​EHS ALUMNI REUNION

Due to the closing of Evarts High School, we endured a transition period and for a couple of years we simply did not have the opportunity or resources to get the school ready for upcoming reunions. We are pleased to announce that the Multipurpose Center - Cloverfork Club for Progress and Education has purchased EHS and renovation/repair efforts to the old section of the school have been and are still underway. In the near future, they hope to receive assistance from the Evarts High School Alumni and Scholarship Association and EHS Alumni. When the school closed it was in the best shape it had seen in many, many years. Without an opportunity to purchase the school or provide the community/area businesses with a chance to utilize it in some capacity, it was left vacant and the effects of vandalism, theft, lack of heat, etc. had taken their toll. We continue to face numerous challenges but would like to announce that EHS, as it has been for the past several years, will once again host the Annual Labor Day Reunion.

 

Scholarships and Donations

 

As of 2020, the Evarts Alumni & Scholarship Association has given approximately $584,784 dollars
in scholarships to Cloverfork students. Even though we have been unable to hold the 2020 and 2021

Reunions, we still committed to providing $5000 in 2020 and will provide $8000 to our scholarship

applicants in 2021 pushing our total to $592,784. When factoring in matching scholarships, we estimate

that over one million dollars has been provided over the years! Each year that passes by, our resources become fewer and we do not have the money to give to the students like we used to. We ask that if you can, please make a donation and/or start an annual scholarship to help these students who are so deserving. We have established a PayPal account that will allow you to make secure donations of any amount and will provide a donation receipt. Look for the 'Donate' button to the right at the bottom left of every page. You can also make donations in person during the Reunion or via mail by sending them to Arlene Brown, PO Box 166, Evarts, KY 40828.

 

Deceased Alumni

 

We attempt to gather as much information as possible regarding alumni that have passed on and get that out to everyone. Surely we miss some and never look forward to completing this part of our website nor sharing the information to our photo galleries on Facebook. If you have someone that you would like to add to the Deceased List, please send that information to Arlene Brown at akbrown@windstream.net. As we complete the deceased listings, you will be able to view and download them below.

Deceased Listings: 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 (will be posted soon)
 

Dates
 

Unfortunately, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic and to comply with related recommendations, we were unable to hold the 2020 Annual Labor Day Reunion and will again be unable to hold the Reunion for 2021. We are already planning the Reunion for 2022 which will be Friday, September 2nd and Saturday, September 3rd, 2022. Additional details and information will also be available on Facebook and below. The Labor Day Reunion is always scheduled around the Labor Day Holiday weekend, which is the first full weekend of September.

Notes:

- All registration fees, etc. go directly toward scholarships for Cloverfork Students.

- Donations can be made on our website at http://www.evartsalumni.com/, in person during the Reunion or via mail by sending them to Arlene Brown, PO Box 166, Evarts, KY 40828
- We exist to serve the Alumni and current students of Cloverfork. Without your help and donations, we cannot provide scholarships or hold reunions. To date and with your help, we have given well over $500,000 out and we are almost to the point that we will not be able to provide multiple scholarships anymore. If you have received a scholarship from us in the past or would like to help, please donate. It will be very much appreciated!
