In a trophy case in the lobby of the high school gym sits a deflated, dusty old leather football. There is some writing on that old ball and on closer examination the writing seems to be...........

A New Invitation
The Alumni Board has made changes to the way we prepare and mail our invitations. We are using NetPost through the U.S. Postal Service. By using NetPost the Alumni Association was able to save $160.00 in mailing costs. NetPost also cross-references our Alumni addresses against the U.S. Postal Service’s national database. This will save additional costs of approximately 100 “bad” addresses or $39.00. We no longer have the pretty blue paper but we had to cut the frills to cut costs! PLEASE advise all Alumni that we must have good, current addresses for our new system of mailing. Thanks for your patience with our new system. Rena Crews Hollis, Secretary, Class of 1972
Alumni Address Updating If you know of anyone who did not receive a reservation form, please contact Rena Crews Hollis by E-mail or the Alumni Association, P.O. Box 148, Stevenson, WA 98648-0148. firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to honor those people who have attended the banquet for several consecutive years. PLEASE LIST THE NUMBER OF YEARS YOU HAVE ATTENDED THE BANQUET ON YOUR RESERVATION FORM.
Scholarship Fund is supported by donations by Alumni, other memorials and 25% of the banquet ticket price. You are encouraged to donate, as indicated on the form provided. There are four $1,000 scholarships available annually.
An Important Update from Secretary Rena!
I want to let you know that the alumni banquet was June 25, 2016. Mark your calendars now for next year’s reunion to be held on June 24, 2017. We also encourage teachers, community members, and friends to attend - please share this information. We changed the formula so it would always be the Saturday before the Sunday Saddle Club Breakfast. So, it will be the Saturday before the 4th Sunday in June . . . forevermore . . . :-) Rena
Message from the President
Last October, we lost someone I consider a hero, Darrell James Chattan, who graduated from this high school in 1949. Darrell originally would have graduated in 1946, however he left high school to serve his country, in the Navy, during World War II. To have entered the war at his young age, then return and realize that he needed to complete his high school education, even if it meant going to school with much younger students, must have taken a great deal of courage.
I knew and worked with Darrell, back in the 70’s. When I started going to Alumni Association banquets, I could always count on seeing him and we would talk a bit about those we had worked with, just catching up on the news. Last year I didn’t see him and then read his obituary in the paper a couple of months later.
Darrell never really discussed his time in the war, or the return to SHS following the war, but I felt that he had a very deep relationship with SHS, the scholarship program and, most of all, his former classmates he saw each year at the annual Alumni Association gathering. He was luckier than most of us because he had seven years of classmates, rather than four.
So please consider joining us at the annual dinner meeting, to not only help support our scholarship program, but to also reconnect with your classmates – the fellow students who, in some small way, helped mold your life.
We have a great time! Hope you can make it! Ken Foster, Class of 1959 - President
We are issuing a plea for anyone having class address lists to e-mail or send them to Rena or Webmaster – our address records are really sketchy, especially for the past 10-15 years. We note the year the address is updated on our master list so it helps to make sure we have the most current information.
NEW !!! ENJOY
