Hey Bushton High Grad or Bushton Schools attendee,

It’s time to make plans to attend the 22st tri-annual alumni banquet.  Please note our Reunion activities will again be held at The Best Western – Angus Inn, Great Bend, KS.   The commons area of the motel will be available to us for all three days of the reunion. Be sure to bring your pictures, yearbooks and other memorabilia.  The commons area will also be used for the Alumni Association business meeting starting at 5:30 PM on Saturday with the Banquet to follow.  A buffet style meal will be catered by the Wheatland Café of Hudson, KS.

BushtonHighReunion.com is the website to get current information about the reunion.
Much of the same information about the reunion from the website on the following pages, but this will be your ONLY notice via U.S. mail, so the website will be a valuable resource for any new information. 

The BushtonHighReunion.com website has a Class List 1919-1976 that includes many addresses.  Email me (dhuebner@swbell.net) any changes of addresses that you may know of as soon as possible so that I can keep the list current.  You may also email me via the link “Email Chairman of Association” on the website.

Below is the REGISTRATION FORM to complete and return.  It will be great to see you there.

Bushton High School History:
The first graduating class of Bushton High School was in 1919. The last graduating class was in 1976.  Starting in the fall of 1976, the Bushton school building was then utilized as the high school building for Quivira Heights High School, being a consolidated school of students from the Bushton, Holyrood, and Lorraine areas and was part of USD#328. With bonds approved in 1997, part of the old building was torn down and a new building was provided. In 2011 the Quivira Heights schools at Bushton and Holyrood were consolidated with Claflin and the Central Plains school district was formed. The building facilities in Bushton are now used as the Central Plains Junior High facility.
Scholarship Fund
The original Bushton High School Scholarship Fund is now being given to graduates of Central Plains High School that are students from the Quivira Heights area. Any donations to this fund would be greatly appreciated.
