PESA School Wide Reunions

The Petrolia Ex-Students' Association (PESA) hosts a school wide reunion every three years, on the 2nd Saturday of June. The reunion scheduled in 2021, but was postponed because of safety concerns due to the CoVid 19 outbreak. In 2022 the officers again postponed the reunion over CoVid 19 safety concerns.

PESA Officers:

The PESA Officers are elected by the whole PESA membership during the regular business meeting at each Reunion and serve three year terms. The officers meet several times prior to each reunion to plan and organize the event.  The association president appoints the committee chairpersons who enlist committee members to serve on their committees and accomplish their particular tasks to put on the reunion. (The Association President may appoint a replacement officer in the case of an officer's inability or death.) A theme is selected by the officers for each reunion, which gives it a unique focus and flavor.

Petrolia Ex-Student Assoc., P.O. Box 127, Petrolia, TX 76377

The Current PESA Officers Elected in 2018:

  • President: John Swenson, Jr. - 1963

  • 1st VP: Marchuetta Lundy Matthews - 1979 (in charge of printing & working up the program once a theme is decided)

  • 2nd VP: Roger Thonton - 1966 - (In charge of hospitality--continental breakfast & greeters)

  • Co-Secretary-Treasurers

At the 2018 reunion, in an effort to limit expenses, the members voted and decided that the co-secretaries will only mail notices to those ex-students who had responded to mailings & paid dues for the last two reunions. Public Notices will continue to be placed in the Clay County Leader & Wichita Falls Times Record News, as well as, on the Petrolia School Web site!
