Welcome to the

Waukegan Twp. High School

Class of 1974


Greetings WTHS ‘74 Classmates!

It's been at least 20 years since the Class of 1974 last got together! Too much time has passed since our last gathering. A core group of classmates would like to change all that and has begun planning for our 45th Reunion in 2019. We look forward to reconnecting with as many classmates as possible and hope you will join in the fun.

Help us stay in contact with all of our classmates by creating a profile and keeping your contact informaton up to date - especially your email. Make sure to take a look at the missing classmates list and let us know if you have any contact information for the "missing".
