Reunion Date, and Contact Information.
You may submit class reunion information to Erika Shoolbred Cox, Director of Information Services.
The first (and arguably most important and hardest) step to planning a reunion is finding your classmates. I advise one start with social media and professional networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn. Create a group for your graduating class on Facebook (if one doesn’t already exist), and spread the word. You can also find and contact people and fellow alumni for instance on LinkedIn by clicking on “Find Alumni” in the “Connections” tab. Then I suggest locking down date. The most popular times for our high school reunions are September and October, because of Homecoming and football games, and around Thanksgiving or Christmas, when classmates are already home for the holidays.
Then forming a committee with a chair, a treasure, a promoter and a producer is vital. The best planned events for SHS reunions have used online ticketing platforms like Eventbrite or Ticketbud.
When reunion details have been finalized they can be shared here, and we encourage planning committees to also continue to use social media.

Spartanburg High School Class of 1970 - 50 Year Reunion POSTPONED
The members of the SHS Class of 1970 have postponed the 50th Year Reunion, scheduled for Oct 3, 2020, because of the novel coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing nature of the threat.
Based on public health guidance, it’s unclear when the situation will return to normal and will be able to proceed with reunion planning. However, the Class of 1970 encourages those with Facebook to connect with each other on the Spartanburg High School Class of 1970 group, and to connect through the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
