Our Alumni

In Bird City, our sense of community doesn’t end at the edge of town. Our alumni — both residents and Cheylin graduates — carry the spirit of Bird City with them wherever they go. And each summer, we celebrate their stories and accomplishments at our annual Bird City Reunion.

May 28, 2016

Bird City Rural High School celebrated their 91st Alumni Banquet at 6:30 at the Bird City Legion Hall. The BCRHS Memorabilia Booth at the Thresher Show grounds was open in the afternoon for the Bird City Cardinal Alumni to enjoy.

The theme of this year’s banquet was “Oldies But Goodies” and decorated for the occasion. The committee members were: Sherry Carmichael, Jim & Cindy Leach, and Lynn & Candy Glasco. The banquet was opened by emcee Lynn Glasco and the invocation given by Pastor Jim Gleason. A delicious meal was catered by Kerby & Canda.

80 Alumni Cardinals were in attendance. Honored Classes were 1941, 1946, 1951, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1971.

Many Veterans were also honored. It was a fun filled evening with great local entertainment and classmates reunited from Alaska to the East Coast and all in between. BCRHS Cheerleaders of all ages closed the Banquet with the School Song.

Thank you to all who attended and helped make this a very successful BCRHS Banquet.

We won’t let it die – we’ll keep it on the fly — Go Cardinals!!!


We, Lynn & Candy Glasco (class of 1966 and 1967) and Sherry Carmichael (class of 1958) have been on a rescue mission to save BCRHS memorabilia.  The trophies and cases and 44 class pictures have been found over the last year.  They have been repaired and relocated to Bird City’s Tri-State Antique Engine and Thresher Show. A special thanks goes out to Rod Klepper for all his help in getting this accomplished. Rescued class pictures will be on display at the Thresher Show.

We are still looking for class photos from 1919 to 1931 that the committee could have, or make a copy of, to add to the collection.

The BCRHS donations that have come in over the past years will pay for set up, repairs and wall displays for the class pictures.  As more memorabilia comes in, other cases and displays will be needed, as well as monetary donations. If you have something related to BCRHS let us know. (Lynn & Candy Glasco 785-734-2797).

For this ongoing project, please make your donation check out to Bird City Alumni, and memo “Memorabilia”; mail to:
