Reunions and Legacy

While not all students had a positive experience at Intermountain, many enjoyed their time there and felt it was an important part of their lives. A group of Intermountain alumni continues to keep in touch and hold reunions. They return to Brigham City periodically to visit the site of the school and repaint the “I” on the mountainside to keep the memory of the school alive.
