Welcome to our Great Bend High School Class of 1975 web site. It's been 45 years since we graduated from GBHS and we are still going strong.

We have created this web site to make it easy for us to get reacquainted and to stay in touch---plus communicate important 2020 reunion details!

This site is FREE to all GBHS class of 1975 alumni, teachers and invited guests. Unlike Classmates.com and the other sites, you do not have to pay to make a profile or to be able to access other alumni profiles.

If it is your first time to the web site, please click the following link How to Use This Site to create your individual profile.

If you are a registered classmate, welcome back! Enjoy looking at the profiles of old friends BUT don't forget to add/update your own photos and information!

If you are a visitor, thank you for visiting!

Thank you and enjoy!

Your site administrator, Scott Miller

Friends With You by John Denver

   What a friend we have in time
Gives us children, makes us wine
Tells us what to take or leave behind

And the gifts of growing old
Are the stories to be told
Of the feelings more precious than gold

Friends I will remember you, think of you
Pray for you
And when another day is through
I'll still be friends with you

Babies days are never long
Mother's laugh is baby's song
Gives us all the hope to carry on
Friends I will remember you, think of you
Pray for you
And when another day is through
I'll still be friends with you

Friends I will remember you,
Think of you, pray for you
And when another day is through
I'll still be Friends with You

Friends I will remember you,
Think of you, pray for you
And when another day is through
I'll still be Friends with You







"We all took different paths....
But every dirt road we’ve walked will lead us back to the friends that know us best.
The ones that will help you up and slap the dust off, without being asked".
~ T. Warne

It is indeed ironic that we spend our school days yearning to graduate and our remaining days waxing nostalgic about our school days." - Isabel Waxman

Dear Class of 1975,

In these very uncertain times, the Class of 1975 reunion committee has agreed to postpone the 45 year class reunion originally scheduled for Oct. 23-24, 2020 until next year.  We hope this gives the country and all of us time to know how things are going to work in the future days and months ahead.  We do want to plan a big celebration sometime next year and possibly change up how class reunions are typically held.  To help the committee, please notify us if your address changes.  It is a BIG help when it comes to locating and confirming all the addresses when we plan a reunion. So stay safe, be hopeful and watch for exciting news to come over the next few months.   We WILL get together again!

Rhonda Rexwinkle Penka and the reunion committee
