Benson High School Combined Reunion

June 15, 2019

     In June, 1969, the last senior class graduated from Benson High School. Although it has been 50 years since Benson High School closed its doors, it is still our high school and many fellow graduates think that our school deserves a Golden Anniversary Celebration.

     Therefore, you are invited to the Golden Anniversary Celebration of the closing of Benson High School. It will also be an excellent opportunity to see a lot of old friends. Since our first combined reunion in 2009, we have lost a lot of classmates. So take advantage of this Golden opportunity while you still can.

     The celebration will take place on Saturday, June 15, 2019, at the Barn at Broadslab Distillery, 4682 NC Hwy 50 South, Benson, North Carolina.  For additional details and a registration form, please click on the "2019 BHS Reunion Tab" on the navigation bar above this announcement.

Benson High School 
"Truly great friends are hard to find,
difficult to leave, and impossible to forget."
~ G. Randolf





Class Reunion
Close your eyes and see
Your friends as they used to be
Before life claimed them--
Drove them away from your side,
As it drove you far from them.

Listen to laughter,
The high pitched squeals of delight
At discoveries,
Exciting links to fresh life--
Deep, awakening tingles

Claimed your waking days
And led you to wild-eyed nights,
Alive, new essence
Coursed the high streets of your youth,
Out of control and with love.

Feel emotions rise
As neurons reconnect friends
To your current life;
Smell the fragrances of time
As you tread the path to them,

To the reunion
You're torn apart to attend
And find they're still gone,
Never to return to you
Though you hug and say, "hello!"

The past, the future
Swirl in a maddening dance;
You're alone again--
Conflicting earmark of youth
Regained of a moment's glance

'Til epiphany
Opens your eyes wide to see
The fullness ahead—
With a loving past as guide
To the cherished life you've built.
