“Our goal is to reconnect alumni with the Summit community and to showcase all that the school system, downtown, performing arts, and athletic events have to offer,” stated Peter Laughlin, Hilltopper Alumni Weekend committee member and SHS class of ’75 grad.  “Summit is a great place to live and a great place to visit, we want to remind alumni of this and have them ‘come home’ and enjoy it all.” he added.

This weekend is the perfect opportunity for SHS graduated classes to join in the fun and plan their reunion and get your friends back to Summit.  Please visit for more information or Kim Bredahl at to find out more and help make the weekend one to remember!
