Can you believe Kennedy no longer has the Rowdies? Or anything close to school spirit like ours?! Let's help them recreate the Big Mean Green Machine in a new Booster Club.

John F Kennedy High School
Class Of 1981


Welcome to the Kennedy

Class of 1981

Silver Spring, Maryland

Reunion site

If you are new here -- WELCOME. We are happy you found us.

Please join the site and reconnect.


Thank you to all who came to our 41st Destination Reunion weekend in Annapolis in 2022. We had a great time the entire weekend and believe you did too from all the heartwarming feedback.

Different classmates came out to the Icebreaker, Main Event, and After Party, making attendance at each event very special and very unique. We had well over 100 in attendance.

We greatly appreciate all the VERY generous donations to both reunion planning and restoring the Kennedy Booster Club.


Moving forward, we've already begun brainstorming ideas and plan to reunite every 5 years (next up: 2026 to get back in the pattern). We would very much appreciate your input. Get in touch here or on our Facebook page if you have any ideas and/or would like to chair or volunteer.

ANYBODY can plan our reunion! We have no set committees, leaders, or the like -- just this website and a Facebook page to help get you started.



Our class has a very special connection and, sadly, we are losing classmates. Please see below for a link to contribute to the new JFK Celebration of Life fund organized by our collective community.

JFK High School Alumni Community Celebration of Life Fund

With the heartbreaking passing of every classmate, the JFK high school alumni community has been moved to establish an ongoing GoFundMe collection in order to extend our collective acknowledgements to the families of our friends.

When we learn of the death, illness, etc. of one of our “family members”, the fund will already exist and we can send a card, flowers, or a contribution to a charity specifically requested by the family. We encourage you to donate today and throughout the year. Whatever you are moved to contribute is appreciated.

This idea is in its infancy and will evolve as we move ahead. Donations are welcome on an ongoing basis to continue to replenish the fund.



This fund came together through Carlton Phillips and "The Fellas JFK Annual Reunion" he hosts and the community he has gathered on his Facebook page. He graciously invites all Kennedy alum.

Next gathering is Friday evening, September 20, 2024.

Please join The Fellas Facebook page:

The fund is overseen and managed by Terri Holley (‘82), Lisa Hedgepeth (‘80) and Carlton Phillips. Felicia Barlow Clar is a liaision for the Class of '81.
