Welcome to the Aquinas High Class of 1978 web site. Our 35th reunion was a great success,and everyone who attended was glad they did. We encourage you to utilize this site to continue to get reacquainted with each other. Let's shoot for even better attendance at the 40th!


One look around Glory Days on Friday night or the crowded ballroom at Piggy's on Saturday night would tell you that everyone had a great time reuniting with former classmates. Friday night's social may have been a bit more challenging since we opted to skip the name tags and let everyone just jump into the mingling but it didn't seem to stop anyone from having fun. Some surprise guests included Sean Dwyer, Lucille Knobloch Roskowiak and Cathy "Sparkles" Monsoor.

Many people played a part in the planning and execution of the weekend and we'd like to acknowledge and thank them:

You can even include current photos and videos. Click on Show Yearbook Photos for an instant blast from the past!


This class list was compiled from our Senior yearbook.  If you graduated with the class in 1978 but did not have your picture in the yearbook for some reason, please let us know so we can add you to the list!


In addition to the list of classmates, you will see a Guest Member section and you might not recognize all the names.  That's because we are including all those who attended at least one of the four years with us at Aquinas.  In the near future, we will be adding scans of our yearbook mug shot pages from Freshman, Sophomore and Junior year which will help jog our memories.  Perhaps you've stayed in touch with some of these classmates.  If so, please encourage them to join our page and create a profile so we can get reacquainted.


Does anyone have copies (or links to electronic versions) of the obituaries for Sam Sloggy and Brian Stall?  Does anyone know of any other deceased former classmates?
