We are asking members of the Class of 1971 to submit stories for LIFE EVENTS — stories about what has transpired in your life since high school. Include whatever you feel is significant about your experience over the last 50 years. Also, please include a photo you would like to share.


Once we start receiving submissions to LIFE EVENTS, we will post each story and the photos on this page for all to enjoy.


We look forward to reading the story of your journey.
