Welcome to the Galesburg Senior High School Class of 1959 web site!


It has been suggested that a prayer chain be started for our class. Lowell Peterson, a retired United Methodist pastor, has volunteered to help with this. For information, see the ‘Prayer Chain Request’ tab on the left.

A new item has been added on the left: Budget School Newspaper. Many thanks to Mike Wald for submitting all these issues of our school newspaper!

In the 'Photo Gallery' tab on the left, you may upload photos of the 60 Year Class Reunion. Once you select the 'Photo Gallery, you will see an album in which you may upload your photos.

Photos from the photographer have now been uploaded to the 60 Year Reunion Gallery.

Checks for our scholarship need to be made out to: Galesburg Public Schools Foundation, NOT Class of 59 Memorial Scholarship, as previously indicated. Class of 59 Memorial Scholarship can be indicated in the memo line, if desired.

Scholarship info has been added to the menu on the left.

Classmates can now upload photos to the Photo Gallery.  Try it out, but use common sense!
