BUFFALOES FOREVER BHS-RCHS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
The goal of the Belleville High School / Republic County High School Alumni Association is to support the school, connect alumni to the school and each other, and preserve the history of our communities. Your generosity, as tax deductible contributions, provides scholarships to graduating seniors and funds for school improvement projects. 2017 donors enabled the Alumni Association Scholarship Committee to grant almost $4,000 in scholarships. Thank you for your support of these projects and of the district. We have some very talented, intelligent and amazing students at Republic County High School and are proud of each one of them! On February 20, 2018, USD 109 patrons voted to pass a bond issue to make $16.7M in improvements and additions to both the Elementary and Jr/Sr High Schools. The Banquet will be moved to another location; however, we are hoping to still be able to take short tours of the ol’ alma mater! Proud to be a Buffalo forever!

SCHOLARSHIPS & PROJECTS
Thank you for contributing to the scholarship fund & projects in the past. Your generous contributions in the past years have enabled us to give scholarships to many deserving, graduating seniors. In addition, we continue to support our school by endorsing various projects each year. The Association are excited to support a Picture Project. We are accepting donations to put up the graduating class photos, in frames on the wall, at the high school for years previous to 1983. Please continue to support the Alumni Scholarship fund & Alumni Projects by sending a tax-deductible contribution. Large or small your contribution counts!
