This year, we’re switching things up a bit. Instead of our annual reunion luncheon at the high school, we’ll be throwing a reunion block party on Saturday night in downtown Big Rapids. Come and join us as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Big Rapids High School with food, beer, and live entertainment in the heart of your hometown. Alumni of all class years are welcome and encouraged to attend.
As part of the annual all-class reunion program, we’ll also be honoring Rick Steinke, Class of ‘74, as the 2019 recipient of the BRHS Distinguished Alumni Award and awarding the BRHS Alumni Association Scholarship to a graduating senior.
If your class is holding a reunion during the first weekend in August, we highly encourage you to include this Saturday night event in your plans.
More information about Saturday night entertainment as well as other reunions held in conjunction with this event will be posted as it becomes available.
As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any information to share.
We'll always be true to the Red and the Blue.
The purpose of this website is to serve as a centralized information resource for alumni and faculty of Big Rapids High School located in Big Rapids, Michigan. We hope you will use it to find friends, catch up on what’s new about class reunions/activities, and to keep us informed of what you’ve been doing since leaving BRHS.
