Bainbridge High School alumni reunion set for June 26
The 106th-annual Bainbridge High School (BHS) Alumni Association banquet is set for Saturday, June 26 at the Bainbridge Community Building.
The welcome hour will begin at 4:30 p.m. with a buffet dinner following at 5:30 p.m.
The program will be highlighted by the recognition of the sixth- and seventh-annual BHS Alumni Association scholarship winners. Josie Lyons, a 2020 North Putnam High School graduate, was the scholarship winner last year and is the daughter of Greg and Brenda Lyons. This year’s scholarship is being awarded to Reghan Christy, a member of the 2021 North Putnam High School graduating class and the daughter of Tad and Dawn Christy.
Classes to be honored this year include 1945-46 (75 years since graduation), 1950-51 (70 years since graduation) and 1960-61 (60 years since graduation).
Thursa Evens from the class of 1945 will also make a few comments and introductions for some of the earlier classes. Responding for the class of 1960 will be Dorothy Bettis Lukenbill. Keith Lukenbill will be speaking for the class of 1961.
Carl Ferrand from the BHS class of 1964 will recognize the vocational agriculture program that existed from 1952 to 1969, when the school was consolidated into North Putnam High School. Several state and a couple national champion 4-H/FFA judging teams came out of the program.
The public may purchase tickets for the banquet until June 12 by contacting Treasurer Joe Martin at 765-301-9092. All alumni are welcome to bring guests, and anyone who attended BHS or has an interest in the school is welcome to attend.
