Where are they now?

The Prairie School has a national community of alumni, who are actively shaping the world—nationally or locally, publicly or quietly. In 1970, our first graduating class of 19 students, began their endeavors as young adults. Since then we’ve graduated close to 1,800 students. From authors to musicians, to doctors and lawyers, we’re amazed with the journeys and experiences our students have after graduating. Our alumni constitute a valued and important part of our school community. We celebrate this richness and encourage alumni to remain in touch.

Alumni Council

Prairie’s Alumni Council was created to serve the needs of a growing alumni population. The Council meets quarterly to discuss upcoming events and facilitate communication between Prairie alums and their alma mater. Activities are organized on behalf of the Alumni Council, including individual class reunions and invitations to Prairie-related events. The Alumni Council encourages active participation from all Alumni Association members, and benefits from ideas and suggestions provided by alums.

Lisa Drewek KernThat was a photo from Middle School years, not high school. Somehow I didn't play in middle school. I remember being sad about that. However the good thing is that you don't get to see my bad '80's hair.2 days ago   ·  2
Cory ChristensenThat makes more sense, Lisa. Back row far left is Kyla Twigg and I think she was only at Prairie in 7th and 8th grade. Front and center looks like Nina Lutz. She was probably a senior in 83. Second row center is Joan Hanrahan.2 days ago
