It is hoped that each Class staging a Reunion will try to do something to help Reynolds High School. This can be accomplished in a lot of ways....one of the best being the raising of money (the donations of which are tax deductible if they go directly to the school or to the "RJ Reynolds High School Alumni and Friends" organization).
As an example of what can be accomplished: the RJR Class of 1968 established a scholarship 10 years ago (via the Winston-Salem Foundation) in memory of their classmates that have passed away. (Two $1,000 scholarships go to deserving RJR seniors with a financial need). They recently had their 40th reunion, and came up with the idea of trying to raise $40,000! They didn't. THEY RAISED OVER $68,000....AND NOW HAVE OVER $125,000 IN THEIR SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT....which means these scholarships will now pay $5,000 each!
Should you have any questions concerning this, feel free to send an e-mail to Harry Corpening (President of the Alumni and Friends organization, and a member of the Class of '68) by clicking here.
