Incline High class of ‘84 reconvenes to recall the good ole days
July 14, 2014
Twenty members of the Incline High School class of 1984 gathered at the Hacienda de la Sierra this past weekend for a 30-year reunion.
Below is a short story about the reunion from one the attendees, Val Jackson, who's served as the school's administrative assistant the past several years:
"We had such an amazingly fun time. The reunion afforded us the opportunity to press 'rewind' and 'pause,' to be in the past together for a while, to hang out and play.
"For most of us, it's more than just celebrating four years that we spent together in high school, because in a small town like ours, we spent the better part of all of our K-12 school years together.

We became a part of each other's lives. It's almost like we were family … A crazy kind of 'cousins' by the time we walked across the stage for our diplomas. (Kissing cousins for some of us).
"The past, including both the good and the bad, helps us become who we are. And when you spend as much time together as we all did growing up, that's a significant part of who we all are.
So, we all go back to our regular lives now, after a fun-filled weekend of laughs and tears, but we are taking a little more of our past with us; now that it's dusted off and brought closer to the surface.
"A reminder to us all that we need to cherish our loved ones from the past as well as the ones in the present.
