High School sweethearts reconnect 40 years later at OTD

Posted: Updated:
Oregon Trail Days are full of class reunions but for two high school sweethearts, the reunion was so much more.

Christine Schmeeckle-Miller lives in Omaha now but graduated from Gering High School in 1975.

She says six months ago, she and her high school boyfriend Bob Horst reconnected using Facebook.

Horst graduated in 1974 and was a part of his class reunion's float during the OTD parade this weekend.

Schmeeckle-Miller says both of them are divorced and that Bob invited her to participate in his class reunion's festivities.

"We've been apart for 40 years and it really feels good being back in Gering, kind of like old days," Schmeeckle-Miller smiled.

She says she's thankful for Facebook and being able to use it at her age.
