About the Reunion

Golden Years Society Reunion is an annual event and tradition of Northwest that honors graduates from 50 years or prior. This year, the Golden Years Society will honor the class of 1969 and any graduates from previous years. A variety of events will be held throughout Homecoming weekend to celebrate 50 years since members of the class of 1969 received their diplomas. 

We have many events planned for your return trip “home” to Northwest. You certainly are not obligated to attend each event; however, we do hope you’ll participate in those activities that will involve the Class of ’69 on Friday. If you are interested in obtaining tickets, please call Carma Kinman at the Michael L. Faust Center for Alumni and Friends at 660.562.1249 to ensure your reservation to any of our Homecoming weekend activities.
