GHHSAA MISSION STATEMENT
To promote the welfare of the Grandview Heights School System and to encourage fellowship among the Grandview Heights Alumni.
Dear Fellow Bobcats:
Thank you for sending in your dues and contributions! GHHS Alumni are extremely generous and we appreciate your support.
Three new Distinguished Alumni were recently inducted bringing the total to 27 over seven years. All nominees not yet honored will be considered in future years. We thank all who submitted nominations and congratulate this year’s honorees.
I am honored and humbled to serve as your newest GHHSAA President. The previous presidents’ shoes will be hard to fill. The association originated in the 1920’s and 1930’s, but was unable to sustain momentum and operate continuously. The current GHHSAA was incorporated in the State of Ohio in 1981 with its first president Bob Keitz ’39 doing a wonderful job for more than six years. Stan “Bucko” Jones ’51 took the reins for most of the next ten years. He organized alumni participation in the Grandview Heights Memorial Day Parade and the Alumni Night football games. He was instrumental in soliciting donations to continue the newsletters and GHHSAA scholarships. Gunner Riley ’59 was the third President. He brought the association into the computer age, planted the seeds for Distinguished Alumni recognition and started involving the GHHSAA in current school projects. Ron Harris ’56 has served the last four years and played a major role in the GHHS auditorium renovation, getting the website http://grandviewheightsalumni.com online, upgrading the newsletter, starting the Legacy Society and basically being a real hard act to follow. I salute each and every one of these men and their board members for their hard work, dedication and love of Grandview Heights.
Now, what can I do? Most people know that I can do a little bit of everything, but am not great at anything except perhaps organizing. The GHHSAA Board has many great meetings throughout the year and every meeting produces great ideas. In most cases, we have the funds to pursue those great suggestions, but we rarely have enough volunteers to execute the plans.
I need you! Please join our GHHSAA Volunteer Group. Could you help re-establish the Alumni vs. GHHS Faculty Basketball Game? Could you be the main contact for your graduating class and help us maintain your classmates’ contact information. Are you out of town? Would you like to start a GHHSAA group in your city or state? What do you think about having an annual Alumni Talent Show? Let me know how you think the
GHHSAA should serve the City of Grandview Heights, the schools and, most importantly, the alumni.
The GHHSAA is YOUR association and it’s a great association. Let me know if you can help make it even better for everyone.
