High School superlatives have always been popular – Most Likely to Succeed, Best Looking Couple, Class Clown, Most Spirited Classmate – so it isn’t a surprise to see a few show up again at a high school reunion. The Glenbard East Class of 1977 had a lot of fun with their version of superlatives appropriate for classmates who are 40 years out of high school. — If you are planning to have a little fun at your classmates’ expense, it might be a good idea to include a nice bottle of wine with their new title. . . #glenbardeast #classof1977 #superlatives #firsttoretire #traveledthefarthest #agedthelease #lostthemosthair #changedtheleast #divorcedthemosttimes #highschoolreunion #reunionplanning #reunioncommittee #ithappenedatahighschoolreunion #eventplanner #eventplanning #varsityreunions

When the Proviso East Class of 1977 celebrated their 40-year reunion in September, they raised money for a reunion night give-a-way. All classmates received a Proviso East Pirate logo pen, magnet and key chain. Give-a-ways are a hit with classmates attending their reunion. Many classmates wait until right before and even the night of the reunion to purchase tickets, so be sure you order extras so everyone leaves with a fun memento of the event. #provisoeast #provisoeast1977 #provisoeastpirates #40yearreunion #classof1977 #highschoolreunion #giveaway #mementos #reunionplanning #varsityreunions

High School Reunion Wisdom – Part I
















High school reunions can be a great reality check for what we’ve learned and how far we’ve come since we were high school seniors just trying to figure out what to do in the next year, let alone for the rest of our lives. Too bad we didn’t realize then that we might still be wondering today what it is exactly we want to do when we grow up.

Growing older does have its benefits, though. We discover who we really are, learn from our mistakes, and while we don’t have it all figured out, we can at least understand that we don’t understand everything.

High school reunion wisdom is something you recognize as you begin approaching your high school reunion. You probably don’t have it all figured out just yet, but you’ve learned there is wisdom that comes from living your life as an adult, even if you don’t always feel like an adult.

Below are a few of our favorite reunion wisdom quotes. You are welcome to download and distribute these graphics on Facebook, Instagram, e-mail, or any other way you may find useful as you plan or plan to attend your high school reunion.

Check back next week and we’ll share 8 more high school reunion wisdom quotes. And if we’ve missed your favorite piece of reunion wisdom, let us know in the comments section.

Using Movie Quotes to Promote Your High School Reunion

Using Movie Quotes to Promote Your High School Reunion from  #reunionwisdom

I love movie quotes.  Always have.  A great movie quote can inspire you, make you laugh, remind you of another time in your life, or even teach you a lesson.

Some of the funniest, heartfelt, and true to life quotes are from movies about high school.  Think about “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.” from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or “We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.” from The Breakfast Club.  Both quotes have the ability to take us back to when we first saw the movie and who we were with, while also finding a way to encourage us or teach us a life lesson.

Okay, so what does this have to do with your high school reunion?

Because some movie quotes make a statement while also bringing back a ton of memories, why not use them to promote your high school reunion event?

We’ve put together a collection of some of our favorite movie quotes from movies about high school and made them into fun images your reunion committee may use to post on Facebook, Instagram, or use in your reunion e-mails and mailings.  Use the image to promote your reunion ticket sales, ask a “remember when” question, or post it as a reminder of a shared experience for your class.  Be sure to use the hashtag #reunionwisdom.

And check back next week when we’ll share 8 more movie quotes for you to use.
