Wakonda’s alumni get new members

Wakonda's alumni get new members
Last month's WHS Alumni meeting enabled old members to hand off to the new members. The much-deserved rest will be welcome as this last board put on a huge all-school reunion in July.

Discussion topics included ideas such as alumni brainstorming for commemorating Wakonda High School's 100th anniversary.

Suggestions included the possibility of putting together a history book to coincide with the next All School Reunion in 2010, Wakonda's 125th anniversary. These ideas were proposed but nothing has been official yet.

The alumni financial report from All School Reunion-Scholarship Fund raised $1632.07 and the class quilts made $291.

Wakonda's new alumni members are Gordon Jensen, Audrey Larson, Jim Logue, Marcia Morrison, Jill Mockler, Kayla Nielsen and Lindsay Nelson.

Special thanks were given to outgoing board members Leroy Clare, Wanda Young, Carol Vognild, Gwen Orr, Bev Orr, Mike Pollman, and Erin Haver.

Comments from the reunion were very favorable. The alumni directories will be available for purchase for $4 at First Premier Bank. Further discussion will take place at the next meeting in February 2006.
