Celebrating Alumni

All-School Reunions

Starting in 2009, VAFA took on the responsibility of planning an All-School Reunion celebration during the Villisca Heritage Days every four years. Our most recent all-school reunion was held July 1st-3rd, 2022. Thank you to all who helped, participated and joined in on all of the fun! See you next time!


Hall of Fame

Sponsored by the Villisca Alumni and Friends Association, eight people were inducted into the first class of the Hall of Fame in a ceremony held during the 2009 All-School Reunion. In 2013 seven more people were inducted and four more were inducted in 2017.

VHS family and friends were invited to nominate individuals with a written explanation of the outstanding achievements justifying the candidate’s possible induction. To be eligible a nominee must have graduated from VHS or served VHS prior to 1989. The achievements could be in – but not limited to – the field of sports, music, academics, or achievements following graduation. An emphasis was placed on alumni but former teachers, coaches, and supportive citizens of the Villisca School system were also considered.

The VAFA Hall of Fame has recently been moved to the Community Building. Thanks to board members Andrew Focht and Jim Robinson and VAFA member Ryan Focht for helping with this.
