Speaker for the combined Boonville High Schools Alumni Reunion was Tim Harlan, a 1967 graduate.

Boonville Alumni Association President Nancy Whalen introduced Harlan during the banquet who gave an almost 20 minute speech at the Isle of Capri Ballroom on Saturday evening.

Harlan’s background includes a Bachelor of Arts degree at Westminster College and a Law Degree from the University of Missouri School of Law. He has practiced law in Columbia since 1974 and is a member of the firm of Harlan, Harlan and Still, where he primarily represents disabled adults. As a former member of the Missouri House of Representatives (1995 to 2003), he focused on healthcare legislation.

Harlan talked about many subjects during his speech to fellow graduates from Boonville High School, Laura Speed Elliott, Saints Peter and Paul Catholic and Sumner School.

Harlan talked about stories from school, Boonville and his early life. He touched on what he had learned and about the importance of Boonville. Furthermore, he told some personal stories and what he learned from them.

Once Harlan was finished several former classmen were recognized, including the class of 1947 and Wade Davis who was part of the class of 1939.
