Battle Ground — The halls of Battle Ground High School were filled with memories on July 26, when more than 20 graduates from the class of 1957 visited the school as part of their 60th reunion. For the reunion, the class of ’57 met at the high school for a luncheon where they could catch up. Then, they enjoyed a tour of the current high school, led by Kevin Jolma, director of facilities, who is a Battle Ground graduate.
