Welcome to the Bumpham Reunion Website. Bumpham Elementary and High Schools were located on the out skirts of Bradley, Arkansas in a community called Gin City. After schools were intergrated in 1970, Bumpham became Bradley Elementary until a new elementary school was built in Bradley, then the old Bumpham school was abandoned and became a hay barn. All the black students were transferred to Bradley Schools. Since alumni from Bumpham had no association to the Bradley School Reunions, A group of alumni from Bumpham started having a school reunion for the Bumpham alumni. They opened the reunion to any and everyone that attended the Bumpham Schools. If you attended Bumpham at any time, you are welcome to attend or if you have relatives that attended and you would like to attend in their honor, you are welcome.

2011 Reunion Recap
The Picnic was held at Bradley High Schoool in the New All Purpose Building. We had approximately 100 people in attendance.
The Banquet was held at the Clarion Hotel Grand Ball Room in Shreveport. We had around 100 people in attendance. We were all moved by outstanding performances by Barbara Taylor Odom and a speech from Janet Sanchez Douglas that took us back in history and touched the very roots of our heritage in Bradley, Arkansas.
The Church Service was at Bumpham Church and we had an outstanding sermon by Rev. R. J. Grissom.
