Alumni enjoy reunion, campus

On behalf of the Snohomish High School Class of 1963 Reunion Committee, I wish to extend a special thank you to principal Beth Porter for taking the time to personally lead us on a tour of our alma mater. Our Friday visit to SHS was the perfect kickoff event for the 50th reunion weekend.

We were impressed by the obvious pride everyone takes in that beautiful campus — from the ROTC students, who were drilling that afternoon, to new football coach Kai Smalley, who gave us a big cheer. We are particularly pleased that so much of the “old” has been respected, preserved and incorporated into the current buildings, especially the giant red “S” and the free-throw circles from the gymnasium floor. And seriously, someone from Lydig Construction must have had to chip a lot of gum from beneath those bleachers before they could be re-used as part of the hallways.

As with most graduating classes, we have a tendency to think that our class of ‘63 was the best to ever grace those halls. Of course, in our case that is absolutely true, but it’s also nice to know that the current graduating class can take just as much pride in being part of an outstanding school as we do.
