Alumni Support

Class of 1968 Raises Over $105,000

As part of their 50th reunion celebration, Myers Park alumni in the Class of 1968 gave generously to today's Mustangs by contributing over $105,000 to the Foundation.  George Wilson, who organized the class effort to support the Foundation, said "Our classmates genuinely believed that each one of them could be a part of their class changing lives at Myers Park High School, their high school, 50 years later.  There is something truly compelling about helping someone who is walking the same halls I did, who has nowhere near the advantages I had, succeed in perhaps the most important years of their life." .

We are grateful the Class of 1968 joins many other alumni classes who have chosen to celebrate graduation by giving back generously.

Class of '66 Gives to Foundation


November 21, 2016

In a night filled with laughter and warm reunions, the Myers Park High School Class of 1966 generously gave to the Myers Park High School Foundation as their class gift. Raising about $89,000, the Class of '66 gathered together to present the celebratory check to the Foundation Board. And that generous amount grew as classmates continued to raise the final total!

As class member Wanda Musgrave stated, the class wanted to give "more than bricks and mortar." The Class of '66 contributed to the future of current and future students, making a difference for the generations of Mustangs to come.

Check out the video! Here's an overview of the night. You'll also hear from proud class members Sadler Barnhardt, Nancy Bowen Wiggins, and Johnny Wilson about their contributions.

 

Connecting at Recent Reunions 1955, 1965 & 1985


December 1, 2015

Hundreds of alumni return for reunions wanting to see friends and stay updated on current happenings at Myers Park. Alumni get the satisfaction of seeing their own children and grandchildren make "The Park Their Own." Over 250 hundred MPHS stakeholders attend the annual MPHS Foundation luncheon. Look for a SAVE-THE-DATE soon.

The Foundation is grateful to both The Classes of 1985 (seen in picture Jennifer Willis, '85 Reunion Chair and Marinn Bengel, Foundation Chair) and 1955 for making gifts in memory of classmates. All donations go directly toward supporting a student in need toward the graduation line. Special thanks to these classes for connecting and continuing a "Tradition of Excellence!"
