The Springer Connection is a gathering place for alumni and faculty of Highland Springs High School, located in the small town of Highland Springs, Virginia.

The Springer Connection is a free resource to help us all stay in touch and help Springers of all Class Years come together for Reunions. Join Up and return often, as we add new areas and features.

The years go by and people and places change, but the lives we shared at Highland Springs High School make us friends.

Help find Missing Springers

QUESTION: Why are Lois Agee and Robert Ragland from the Class of 1964 in the Detention Hall?

ANSWER: Lois and Robert are there with other Springers that cannot be found as their 50-Year Reunion approaches.

Please help us find these Missing Springers. Step into the Detention Hall (Just Visiting Hall Pass) and see if you know the whereabouts of any of the Missing. No Smoking, please. >>

HERE ARE THE STORIES of the places we grew up. Did you ever wonder where Highland Springs got its name, and who named the streets after plants? When was the first school built?

It's not Mr. Mehfoud's class, but you can jump behind the wheel of our Wayback Machine. Pay attention, there might be a pop quiz >>>

Majorie Booth Bonnet

MARJORIE BOOTH BONNET was Principal at Highland Springs School from 1924 to 1944.

She oversaw the largest High School in the County at a time when men were expected to hold the position. Her students felt such regard for her that they called her "Mommie" Bonnet.
