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. 2019 donors enabled the Alumni Association Scholarship Committee to grant almost $4,600 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!  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 project is completed, and we are excited to show it off over the Banquet weekend. Join us for tours Saturday, May 23, 2020 10am-noon & the Historic Buffalo Apartments Open House 10am-noon! Proud to be a Buffalo Forever!

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 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 1977. Large or small your contribution counts!  The funds that you generously provide are greatly appreciated!
