It's High School Reunion Season... Are You Going?

Emily Houston
Panorama High School's 2016 graduating class

If you have a high school reunion coming up this summer, are you looking forward to it or dreading it? We know you've thought about it; these questions are the stuff movies are made about, after all! During this hour of Talk of Iowa, we asked for your stories.  

According to Alan Mast, who now lives in Waterloo, it’s worth going. To start this hour, he recounts what he calls “his fairytale.” He reconnected with the woman who is now his wife at a high school reunion.

"We were on a tour of the old high school, and she just had this kind, patient look in her eye," he remembers. 

Then, Dave Olsen, President of the Alumni Association in Panora, Iowa, joins the show. Guthrie County has had a county wide alumni banquet since the 1880’s. Paul Lasley of Iowa State University, who is a professor of sociology also joins the show.
