Welcome to the Lincoln Southeast High Class of 1965 Webpage.

Notes from your committee:


After much discussion, your LSE'65 Reunion Committee determined that the fall of 2021 is NOT a good time to encourage our classmates to TRAVEL to Lincoln FROM all over the country and GATHER in festive groups of all sizes. (Damned Delta!). We will, unfortunately, have to schedule our venues, food, and hotel holds for the fall of 2022.  Stay tuned for the new dates.  

DONATIONS:  We have happily received and safely banked several donations towards our reunion efforts, and will use any donated funds to reduce the reunion costs to attendees whenever we can gather.  

 More than 20 classmates donated to our Reunion efforts.  Because of their generosity, we have been able to donate to Southeast High and take advantage of a special deal to extend this website at least until our 60th Reunion in 2025.   (For some reason I wanted to say "in the year 2525" but we aren't planning that far ahead.) Donations also help plan for upcoming reunions by holding venues.   Please consider sending in a donation (large or small) to help us keep down the Reunion reservation fees and allow us to continue making donations to Lincoln Southeast whenever we have a reunion.  Sherrie Geier, Joyce Davidson, and Gregg Wright serve as co-treasurers for an LSE'65 bank account at Wells Fargo. Donations may be sent to:

LSE'65 Reunion Committee
2510 South 24th Street,
Lincoln, NE 68502.  

Donations may also be given with a credit card by using the link on the right-hand side of the home page.  Note, that when using the credit card/Paypal function, Paypal takes their cut of a little more than 8%.  

WEBSITE:  We now have 201 classmates signed up for the website.  Please encourage any classmates to sign up if they haven't yet.  

50th REUNION GROUP PICTURE (FABULOUS PRIZE):  Remember that the 50th Reunion group picture is posted with a potential key at the "50 Year Picture" link. However the key has NOT been finished.  We need to crowd-source this task.  If anyone wants to show what they know and help create the key (or a partial key) please identify the faces on the numbered picture and send names and their corresponding number to  A fabulous prize (worth less than $25) will still be given to the person who can submit the most correct names before our October 1, 2020.  SEND YOUR KEY SUGGESTIONS TO

In Memory

The "In Memory" page (on the left menu) lists of all of the LSE65 classmates known to the 50 year Reunion Committee to be deceased.  This page is a poignant reminder that time is short and precious.   Please let us know if you have information about other classmates who have died, or about the year of death when it is missing.  It would also be good to know those who have served in the military, and those we know have been killed in action.  Please e-mail any edits or additions to us at .  

Help Find Missing Classmates

"Missing classmates" does not mean we do not have contact information,  It means they are missing from the website and have not yet joined.  Please try to help get everyone registered.  The website will mean much more to everyone if more are participating.        

Help The Site Improve

We would still love to add an assistant website administrator or two to help build the site, add interesting content, and encourage discussion etc.  It is easy and there are some helpers available in Lincoln who have used this website provider for other classes.  Please indicate your interest by contacting us at  IT'S EASY.  YOU'LL LIKE IT!

Reflections from the 50th Reunion in 2015

There are many reflections posted on the site that can be seen at the "What's New" page.  Bob Danley had an especially thoughtful take on our reunion so it is copied here:  

Reflections........... What a weekend!! As it was ending last night I was plopped into a chair thinking about what had just happened over the last 2 days. What an incredible group of people.. Classmates!! From every walk of life, I just marveled at what this group of people has accomplished: how many went into the service, how many went to war, the educators, instructor's of every type, college professor's, department chairs, business owners, large & small, men & women. Doctor's, Dentists, Attorney's, Accountants, Artist's, Airline Pilot's, Fighter Pilot's, Captain's of ships, Captain's of Industry.. McCormick, I think there are even 2 Realtor's? Really!! Oh & so much more... When they gave us those diploma's & sent our class out into the world, we grabbed it and ran.. We truly did not ask "what our Country could do for us" we went out and did what we could do for Country, our Family's & Ourselves.. 93% of our class went on to higher education, are you kidding me?? We as a whole are a grand accomplishment, we should be proud of ourselves. We came, we learned, we traveled the globe, we helped our fellow travelers, we have helped those in need, we have indeed made this a better place, and we have led, we are something... Thank You to all who were able to come enjoy, I hope many more continue to sign up on our website. For those unable to attend I hope you join the conversation, just as I have seen Doug & Shirley just join (we missed You both, for way too many years), and I hope to see hundreds of pictures posted to the site very soon.. Maybe we will not wait so long to do this again. I think it is time to BRING THE BAND BACK... Thanks again to everyone, it was a sensational weekend!!! Bob


2018 Lincoln Luminary Award goes to Classmate Linda Hillegass and husband Jim McKee

On December 7 Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler will present the third annual Lincoln Luminary Award to our classmate Linda Hillegass and her husband Jim McKee. Linda and Jim are longtime owners of Lee Booksellers in Lincoln. As a well-known local historian, Jim writes a weekly column for the Lincoln Journal Star and gives numerous community presentations. Linda gives her time to many nonprofits, including the Lincoln Literacy Council, the Food Bank of Lincoln and Lincoln City Libraries, where she served for five years as assistant director.

In a nomination statement, a friend of this special couple wrote, “Jim and Linda together are a quiet and humble force for Lincoln. They have spent their lives working for the betterment of the Lincoln community with absolutely zero pursuit of personal accolades.”

Congratulations, Linda. We are so proud!
