Class Reunions

  • 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, Director of Information Services. 

    Reunion Tips 

    The first (and arguably most important and hardest) step to planning a reunion is finding your classmates. I advise one to 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 the 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 treasurer, a promoter and a producer is vital. The best planned events for SHS reunions use 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.

Cruising Through 2022 - Spartanburg High School Class of 2051 Reunion

  • The Spartanburg High School Class of 1951 gathered during the day on Saturday, May 28, to celebrate their 71st Reunion! 

    Although there have been remarkable changes in America in the decades since this class was young, despite the changes, this group has held on to the best values and outlooks of their growing-up years. There were 294 students in this graduating class and about a third are still alive, beating life-expectancy odds, and around 15, now in their late 80s, attended this reunion at the Piedmont Club. Unlike a several-day reunion event with a football game, a dance and formal dresses, the 2022 reunion consisted only of a luncheon highlighted by lots of storytelling. A professional photographer captured the moment, nonetheless, and we can't wait to share the photos with you. 

     

     

    District 7 was delighted to be privy to these reunion plans.  If your class has upcoming reunion plans, please reach out to Erika Shoolbred at 864-205-2004 or elshoolbred@spart7.org
