CLASS  OF  1965


Hello, Classmates!

IT”S COMING!!!! We had a blast at our 57th reunion, and we’re not done yet! Washburn High School’s 100 year anniversary will be here before you know it! The planning committee chairman, Mark Wedl, is looking for volunteers to serve in a wide variety of roles on the committee. Here’s his letter.

We are going to start planning in the coming months and part of that planning will include forming this committee. We are looking for a diverse group to help plan for 2025, so please start thinking about how you can contribute. We will need committee members, outreach people to find Millers around the globe, business owners, performers, artists, media, designers, you name it! We all have talents and we need those talents to help make this celebration worthy of 100 years of Miller greatness.

Please let me know how you would like to help by giving me your contact information (Name, Graduation Year, How you would like to help, Ideas for gatherings/parties/events, etc.) We already have a number of ideas that will need committees set up and we will get that information/detail out asap.

For now, I just need to know that you are willing to help and your contact information. As we move ahead, we will make more specific requests, but do not hesitate to shoot me your thoughts and ideas!

Please Message or Email me ( with your info and THANK YOU in advance for being great Miller community members!

We now have a Facebook group so classmates can post information or pictures. Membership is restricted to Class of 1965 classmates. We have 114 members so far.
