Mary D. Bradford High School Class of 1973 welcomes you to its web site!
It's for you... best of all, it is absolutely free! Find your name on the list of Classmate Profiles and register now to log in and create your own profile page (upload photos and let your classmates know what you've been up to since our days at Mary D.). Classmate address, phone number(s) and email address are required for verification purposes when you create your profile.
This is the only endorsed OFFICIAL website for the Bradford High School Class of 1973. Don't be taken in by organizations purporting to have a connection with our alma mater which have no connection whatsoever to Bradford High School and our local Kenosha community.
You may be wondering if your contact information (i.e., address and phone number) is secure on our website. When you post changes to the mailing address and phone numbers in your profile on the website, the info is only visible to our Site Administrators, Randy and Jan Vaccaro. We have “checked the box” to Block Profile Visibility for everyone listed on the Class of ’73 website. This blocks public and search engines from accessing the information contained in your profile. Classmates who are logged in on the website cannot see your street address or phone numbers, but they may see photos and any personal narrative you share in your profile. If you send a message to a classmate through the website, they will see your email address.
In March 2021, we obtained a secure certificate for our Class of '73 website, so you'll no longer receive a warning from the web browser you're using that our website is not secure.
SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, September 16, 2023!
The Reunion Committee has reserved Stella's Casa Capri for the Class of 1973 50th Reunion. Options for an ice breaker on Friday night are still being discussed, and we are still working to verify classmate mailing and email addresses. We will post more information as it becomes available.
09/09/2022: This morning we added a Classmates Not Registered page to the Class of '73 website. We hope those who are active on our website will take a look at those listed and, if you have contact information or an email address for any of them, please reach out to them with an invitation to join our website.
Please note, you must be logged in to your Classmate Profile in order to view the Classmates Not Registered page, as well as the In Memory page.
08/14/2022: Yesterday morning, we added Dave Wallen to the In Memory page and included his photo from the '73 Spy. He passed away in 2007, which was before the BHS Class of 1973 website was established. Unfortunately, we've not been able to locate a published obituary.
REUNION COMMITTEE REQUESTS YOUR ASSISTANCE
July 6, 2022: During the first 6 months of this year, we have seen the loss of several '73 classmates, all of whom have been added to our In Memory page. We added photos of most of those classmates who've passed, some photos from published obituaries and some from our Spy yearbooks.
The Reunion Committee will be looking ahead to organizing the 50th Reunion for the Class of 1973 to be held in 2023. We ask each classmate to keep us posted on changes to his/her mailing address, phone number(s) and email address. Thanks in advance for your help!
Hope you are well and living life to the fullest!
June 8, 2022: We just learned that John Cibrario, mathematics teacher and baseball coach for Bradford High School for more than 30 years, has passed away. He touched the lives of so many young people in his time at BHS. You can read his obituary here. Rest in peace, Mr. Cibrario.
Support the Bradford High School Alumni Association
We hope you'll consider supporting the Kenosha Bradford High School Alumni Association (KBHSAA) by becoming a member. Please visit the Alumni Association's official website for more information on its mission to provide annual scholarships to deserving seniors and recognition of Distinguished Alumni for their achievements.
The KBHSAA has previously honored five of our classmates as DAA recipients:
KBHSAA recently completed its DAA Plaque Restoration project, which included having our classmate, Don Sebetic, photograph the plaques. Those photos have been posted on the KBHSAA website on the Close-Up: DAA Honorees web page. The DAA plaques are on display in the hallway just east of Bradford's Main Entrance.
We'd very much like to see another deserving member of the Class of '73 nominated to receive DAA consideration next year. The nomination form will be available by October 1, 2022 on the KBHSAA website, and nominations must be postmarked by January 31, 2023.
