The Paonia High School Class of 1975 met in June 2015 for its 40th class reunion. Twenty-three members of the class met for a picnic and then activities on Cherry Day. The group decided it would take up a collection to support the PHS Flight of the Eagle project. Cheryl Ridgway and Nancy Carlson presented the donation of $250 to Chelsea Meilner. This amount allowed them to purchase a brick with "Class of 1975" to be placed outside of the high school.
