* Galva High Alumni Reunion

Galva, Kansas High School symbolOnce the heart of the community, the old Galva High School building was constructed in 1916 for grade school and high school students. During the oil boom in 1931 the south wing or gymnasium was added. This building served the elementary and high school students until a new elementary school was built in 1956-57. The doors of Galva High School were closed with the class of 1972. The alumni of Galva High School still meet once a year on the first Saturday of June. For more information contact:
