Gov. Thomas Johnson Class of 1985 Reunion Weekend

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years! The entire weekend of festivities is dedicated to supporting our school – Governor Thomas Johnson High School. The theme: Giving Back to TJ High.

As many of you are aware, right now the school’s booster club is undertaking a massive $1.1 million capital fundraising campaign to build a new turf field at the high school. Our weekend shall be dedicated to having fun and raising money toward this campaign. Our goal is to raise $5,000 so that we will have a bench in the new stadium emblazoned with “Class of 1985” on it!

The dates: July 24, 25 and 26th

We are still searching for lots of classmates! Please visit this list and update everyone you know!
