It is always great to hear how many graduates manage to stay together over the years. We love when you send us your stories. This group from 1959 might win the prize. A group of 10 have been getting together once a month since they have graduated. Some of these ladies even went to grade school together. Once every year, they go away for a few days for spend even more time together. This year, they chose to go to Shawnee State Park to celebrate all of their 75th Birthdays with a few days of fun and relaxation. Missing from the picture is Mary Lou Fussner Stouffer. Also some of the group is now deceased, but they dserve to be mentioned- Barb Bohart Reed, Peggy Menner Beerman, Pat Randolph Niehaus.
Many in this group can even be found up at McNick volunteering to work open house. The ladies from '59 help out the guys from '69 as we host a cookout to welcome new Rockets into the family.
Remember, we would love to hear about you and your class. I am sure there are many of you that have great adventures that you would like to share. I know I would love to hear and share your stories.

|Do You like looking at old pictures from "back in the day?"|
Thank you to the several alumni who that have already offered to help us with this project. At the present we have about eight volunteers, but we can always use more! If you enjoy looking at old pictures and are still interested in helping, then the alumni office could still use your help. We are looking to improve our archives over the next few months. We need people who can help us to identify the people in our pictures so that we can properly label them, record them, and then preserve them.
