Upcoming 50-Year Reunion (2020)

Hard to believe, but it has been almost 50 years since we crossed that stage to collect our diplomas.

We have had Reunions before, but this is “The BIG ONE”!

Maybe you’ve been to one Reunion, perhaps all, or maybe you’ve never been able to attend. Maybe you’re gung-ho and can’t wait, but maybe you are just not sure. Wherever you find yourself, this is “The Big One” not to miss! The committee is planning events for Friday night, Saturday day and Saturday night.   For most of us, hopefully, the angst of high school has long ago dissipated and been replaced by remembering the joys of our youth. Now we can suffer from the angst of turning 65+.  So come on, let’s celebrate this milestone together. We all knew how to “party” back in 1970, so keep up the tradition !!

The weekend will start on Friday night, October 2 with Longhorn Chit Chat and Libations at Austin’s Bar-B-Que. Followed by a Saturday, October 3 Golf Outing with details coming soon. We are still in the planning stages for an informal Step Back In Time Walk through the halls of the W. T. White building and campus. If you have not seen the changes to the building and grounds you will be amazed. The BIG ONE event will be Saturday night, October 3. Specific details below:

I'm Still Undecided

I Will Not Be Attending Reunion

If the cost of the Friday or Saturday night events poses a financial dilemma for you, contact Linda Haworth Nichols lknichols52@gmail.com. No one should miss this memorable Reunion based on financial circumstances. We take care of our own. Arrangements will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

Need a hotel room? –Pay attention former students as this is time sensitive information!

We have a block of rooms reserved at the Doubletree by Hilton at a special rate of $129 per night (plus hotel occupancy and sales taxes). You may choose to stay one or two nights.  To secure this special rate you MUST make reservations by calling the Doubletree Hotel directly at 972-419-7607 (no 800 numbers or online reservation methods) before September 1, 2020.  You MUST request the W. T. White 50th Reunion Class of 1970  block to secure this special rate. After September 1, the rate will change to the prevailing rate and be subject to availability. Book EARLY!

So, there you have, it. The first info on our 50th! Act quickly to send your registration forms and become an official attendee!!

Please keep your own profile information current (i.e., email, postal address, phone, etc.). Click here to update your own profile information.

WE NEED EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR SOME CLASSMATES! For a number of classmates, we have postal addresses but no email addresses. Because we have limited funds for postal mailings, these classmates receive no announcements from us in many situations. Do you happen to have an email address for them? Click here to see a list of the classmates for whom we have no email address.

AND PLEASE HELP US FIND OUR MISSING CLASSMATES! Look at our list of missing graduates and let us know if you have any idea of their whereabouts. Maybe we can find them all by the 50th reunion.

We are going to be asking all classmates for a current photo so 50 years later it will be somewhat easier to match a name to a person. Please email high-resolution images to info@wtwhite70.com. They will be cropped to a 3 x 4 (W x H) aspect ratio similar to the yearbook photos.

See you in October 2020!!!

Signed, the WTW70 Reunion Committee
