Hampton’s Bethel High School to Hold Mega Reunion 2018 August 24-26

May 04, 2018 |

August 24-26, Bethel High School graduates are encouraged to head to Hampton for the Bethel High School Mega Reunion 2018, taking place at the Hampton Roads Convention Center. Beginning Monday, August 20, a week of activities are planned for returning graduates, including Success Through Unity: The Bethel High School Story  at the Hampton History Museum, a brand new exhibit featuring sports memorabilia from Bethel High graduates, including Allen Iverson, Francena McCorory, Mike London, and more. Other highlights including A Stroll Along the Hampton River Walkway at Bull Island Brewery and Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina Hotel, and a Midtown Mixer at Peninsula Town Center, and more. Cost is $125 per person for a three day pass (Ticket price covers events August 24-26, all other activities are free and open to the public).

In 1968, Bethel High School opened to accommodate overcrowding at Hampton High School and Kecoughtan High School. The school was the first fully integrated school in the City of Hampton.

“Though there were a lot of racial tensions in many schools across the country at the time, the students at Bethel High School managed to overcome these tensions through collective collaboration in both academics and athletics,” said Bethel High Mega Reunion Group President, Michael Harper. “This year we are happy to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bethel High School by once again coming together and painting the City of Hampton Green and Gold.”
