Relma Burmeister reminisces on high school memories along with other 1964 alumni. Back in 1964, a gallon of gas was only 26 cents and a loaf of bread was 10 cents. “Coming to the Alumni Assembly was fun and thinking we’ll never make it. Time passes so fast,” said Burmeister. “If you didn’t have school spirit, after watching returning graduates say their chants, it gives you spirit. It makes you proud.”

    I was wondering where the article was that featured the November 5th, 2016 Alumni Scholarship Fundraiser event at StaionHouse726. I know a representative from the Vanguard was there but I was never able to get an answer as to what type of article might be written. The Alumni Association raised over $5,000 for scholarships and we are starting to plan for the November 4th, 2017 event already. We have hopes that the Vanguard will help us promote and recognize this 24th Annual event.

    Thank you for your interest, Mr. Anderson. That type of story would most likely be categorized in the “news” section of our website. I’ll get in touch with the staff member who covered your event and get back to you on that.
