Thirty years after the closing of Yankton College, alumni are still gathering to remember and reconnect with classmates. The All-Class Reunion is being held this weekend in Yankton, South Dakota and will give alumni the chance and honor those who have taken their athletic and fine arts achievements from the college on to succeed through their careers. Jan Garrity is the Executive Director for Yankton College and says this weekend is all about the alumni.

The Alumni Advisory Board hosts the reunion every two years. This year they expect close to 200 attendees to return to Yankton.

Yankton College graduates and past students will enjoy tours of the campus and other historical Yankton sites throughout the weekend.
