Alumni Reuinion Draws Many Home to the ‘Hills- Gary Hatrick, Laker, July 8, 2009

Almost 400 alumni of Zephyrhills High School attended the 39th Annual ZHS ALumni, Teachers, and Friends Reunion held June 28 at the Lions Club in Zephyrhills.

“The reunion was for anyone who attended, taught or worked at Zephyrhills High School and their families,” said Clereen Morrill Brunty of the Class of ’73. “I think it went better than ever,” Brunty said, “there were a lot of new faces.”

Brunty has coordinated the alumni reunion dinner for about 21 years and has become a fixture to the former students who come from all over the United States to reacquaint themselves with fellow former classmates.

While Brunty has organized the dinner for many years, she does not do it alone. Working with her for the past eight years are PResident Phyllis Jarrett Denney, Class of ’73; Vice President Lenora Pollock Stokes, Class of ’64; Secretary Linda Locke Arrant, Class of ’78; and historian Margaret Seppanen, Class of ’56.

“We just keep getting re-elected every two years,” Brunty said. “We are a good team, we know what’s going on,” This year there was a new addition. Clayton Stokes, Class of ’60 was elected kitchen chairperson.

Reunion registration began at 11 a.m. with a pot-lick luncheon at 1 p.m. Recognition was given to notables like the oldest and youngest ZHS graduate present and the graduate who traveled the farthest as well as teachers past and present. Also classes having their special reunions were recognized.
