ANNOUNCEMENTS

TOM HELLER INDUCTION INTO SPORTS HALL OF FAME:  KHS 1967 classmate Tom Heller will be inducted into the Nebraska High School Sports Hall of Fame on September 23, 2018.  Considered by many as the "best Kearney athlete ever", Tom was named high school "Athlete of the Year" in 1967 by both the Omaha World-Herald and the Lincoln Journal Star.  He was All-State in football and basketball, and qualified for the State track meet in the hurdles.  Kearney High won the Big 10 football championship game in 1967 when Tom rushed for 1,006 yards and scored 123 points to become the All-Time Big 10 Scoring Leader.  Heller, who coached football and basketball in Colorado, died in 2014 from ALS known as Lou Gehrig's disease.  Tom's wife, KHS 1967 classmate Sue Christensen Heller, told the Kearney Hub's Sports Editor Buck Mahoney that "besides his God-given talent, Tom worked very hard.  He was humble, thankful for his teammates and coaches, and always gave them credit.  I think he was admired by his players and their parents."  Click here to read the Hub's article about Tom and the interview with Sue.  If you were one of Tom's teammates and you'd like to join Sue at Tom's induction ceremony at Lincoln East High School at 1000 South 70th Street in Lincoln, the reception will start at 12 noon followed by the induction ceremony at 1:30 p.m. on September 23.  Tickets to the reception and induction ceremony are $25 for adults and $10 for K-12 students.  Pre-K children are admitted for free.  To purchase tickets before the September 12th deadline, please call Shelby Hageman Wallen with the Nebraska Sports Council in Lincoln at 402-471-2544 ext. 101 or click here to download the Ticket Order Form.  Congratulations, Tom and Sue!

CELEBRATING OLD KEARNEY HIGH:  Kearney's First Baptist Church purchased our old Kearney High School buildings and campus in October 2016.  The church has announced plans to honor all 1961-2016 graduates in the new front entry way and arch.  The church will also put all graduates' names on-site in a Memory Room with yearbooks, old wood paneling, pictures, and signs to honor the memory of the students, faculty and staff who made the old KHS building into a wonderful place of learning and growth, impacting thousands of lives.  The church is offering engraved wood plaques and bricks from the original KHS building as "Thank You" gifts for all donations to its Building Fund.  For more information about the church's building plans and fundraising campaign, call the First Baptist Church office at 308-234-2311 or visit:  www.kearneyfb.org/oldkhs/ 

OUR FABULOUS 50TH REUNION!   Thanks to all 67 classmates (yes, exactly 67 classmates attended from the Class of '67!) plus 53 spouses and guests or 120 total attendees at our 50th Reunion on September 8-9, 2017, in Kearney.  (See larger photos on the "50th Reunion in 2017" webpage!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We enjoyed eating, drinking, and visiting with classmates at The Great Platte River Road Archway and the Kearney Country Club, and guided tours of the new Kearney High School led by Lisa Reese Parish from the Kearney Public Schools Foundation, and our old Kearney Junior High (now Central Elementary) and auditorium (now the Merryman Performing Arts Center) led by Mary Haeberle, retired Junior High School Secretary.

Special thanks to our guest speakers Tom Henning and Pete Kotsiopulos, and five former KHS teachers (Riley Harris, Denny Long, Bobbie McKenzie, Judy Shrock, and Marv Shafer) who joined us at the Holiday Inn, thanks to invitations coordinated by Jere' Sue Browers Schroer. 

 

Trudy Martin Else's KHS/KJHS Memorabilia table and centerpiece decorations were wonderful!  Kathleen Anthes "In Memory" table had photos of all 27 deceased classmates.  Rod Murrish's Veterans table recognized all 34 classmates who served our country as military veterans.  Susan Houchin provided beautiful calligraphy for our "In Memory" and Veterans tables.  Lynne Deyle Heiden produced an outstanding video of photos and music from our high school years.  Click here to watch the 20-minute YouTube video; you must have speakers on your computer to hear the music.

Congratulations to Jim Lane, Susan Houchin, and Dick Oliver who were finally recognized as our three Class Valedictorians!  (Class Secretary/Treasurer Charlotte Wilken Webb is holding the Valedictorian certificate and "Honor" medal of academic achievement that has now been received by Dick Oliver with his thanks!)  Jere' Sue Browers Schroer obtained frames for the certificates signed by current KHS Principal Dr. Jay Dostel and academic achievement medals of "Honor" from Josten's.

Karen Casey Shelmadine, Mike Kneese, Trudy Martin Else, Scott Nelson, Sue Christensen Heller, Tay Tollefsen, and Jeanne Thatcher Bogner provided the extra school spirit needed to lead us in singing the "Spirit of KHS" school song with music provided by the 2017 KHS Varsity Band.  (Click the link to listen!)

Franny Hauver Madsen, JoAnn Spahr Sear, and Barb Bellamy Woythaler co-hosted the "After Party" in the backyard at Tom and Franny's home across the street from Pioneer Park.
