President’s Blog, December 2015

It is the most wonderful time of the year with family and friends gathering to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Thinking back to our younger days, especially being away from academics for a couple of weeks during the holiday seasons, wasn’t it a special time for each of us. Now for many of us with our own families we can create special memories for this time of the year. I want to wish each of the WHS alumni a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The winter issue of the Husky has been sent out to Alumni and once again the writers and editor have compiled wonderful stories and pictures for you to enjoy. If you ever have the opportunity to thank these individuals, please do so. They are the individuals who strive to keep you informed and treat you to excellent stories about WHS Alumni. We have an awesome Alumni Association, and members constantly inform me about our positive Alumni Newsletter. So please let those responsible for the Husky know you appreciate their efforts for you.

Until my next blog, remember to keep in contact with classmates, plan your next class reunion, support WHS, renew your membership and remain active. If you are currently not a member, please consider joining. You can go to our website at and sign up as well as find out about the Association.

A continuing item of importance to alumni is please only use the web site that is for our association. There is a site that some have gotten on which says it is the Winterset Alumni site. This is incorrect so please do not sign up for their products or membership. This email address is Please avoid this site.
