Welcome to the reunion website for Colonel Richardson High School class of 1990!
Can you believe its been 20 years already? To get a persepective of how long its been, lets take a look at some events that were happening in 1990...

- Jim Henson died...and Kermit will never be the same!
- The Hubble Space Telescope was launched
- Tim Berners-Lee invents the 'world wide web' (couldn't imagine life without it now!)
- Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy after discovering they were not really singing

- A new home cost $123,000
- The average income was $28,970

So it seems much has changed since 1990 which is part of the reason why I'm so excited to see all of you again for our 20th Class Reunion this year! A group of us are working on hammering out all of the reunion weekend details and will post it to this website as soon as we have everything settled! We're also looking at hosting a fundraising bowling event in April...we'll post any new details soon! For now, go ahead and sign in, post some old and new pics and spread the word to all our alumni friends!!
Excited to reconnect with all of you!
Take care, 'old friends'...Lisa Elliott (Weigard
