Criteria for Reunions at Russellville High School
Russellville High School honors the "10 Year Class Reunion" each year with a reception in the Field House. Refreshments are provided by the Student Council. Persons present for the 10 year reunion and their family members will not be charged for game tickets. Those attending should park in the Russellville Elementary School parking lot. If you arrive after parking tickets are being sold, you will have to pay to park. A designated seating area will be reserved for you at the stadium.
Example, in Fall 2013, we will honor the class that graduated in May 2003.
For classes desiring to have a reunion such as 20-year, 30-year, etc., the school system is happy to provide facilities. The following guidelines have been established:
20 years - RHS Cafeteria
30 years - RHS Media Center
40 years - West Elementary School
50 years - Russellville Elementary School
The system will not be able to provide free tickets or parking to the classes having a reunion - only to the class being honored (10-year).
To have reserved seating, each class will be responsible for reserving a section at the stadium. The areas that can be reserved are the last two sections closest to the Field House.
To be recognized at the game, the class representative must provide a written announcement to the PA announcer prior to the game.
To participate in the homecoming parade, the class representative must notify Mike Powell, 256-331-2027.
