Class of 1968’s 50-Year Reunion

August 29, 2018 Alumni News

24 former students from the Class of 1968 gathered at Christmount in Black Mountain, North Carolina, from May 31 – June 3 to celebrate their 50-year reunion! We were so excited to hear about the success of the reunion and are encouraged by the school spirit that this class exudes.

Class member Elaine Mosser Boyer had the following to say about the reunion:

“We shared a wonderful time together, touring the old BLS campus, sharing memories and making memories. Several students and staff who were unable to attend in person were kept in the loop by phone calls, texts, and subsequent emails. For many who attended, this was their first alumni function and questions abounded: “Will it be awkward?” “What are we going to do with all these strangers?”

As the days unfolded, we laughed together, cried together, grew together and found healing grace.  The strangers who arrived on the 31st left on the 3rd as new friends with common memories.   Those relationships that were in the embryonic stages 50 years ago were solidified and strengthened. The consensus since then is that we need to repeat the reunion in 3 years.  All in attendance felt the Lord’s presence and renewal.”
