2011 Goshen High School

Alumni Association Newsletter



Dear Alumni,

         The Goshen Alumni Association is excited to announce that it will be awarding its 100th scholarship during the annual dinner this year. What a milestone for the association, which has been providing scholarships since 1990! Theresa (Klump) Scherzinger, our first recipient, stated that "the scholarship paid for my first quarter’s tuition and books and gave my confidence the boost it needed to be successful in college. I am proud to be the first recipient of the Goshen Alumni Scholarship."

         The Goshen High School Alumni Association will be having its 113th annual alumni event on Saturday, May 14th, 2011 at The GOSHEN HIGH SCHOOL. The evening begins with a Friendship Hour at 4:00PM in the GHS High School lobby. Appetizers and beverages will be provided by alumni officers during the Friendship Hour, which is free. Dinner will follow the Friendship Hour and begins at 6:30 pm. The dinner cost is $12.50 per person for this year and for 2012.

         This year, we will honor the classes of 1961, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, and 2011. We need one member of each honored class to introduce their class members. If you are a member of one of the honored classes this year, please volunteer to introduce your class members. If you would like to be the representative for your class, please contact Candy Meadors @513-310-2626.

        The GHS Alumni Association is pleased to announce that former Latin, French, and English teacher, Bill Disque, Charles McHenry, Class of 1942 and Troy Brashear Class of 1987 will be inducted into the Goshen Hall of Fame this year. We hope that you will join us as we honor these outstanding inductees.


  2010 Activities

         The main focus of the GHS Alumni Association is to provide scholarships to deserving students to further their education. We also honor past graduates and Goshen teachers and coaches who have brought pride and honor to our schools and community by electing them to our Goshen Hall of Fame. Finally, our annual banquet serves as a focus to enable classmates to get together and a platform to honor our classes, scholarship recipients and Hall of Fame winners.

          In order to accomplish these goals, we participate in several fundraisers. Our biggest fundraiser is the Golf Outing held every July with the Goshen Athletic Boosters. We also had three baskets for auction at the Athletic Boosters’ Fall Festival. This year we hope to participate in the Holly Fair.

          In March, we go to the school at lunch time and promote our scholarships and inform the current students about our organization. At homecoming, we pass out pens and take photos for the webpage. We also support and promote the GHS Alumni Basketball game which is a fundraiser for the sophomore class.

          We maintain a graduate database to preserve the history of our school and its graduates. We assist classes in organizing their reunions. We send a newsletter out each spring to all our graduates starting at their 10th year reunions. Our website (goshenalumni.com) helps keep graduates and community members informed of school history and alumni activities. We hope to have a Face Book page in the near future!


           Last year, nine recipients received scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each. The deserving graduates were Nathaniel Godby, Elizabeth Rogers, Tanner Schulte, Kimberly Harris, Tori Locke, Alisha Chess, Courtney Mulvaney, Adam Kannenberg and Josh Webb.

           These scholarships were possible because of generous donations by individuals and groups. During last year’s annual dinner, attendees generously combined individual donations that were enough to provide an additional $1,000 scholarship. Adeline Rogers Cornwell, a long time member of the GHS Alumni Association passed away this year. We have created a scholarship in her memory. The association was overwhelmed with your generosity and we sincerely thank all of you who made the additional scholarships possible.
