Roseville High School's centennial commemorated with picnic, open campus dayBy: By Anne Stokes, special to the Press Tribune
An event 100 years in the making and with two years of planning came together with Roseville High School's Centennial Celebration on Sunday. Alumni and current students, teachers and parents returned to campus for an open house event with live music, historical slideshows and a tour of Roseville's oldest school. Some also attended a picnic at Woodbridge Park in the afternoon.
"Over the course of the last year, countless hours of volunteer time and effort have gone into making the 100-year anniversary memorable, not only to those of us who are here, but also for the future generations of Roseville High School students," said Steve Priley, president of the alumni association.
Mayor Pauline Roccucci, class of 1966, attended Sunday's events, along with the homecoming parade on Sept. 14, to show her Tiger pride.
"I'd have to say that's the neatest thing walking around here," Roccucci said. "It's just kind of a giant reunion and it's fun."
