1991 Southmont High School alum Steve Trent and his band Small Town will headline the celebration in the new high school commons. Children and those young at heart are invited to jump, race, and play on inflatables located in the fieldhouse. Various Southmont High School athletics teams will be selling food items throughout the event, including pork burgers and other concession favorites. 

“It will be exciting for our alumni to visit our campus, and to see all of the recent building updates while reminiscing on the past,” Southmont High School Principal Jesse Burgess said. “The whole community is invited to join us for the concert, entertainment, food, free 50th Anniversary giveaways, and what is sure to be an exciting varsity doubleheader between the Mounties and our county rivals at Crawfordsville.”

Both the high school and junior high buildings will be open for alumni to tour, with Royal Ambassadors stationed throughout to answer questions. Classrooms will be available for any graduating class that wishes to have a class reunion. To reserve a classroom please contact Samantha Cotten, Communications Director, at or (765) 866-0203 by Jan. 6.
