September, 2020 Vol. 1/No. 3 Newsletter
In alignment with the District's Strategic Plan we are developing an Alumni Association to build community and engage alumni. Graduates of Badger High School, Genoa City High School and Lake Geneva High School, you are among a community of alumni that are thousands strong. We are building a database of Alumni to keep you connected to us and keep us connected to you. We want to celebrate your life milestones and connect you to the happenings at Badger.

We also want to use our Alumni Association Website to help reunion organizers connect to their classmates. Many changes will be taking place on this site, so check back often.
Spread the Word to our Alumni

Help us spread the word by sharing the newsletter with your classmates and family members who also attended Badger, Genoa City or Lake Geneva High School, post on your class Facebook page or give your classmates a call.

Alumni News
Faculty Member Bruce Johnson

Retired Badger High School English teacher Bruce Johnson reached two milestones in early May 2020. He celebrated his 93rd birthday and launched his first book, And Gladly Would He Teach and Learn, on

From 1988 to 2016, Johnson wrote 1,487 essays about his teaching career and his diverse interests. In the fall of 2017, his friend and former Badger English teacher Robert Pavlik, a retired Marquette University professor, read and organized the essays, selected and edited those for publication, and completed the project in 2020 with the help of Johnson’s daughter, teacher Diane Foster of San Antonio, Texas, BHS Class of ’70.

The book is divided into two parts: And Gladly Would He Teach focuses on Johnson’s experiences becoming and growing as an English teacher from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s. And Gladly Would He Learn reflects on the vast knowledge he gained from his many avocations.

He joined the faculty at Badger High School in the fall of 1958, teaching English for 28 years and journalism for 17 of those years. His approximately 3,000 students remember his passion for language, literature, and writing. 

Students who never had Johnson as their teacher might remember him as the man with the Nikon camera around his neck capturing candid views on slide film of classmates in a variety of school activities.

His book is dedicated to his late wife, Beverly, who was also a Badger High School teacher. He continues to reside in Lake Geneva.
