Stallion Alumni


Attention NM Class of 1972

Believe it or not next year (2022) will be the 50th anniversary of our year of graduation! Harold Flanery, Glen Richardson, Jo Thompson Holland, and Sherman Burns have recently been working on some plans for a reunion.

Our goals are:
                     Keep it simple
                     Keep it affordable
                     Keep it convenient
                     Make it FUN!

In keeping with those goals, our plans are to hold the actual reunion the Saturday afternoon after the Friday night annual NM vs M game, which is usually held in October. We won’t have the actual date until this summer. We are planning to use the NM cafeteria from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, cater in some lunch, and then have a dutch treat after-party at a local (Town East area) restaurant that evening.

We would love to have some help putting this together. The first thing that everyone can help with is to get the word out and talk it up. If you have time to help with the logistics, please reach out to Sherman at: We’ll try to organize a meeting in the next month or so or have a zoom meeting if that is best.
