Summit High School Hosts Annual Alumni Lunch During Hilltopper Weekend

Graduates from all different years, including 1952, and current Junior Class President

SUMMIT, NJ - If someone had walked into the Summit High School cafeteria on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 20, he or she would have had the opportunity to meet Summit High School graduates ranging in age from the Class of 1952 to Class of 2007, all on hand to celebrate Hilltopper Weekend and enjoy Saturday's alumni lunch.

Towne Deli provided their signature Sloppy Joes and “Half and Half’ (half lemonade, and half iced tea). Alums enjoyed the fare, which they had enjoyed growing up in Summit. 

Current students from Summit High, who are on the school council, provided guided tours to the participants. All graduates pre-1962 hadn’t gone to high school in the current building; they had attended high school at what is now Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School.

Principal Paul Sears attended the alumni lunch, decked out in Summit gear, like most of the other alums, in preparation for the big, Homecoming game Saturday afternoon.

Many of the alums who grew up in Summit still live there to this day. Many have kids who are now in the Summit public school system. 

One alum, organizer of the weekend (Class of 1975), and father of a current Summit High School student, Peter Laughlin told the, “This organization is really a multi-generational alumni organization for Summit High School and what we are doing is we are creating a platform for graduates of Summit High School for decades to come to be able to come together and be a resource for the community and the school system.”
