Manassas High Alumni Association Unity Brunch set for April 6

After a two-year pause due to the pandemic, the Manassas High School Alumni Association is poised to host its much-anticipated 29th Annual Unity Brunch. Scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at the Holiday Inn-University of Memphis, located at 3700 Central Avenue, the event promises to mark a record turnout.

The Unity Brunch, a cornerstone event for the association, not only serves as a gathering of past graduates but also as a fundraiser with a noble cause. The proceeds from the event are earmarked to benefit the deserving graduating seniors of Manassas High School through scholarships, aiding them in their future academic pursuits.

This year, the brunch will be graced by the presence of Bishop Frederick A. Flagg, a distinguished alumnus from the Class of 1973 and the current pastor at Cathedral of Praise Worship Center. His participation underscores the deep connections between the alumni and the community, highlighting the event’s significance beyond just a social gathering.

Highlighting the awards segment of the brunch will be the presentation of the 2024 Gold and Blue Award to Willie F. Brooks, Jr., the current County Register of Deeds and a proud member of the Class of 1974. Brooks’s contributions as the custodian of Shelby County’s records, coupled with his active involvement both as an alumnus and in the community, exemplify the spirit of the Gold and Blue Award. This accolade is reserved for alumni who not only show exceptional engagement with the school but also make significant strides in their professional and community endeavors.

Moreover, the event will honor the graduating Class of 1974 on their 50th reunion, adding a layer of nostalgia and celebration to the proceedings. This gesture acknowledges the enduring bond between the alumni and Manassas High School, celebrating decades of achievements and contributions.
