Welcome to the 2007 Douglass-Kingsport High School Reunion in Kingsport, Tennessee!
It's the reunion of the largest Black High School in the Upper East Tennessee region and it's always a cultural event in the Kingsport area, when Douglass Alumni come home and reconnect with their friends and loved ones.
The bi-annual get-together is more like a family reunion because we were all brought up like family, with Douglass-Kingsport as the binding tie that continues to hold us together. The Reunion, held at Meadowview, the Douglass Ball Field, the Riverview Neighborhood and the Memorial Service at Ebenezer Baptist Church this year, is one of Riverview and South Central Kingsport's premiere events, bringing alumni and their descendants back home to reunite with friends and loved ones.
The event started with registration at the Meadowview Convention Center, where folks who registered, picked up their gift bags and the arm bands that would admit them into the Meet and Greet Session and the Banquet.
From registration, it was on to the Hospitality Suite for music and karaoke, and Brothers and Sisters, it was a rousing time there! Our folks know how to throw a party, and the jammin' went on until the wee hours of the morning. By checking the photos in the Photo Gallery, you can see it was a rather small suite, but the smallness made the event more intimate and personal. Light refreshments quickly turned into meals, and the great time and the good music and fellowship was a great way to renew friendships and reunite classmates. It was a wonderful prelude to the Douglass Alumni events to come!
