Southwest High School
Class Of 1969

 Welcome to the Southwest High School of Kansas City, Missouri Class Of 1969 web site! 



Thanks to the generosity of one of our esteemed Classmates, we have funds available to foot the bill for up to 20 Classmates to attend the Reunion.  If you haven't made up your mind yet due to cost of attending, please contact me at and we'll get you registered FOR FREE!!!

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR our 45th Reunion!! The date is Saturday, September 13th, 2014 for a casual dinner/dance and Friday, September 12th will be the venerable "pub crawl" in Brookside for those who are interested.  Saturday night's event will be at the Milburn Country Club in Overland Park featuring the KC band, Platinum Express, and sponsored by Classmate Paul Hulsey.  You won't want to miss this great entertainment and the opportunity to dance with the girl/guy of your teenaged dreams!  Paul himself plays drums and does vocals!

Platinum Express plays locally quite a bit.  Please check their website for future dates and locations. 

**If you have friends in the Class of 1968 or 1970, please let them know they are welcome to join us.  They would have to register as Guest Members on this site in order to have access to the Registration Page.**   

To get in the mood for our September reunion, play "See you in September" The Happenings, 1965.

Have fun with this performance of the iconic song by the Beatles in 1964:  "Kansas City!!!"  And be sure to come on back to Kansas City for our next reunion!

Our 40th Reunion was held in August, 2009.

It was a huge success!  More than 250 people gathered to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the day we graduated from SWHS!  Old friends reconnected and a lot of new friends were made.
