Class Reunions

Photo above: Members of the MHS Class of 1977 together for their 40th reunion.

The Marion School Foundation & Alumni Association was happy to assist with 12 class reunions in 2017. If your class is hosting a reunion in 2018, contact Jeff Kost, Alumni Relations Director for assistance at (319) 377-4691 x1106 or

We appreciate any help reunion committees can provide in updating our database of names and addresses. You can also share photos from your reunions and we will add them to our photo gallery. We encourage classes to schedule their reunions during the City of Marion’s Swamp Fox Festival to take advantage of the activities. This year’s dates are September 29-30.

We also hope alumni groups will take part in the Marion Foundation Golf Classic that Friday, September 28th. We are happy to make special arrangements for alumni groups to make your participation a wonderful experience. If not all classmates are golfers, we also appreciate volunteers. Proceeds from events like these allow us to keep our alumni database subscription, assist with reunion print materials, send our semi-annual newsletter and more.
