The Mineral Pride Society, Inc. banquet was held on June 7, 2014 at the Mineral Community Center. The banquet honored Mineral High School alumni and their guests as well as three of the Annawan High School graduates from 2014 who grew up in Mineral.

Twenty-six graduates of Mineral High School attended the banquet. Virginia Rogers Hadley (Class of 1938) and Laura Rakestraw Thomas (Class of 1940) were the most senior members of the MHS alumni. The Class of 1954 was recognized for having graduated 60 years ago, and six members of the class of 16 were present. A total of 59 people were present.

The Annawan High School graduates of 2014 were introduced and a list of their high school accomplishments were read. After reading what these kids have done there is no doubt that Mineral Pride lives on today.
