Welcome to the Nelson High School Class of 1954!


On September 10, 11 and 12, 2019 we celebrated our 65th Sapphire Jubilee reunion at Nelson's Prestige Lakeside Resort.

Among our featured events was an Intergenerational Breakfast, with 23 L.V. Rogers grade 12 students as our guests. We also featured a guided tour of Nelson's Touchstones Museum, and a banquet with musical presentations by our own talented classmates.
