Watch the clock!
Make your plans now...Days left 'till the 35th!...
While there is no "official" reunion planned this time, reach out and say hello to your fellow alumni.
Mr. Marshall says,
DHS79 On FaceBook!
Many of your fellow Alumni are now on FaceBook! With more than 200 out of 485 in our class, its time you get in the game, join FaceBook, and re-connect with your Alumni friends.
Also, don't forget to keep us up to date here at the web site. Update your contact information, write up your favorite DHS memories, and send us news. Let's also work on that 'Lost List' so those who are lost can be found again!
30th Reunion a Spectacular Success
On August 8, 2009 the DHS class of 1979 held their 30th reunion at the Dearborn Country Club. We had 113 Alumni with 27 guests and three teachers show - not bad out of a graduation class of 485!
Tim "The Veep" Rauh pulled off another spectacular event. Read all about it and see the pictures under our Reunions - 30th section.
Teachers get "A+" for Attendance!
At 95 with no signs of slowing down, Ms. Wolfe partied-down with the DHS class of 1979 during our 30th reunion. Ms. Wolfe is quite the party animal, attending another reunion earlier in the day and then heading over to our reunion in the evening. She was thrilled to be part of it, joined in watching the homecoming fireworks and was one of the last to leave at 12:30am.
Original DHS at Garrison
Ms. Wolfe started teaching at the original Dearborn High School location at Garrison avenue and Mason street that eventually became Ray H. Adams Jr. High (opened in 1925, closed in 1985). She then moved over to the current Outer Drive location when it was built in 1956. She is probably the last surviving teacher who started at the original DHS.
Tony Russo, band leader extrodinare, was also on hand to help us celebrate our 30th. With a twinkle in his eye and that musicality in every step, you can't help but have fun and a good time when Tony Russo is around. He adds grace-notes to our symphony of fun!
And Russ Gibb, never shy to tell-it-like-it-is . . . or at least as he sees it!, was another teacher, mentor and friend who came to have fun and re-connect with his students. Like an arrow flying towards its target, Russ Gibb always has a point to make!
Our class truly had a little more "class" that night because of the presence of these fine instructors, and we send out a big "Thank You" to them for their attendance.
February - 2016
Punxsutawney Phil says spring is not far off!
Dearborn High School - Dearborn, Michigan
Class of 1979 - Official Web Site
Dearborn High School
Welcome to the Dearborn High School Class of 1979 Webpage!
Our goal is to provide a gathering place for DHS1979 Alumni, to keep and share our cherished memories, and a source of information for keeping in contact.
We have a Reunion section that contains pictures starting from our graduation night and continuing up to the most recent reunion. That's the idea anyway - you'll see that we still have some work to do!
Alumni Sez... is where your special Memories about DHS are kept and were current Comments are made.
We also have a section called "Patronage" that promotes Alumni businesses and organizations. This gives us a chance to support our fellow Alumni, their spouse and family. Patronage is also located under the Alumni Sez menu.
Hey, watch your step!
You can submit your Memories, Comments, Patronage, or other ideas and suggestions using the "Submit Your Thoughts" from the Alumni Sez menu.
Alumni Links has email contact information for Alumni to keep in touch with each other. This is a protected area and you will be asked for a username and password, which any good Pioneer should be able to figure out.
Also there is the dreaded 'lost list' which we hope to eliminate with your help, by finding all of our Alumni...Don't make us put your picture in the post office or on milk cartons, turn yourself in!
Use the Update your Info from the Alumni Links menu to provide and keep current your contact information.
Home of the Pioneers
We also list other Dearborn High School Alumni sites, and encourage other classes to provide us with their website location so we can expand upon this.
There are many ways to keep in touch with your fellow Alumni, and we hope you look upon this web site as a central location to archive the memories, keep current with Alumni news, and plan for future reunions and get-togethers. It is important that you keep us up-to-date so we can let you know planned future events!
Partying at the 30th
What an amazing couple of days we shared! You really make this all worth it when you show up, laugh, dance and smile. The ice breaker on Fri was full of drama and surprise, only part of which I will ever divulge. As a hint...
