Class of 1963 Reunion Statistics
Statistically speaking, out of the 119 graduates from City High, 77 have attended at least one of the four reunions in 1973, 1983, 1988, and 2005. One attended that would have been a graduate, making the total 78. If you count the students that (coulda/shoulda/woulda) have actually been a member of the 1963 alumni, you have a total of approximately 200 elgible members. This gives us a final percentage factor of 39.% of the eligible members that attended the four class reunions. These calculations do not take into consideration some the individuals that are unidentified at the 2005 reunion. If any names need to be corrected, notify me.
