As part of this celebration, we voted to find a way to give back to our school and also show our great respect for the teachers present during our senior year.
Thanks to the generosity of many class members, we were able to do three things for the school in commemoration of our 50th Reunion: assist in current operations; create a legacy in honor of our teachers; and recognize current GHS faculty with a small gift.
For our tribute to the teachers of 1961, we had a plaque made which Dr. Dixon will place in the teachers’ lounge.
“Thank You to the 1961 Faculty and Staff of ”
Below this are the names and disciplines of every teacher and staff member at GHS in 1961.
Finally, we honored the current GHS faculty. In response to a generous challenge grant issued to the class by a classmate, our class raised $3,100 to be used by the faculty to benefit the school. We presented this check to Dr. Dixon at the May faculty meeting.
