R-P Authors: The New Section in Town (Libraries)

Reeths-Puffer High School will graduate their 57th class on June 2, 2015.  Relatively speaking, our district is young when compared to other districts in Muskegon County.  A new vision is being put into motion with the hope of building on the traditions that continue to make our district great!

The Vision:

A Reeths-Puffer Authors collection will have its own section in each library in all district schools to honor past graduates whose works have been published.


The committee that has launched this vision is comprised of:

Dan Beckeman, High School Principal

Nancy Burton, English Department Chair

Bob Heaton, Retired English Teacher and English Department Chair

Ken Krispin, AP English Literature Teacher

Joan Vincent, LMC Specialist


Our alumni have gone on to do many great things in communities across the nation and globe.  Many of these great things have been published for a greater audience to enjoy.  What better audience than R-P Rocket Readers of all ages and grades?

With the help of social media, we hope to identify every Reeths-Puffer graduate who has had work published.  This is where YOU (the reader) can help!  If you know of an R-P alum that is a published author whose work could include, but not be limited to: books, magazines, newspapers, essays, poetry, lyrics, blogs, movie or TV screenplays, the committee asks that you contact us at:
