Alumni Biennial Reunion June 10, 2017

33rd Warsaw High School Biennial Reunion

Every two years, the Warsaw High School Alumni Association hosts a biennial reunion, inviting all WHS graduates to an all school reunion. The 33rd WHS Biennial Reunion was held at the Warsaw High School gymnasium on June 10, 2017.  Alumni celebrating 50 and 25 years were the special honorees: Classes of 1966, 1967, 1991, and 1992. This reunion was the largest gathering ever with over 200 registrants. The event kicked off at 4:00 pm with conversation and cookies. Classes of 1953 and 1964 arrived even earlier to begin celebrating.

At 5:30, a short business meeting was called to order by Donna Stull (1975), President, to elect new officers and directors: Ethan Newman (2009), Vice President; Sherri Fairweather Hawley (1995), Secretary; Marilyn Reser McCain (1962), Director; and Holly Culton (2007), Director. President Stull thanked the Alumni Committee for its work and tireless help.  Doug and Sue McDaniels Stevens were recognized for their help in locating addresses for the alumni mailing. The oldest graduates, Murl and Earlene Hazel Henderson (1942), and youngest graduate, Bailey Sharp (2017), were introduced.  Sharp was also one of the Alumni Scholarship winners, and she thanked everyone for receiving the scholarship. She will attend Missouri S&T in the fall to major in Environmental Engineering and will also participate in ROTC.  Past teachers and administrators attending were introduced.  Dr. Shawn Poyser, Warsaw School Superintendent, spoke briefly.  Then the classes were introduced and asked to stand by decade.  President Stull also explained that the School District had made a permanent display of class photograph composites that scrolls in the front hallway of the high school.  The alumni sang the school song, “Mid the Hills of Benton County,” which was penned by the Class of 1917.  Dinner was served in the school cafeteria.

The Alumni Scholarship Fund provides essential support to students who are continuing their education. The Classes of 1953 and 1957 contributed. Individual donations were made by the following: Mary Ann Kinkead Inglish, Carol Laird, Jim Mathewson, Robert Drake, Marcia Laird Lucietta, Kay Lindsey, Jim & Shawn Reser Miller, Nick & Kathy Parker, Steven Thompson, Cheri Casper, Darrell and Marcy Cline, Ronnie & Linda Barnes Harpham, Keith & Linda Williams Pierson, Kyle Bartshe, Laveta Bradley Turpin, Ronald Holmes, Joe & Diane Bockelman, Dr. Shawn Poyser, Dr. John & Katie Boise, Aileen Mellen Pippins, Charles & Wilma Pryor Campbell, Don & Mary Pat Hirsch Wilde, Melvin & Sandy King Nelson, Dick & Leota Franks Kreisel, Turner & Wanda Shipman, Charlotte Spry, Robert & Beverly Kennedy, Junior & Dianne Martin Williams, James & Sandy Poe, John & Norma Harmon,  LeWayne Williams, Lonnie & LuAnne Reser Holmes, Danny & Tracy Dillion, Gary & Skipper Patterson Dodd, Mike & Tammy Byrum Rash, Thad & Kristy Henderson, Lance & Linda Flippin Swearngin, Marilyn Reser McCain, JD & Kathryn Findley, Joyce Kinkead, Doug & Sue McDaniels Stevens and Jim & Janine Carney .
