Clermont High School Alumni witnessed a weekend of nostalgia and friendship as more than 300 CHS alumni, faculty and staff gathered to celebrate their shared history at the Clermont High School reunion. The weekend was filled with activities aimed at reminiscing about the good old days.

The festivities kicked off on Friday morning, April 26, with Mychael Bennett spearheading a golf tournament open to all Clermont High School graduates, friends, and family. Later that evening, the Class of ’74 organized a Meet & Greet event at the Clermont Brewing Company, providing an opportunity for attendees from various classes to mingle and catch up.

Saturday, April 27, the alumni celebration continued at the Living Hope, Wesley Center where, during the Annual CHS All-Class Reunion luncheon, special recognition was given to the 50th graduating class, commemorating their milestone achievement and contributions to the school’s legacy.

Later that evening the class of 74 met at Green Valley Country Club to celebrate the 50th reunion where a casual buffet was offered along with tunes spun by DJs of the era, Mychael Bennett and Mike Cox. Laughter and memories flew freely throughout the reunion.

The reunion weekend also served as an occasion for giving back, as the Clermont High School Alumni awarded $1,000 scholarships to deserving students –  Ashley Archambault, Kayden Page, Logan Kuharske, Avery Wicker, and Phillip Slack.  

The success of the reunion weekend was made possible by the efforts of the Reunion Committee which included Larry Anderson, Martha Richard, June Resler, Kim Noak, Alfred Gordon, Evelyn Smith, Monica McEwan, Benson Hartle, Greg Homan, Abraham Johnson, Nancy Allison, Joy Albrecht, Mary Anne Meeker, Mary Hix, Sharon Keys, Beryl Fuller, Greg Watson, Mally Cox, and Norma Honey.

The weekend ended and attendees departed with magical memories, and a sense of Clermont High pride.  Though the school is gone, the timeless bonds that unite the Clermont High School alumni family remain.  Go Highlanders!
