Havana High School graduates from four decades hold Grand Reunion

Havana High School’s Grand Reunion took place Saturday, April 21 at the Havana Country Club.

A total of about 200 attendees, ranging from the Class of 1944 to the Class of 1973, attended the event.

Speakers from various classes shared a few words with the group about their memories of the school. John  E. Woodbery, Class of 1958, shared his thoughts about the reunion in an Opinion piece on page A4 of this issue.

A sample of class photos are featured below.

Havana High usually has these grand reunions every three years. As an extra added attraction for this reunion, the recently-opened Havana History & Heritage Museum in downtown Havana featured a special exhibit with items related to Havana High School.
