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. 2021 donors enabled the Alumni Association Scholarship Committee to grant almost $4,500 in scholarships. Thank you for your support of these projects and of the district. We have some very talented, intelligent and well-rounded students at Republic County High School and are proud of each one of them! Proud to be a Buffalo Forever!

& the 2022 Scholarship recipients!


Thank you for contributing to the scholarship fund & projects in the past. Your generous (tax-deductible) 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 is excited to announce our new campaign, “Fill the Circle.” No worries! We’re not actually doing ANYTHING to the BHS “circle.” How great would it be for EACH alumni to contribute their class year? Graduated in 1972? Give $19.72 or maybe $1972 Whatever it may be, we need your help to FILL THE CIRCLE with donations! Large or small, your contribution counts!  The funds that you generously provide are greatly appreciated!

Can’t hide your Buffalo pride? We are looking for new board members to offer their time and service to our worthy cause! Please let us know if you’d like to be a part of these efforts!
