The Simmesport High School Mega-Reunion was a complete success. To mark the 30th anniversary of the closing of the school, all former students and teachers were invited to the Riverside Elementary gym for a special gathering. With graduates going back to 1946 and all the way up to 1988, nearly 700 people attended the 3-hour event. The event was spearheaded by former teacher and last principal Kirk Guidry and former student Patra Coco. It was a truly magical time for everyone who attended.
