We have Shelter House #11 reserved at Lake Jacomo from 10 am to 8:00 pm
Lunch will be served starting at 1:00 pm
We are currently planning on serving smoked brisket, hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and all the fixings, but youíll need to bring your own drinks and any other side dishes/desserts youíd like to share. Because everything has been donated, there will be NO COST associated with this fun, well-overdue event!!! Because we donít want to take advantage of our Donors generosity, we have to limit our lunch guests to classmates only plus one (+1). Additional guests are welcome to come for the fun and games (and/or they can bring their own sack lunch.)
Jan Evans has several lawn games but would like to find people who have Corn-Hole/Baggo boards who are willing to bring them. Also, while there are picnic tables, we would suggest you bring lawn chairs to ensure adequate seating.
Please RSVP by September 7th so we can have enough food for all. This info will be cross-posted on the FaceBook group Blue Springs High School Class Reunions (request to be added if youíre not already in the group) ClassReport.org and ClassMates.com. Please RSVP through only one of these sites to make it easier for us to maintain an accurate count. If the site you use doesnít allow you to add your plus 1 (+1), please email Jan Ried Evans at [email protected] with the info.
Please provide an update of your information which may have changed over the years. A current photo of the class member's photo to be beside your yearbook photo would be welcomed. Any questions please contact Myrna Koch Myers at [email protected] Please send photos to that email as well in JPG Format. We will get them posted as soon as we can.

The small reunion booklets available at previous reunions will also be available. The fee will only be the cost to prepare one. Those will only be produced if you provide and email to Myrna.

Although it was fun to go to school from kindergarten through 12th grade in Blue Springs, shortly after that MODOT condemned my family farm--forcing my family to move from Blue Springs to Odessa Missouri. This is where I live today. The Blue Springs farmstead is now part of Lake Remembrance right off I-70 and Adams Dairy Parkway.
While in high school, I remember one of the Blue Springs coaches telling us that only 4% of Blue Springs graduates went on to college. I wanted desperately to go to college. Unfortunately, as a farm kid, money was always an issue. If I wanted to go to college, I had to earn my way there.
To earn tuition money, I joined the Army and was sent to Germany for 6 years where I learned about duty, honor, and country. I got a chance to start my education and saved like crazy for the day when I could go back to college full time. After being honorably discharged, I returned to Missouri to start my education with family in tow. One child just turned one year old and I was pregnant with another. After waiting so long to go to college I was determined to go--and I did.
I went to the University of Central Missouri (BS), Colorado State University (MBA) and Mizzou (PhD). It took 15 long years to complete my education. My children thought every mom went to PhD school. My dissertation was dedicated to my youngest daughter who helped me with my data collection. I guess those lessons live on today in my children. (Thank you coach).
My son Adam is an attorney in New York and Dallas (married to the lovely Mindy) and my daughter works for a very large national bank in San Francisco with 700 people reporting to her. I have a grandson Logan who is the apple of my eye.
For 32 years I taught at the college level and worked in industry. I taught engineering, finance, and statistics. I ended my academic career at East Carolina University in North Carolina and my professional career at Burns & McDonnell Engineers in Kansas City, MO where I was responsible for maintaining professional certifications for over 7000 engineers working across the world.
I am recently widowed. My husband was a physicist and chemist and was absolutely the love of my life. I miss him every day. He died of cancer at the start of Covid on March 25, 2020. I absolutely hate cancer.
Death has been hard on me for the past few years. In 2015 my dad died, in 2018 my mom died, in 2020 my husband died and in 2021 my dog died.
Before my husband died, he asked me to open a small storefront in Odessa called Borgmanís Farmstead Store. My daughter is planning on coming home to help me run it. Business is good and I have just purchased a historical building that I plan to renovate.
So, in the end, Iím back to my original roots as a 3rd generation farmer for Borgmanís Dairy. If you are ever in Odessa, please stop in to say hello.
