2014 GHS Alumni News
The Goshen High School Alumni Association will be having its 116th annual alumni banquet onSaturday, May 10, 2014 at Goshen High School. The evening will begin with a Friendship Hour at 4:00 pm in the Goshen High School lobby. A video presentation of the time capsule being opened will be shown in the community room off the high school lobby. Appetizers and beverages will be provided by the alumni committee during the Friendship Hour. The Friendship Hour is free for anyone wishing to attend. Dinner will follow the Friendship Hour and begins at 6:30 pm. The dinner cost is $15.00 per person.
This year, we will honor the classes of 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, and 2014. We need one member of each honored class to introduce their class members. If you would like to be the representative for your class, please contact Candy Meadors at 513-310-2626. In order to make it more comfortable, we will be setting 50 more places for grads to sit together. It may take a little longer to be served since we can’t preset the salads, but it will allow for groups to sit together.
Any group having 10 or more members can request a reserved seating area.
During the banquet, we will be inducting our newest Hall of Fame members, as well as presenting our scholarships to this year’s winners. Last year, eight recipients received scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each. The deserving graduates were Ryan Hicks, Ryan Saylor, Kristen Dorton, Tyler Stewart, Bobby Taylor, Tierra Marinelli, Alena Moore and Alex Edwards. Our scholarships vary from year to year, depending upon the donations we receive from our alumni.
The alumni association has been working on several projects this year. Our facebook page is growing every day, so check it out if you haven’t joined yet. We paid Fugett’s to recreate the 1983 and 1979 class photos from the yearbooks, so we can post them in the high school lobby. Thanks to Joe Spaulding, we copied old newspapers called the Goshen Booster and will have copies for sale on our webpage gift shop. We also sold bricks from the 1908 building to add to our scholarship fund. We want to thank everyone who bought a memento from our past and thus contributed to a Goshen senior’s future.
The alumni also received several special donations this year. Eric Marr sent us photos of Kathyrn and Larry Marr that are treasures for our web page and archives. Don and Deb Andrews have provided generous support for our scholarship fund for a very long time. Tom Hartley donated items from his mother, Aileen Ireton, Class of 1930. The items include the 1908 dedication booklet, autograph books, newspapers, class photos and many more gems that we cherish. In appreciation of their support and generosity, we are presenting them with our special Thank You Award.
The Goshen alumni, school, businesses and other community members are building a monument to the old 1908 building. They have created a Warrior Monument as a visible reminder of our educational roots. The stone donated by Tufts Schildmeyer is finished and hopefully, it will be installed by our alumni banquet. It will be located in front of the high school surrounded by a brick patio. A $100.00 donation will put your name on a brick, with a $250.00 or more donation placed on a plaque on the monument. Any amount will be gratefully accepted and is tax deductible. Go to our website goshenalumni.com and look under the news and notes link for more detailed information. Checks can be sent to the Goshen Local School District, 6694 Goshen Rd, Goshen, Ohio 45122.
