Berea High School All Alumni Reunion This Saturday, 2:30 – 5:30 pm
Governor Nikki Haley has proclaimed August 23, 2014, as Berea High School Day throughout the state.
August has not only brought current students and teachers back to Berea High School but also former students, faculty, and others friends of the school. An All-Alumni BHS Reunion will be held Saturday afternoon, August 23, from 2:30 to 5:30, at the school.
Organized by a committee of alumni, the event is open to students from every decade who attended Berea as well as to former staff, coaches, and administrators. Other supporters of the school are also encouraged to attend.
Governor Nikki Haley has proclaimed August 23, 2014 as Berea High School Day throughout the state. The proclamation encourages all South Carolinians to celebrate the many contributions of Berea alumni, staff, and teachers who have been part of the school’s rich history, and will be officially presented to the school during the reunion.
Exhibits and videos highlighting Berea’s rich history will be included as part of the afternoon’s agenda. The primary focus, according to Sharon Davenport Mahaffey (Class of ’66) and one of the organizers of the reunion, is for alumni and other friends of the school to have the opportunity to reconnect with classmates and to meet others in the Bulldog family.
Berea’s roots as a school in the northwest part of Greenville County go back to the nineteenth century. It officially became a high school in 1911 and celebrated its centennial three years ago. The school is located at 201 Burdine Drive.
