From time to time various folks have assisted me with supplying
information, pictures, and yearbooks for the web pages you see
here. The design was basically my attempt to give each class
an area that was separate and individual. My cousin Nancy
even helped with the cut and paste of some of the pictures because
I got in over my head on the first run and ran out of time.
There were over 2000 pictures from '62-'68 that had to be placed,
along with the basic design that I did. My wife has tolerated my
putting more time into this than I should... which is of course what
a work-a-holic always does. I used those pictures to generate
a name badge for each attendee at the reunion. Avery Label Pro
works great in combination with the database and pictures.
The Kansas City Library has assisted me with yearbooks that I
didn't have. Ms. Linda Eckinger from the library helped in 1998.
Kathy Simmons, Branch Manager, also has been a help with
providing yearbooks I didn't have.
Eddie Forbes ('56) and brother
Kenny Forbes ('58) have been
so kind as to provide '56, '57, and '58 yearbooks. This was
wonderful in that it completes the early years and gives me some
insight into the founding of the Van Horn Era.
Dan Meder ('63) has assisted
me with processing information related to several different years.
Dan also was able to furnish the 1959 yearbook I needed.
Bob McClain ('71)
called and offered a 1970 yearbook which I have on line now.
Teressa Thomson ('76) provided
yearbooks for 1974, 1975, and 1976.
Helen Rozgay ('66) was able to provide 1962, 1963, and 1964 yearbooks.
Helen has a lot of relatives that went to Van Horn.
Ken Larson ('68) provided a 1968
yearbook from another friend. He couldn't find his.
Connie (Dickinson) Halastik ('78)
helped with the 1977, 1978 yearbooks.
Jim Blau ('69) was able to
provide a 1969 yearbook. Linda
Jones ('73) was able to provide a 1971 and 1972 yearbook so I could
grab a couple of pages that had been damaged in the books that I had.
Cheryl Jeffries ('73) was
also kind enough to loan me a '73 yearbook to get some damaged pages
scanned. Glenda Baker ('73)
was able to loan me a '73 commencement flyer and a '71 Super Falc ribbon.
Shannon McBride ('91) was kind enough to loan me her '89 and '90
yearbooks. (It seems '91 was damaged in a basement flood.)
Chris Chrisco is providing his
copies of the 1999 and 2000 yearbooks, along with commencement flyers.
2001 it seems was never produced although he has a copy of the
yearbook cover that was proposed. It seems that they ran out
of time and money and the yearbook didn't make it.
Jana Johnson ('87) offered her
1985, 1986, and 1987 yearbooks. Jana also had the '87 Commencement
Flyer and Baccalaureate, along with the 1988 Commencement Flyer.
Patricia Hoskins ('70) and husband
Kenneth Lee ('67) provided a copy
of the '67 Commencement Flyer.
Pam Peden ('66) was able to
furnish a '66 commencement flyer.
('83) provided me with a 1983 yearbook and commencement flyer.
Marion J. Van Rest, A+ Coordinator at Van Horn ('02) was kind enough
to help with the 1998 yearbook and the 2002 yearbook. She is
also helping with obtaining the other years I am missing. Jim
Clark, a former teacher, donated the 1993 yearbook.
Bill Chauncey and
Judy (Mead) Chauncey were kind
enough to run down their copy of the 1962 Graduation Flyer and I now
have it on line, along with the Baccalaureate program from '62.
Hattie Williams ('95) was kind enough to provide the 1994 and 1995
yearbooks for this effort, along with a graduation flyer from 1995.
Janet Herman has been able
to help with a 1972/3/4 Original Class commencement flyer (only had
BW copies of 1972/3 previously) and a 1973 Class Baccalaureate flyer.
Alice Morton ('73) offered a
suggestion that I add current event info to the alumni bio page so
that when folks are checking on a friend they might also see what's
happening. I've added that feature. Keep up the good ideas folks!
Thank you to all the providers!
Class Coordinators have all helped with
information about prior graduates. I could sure use current information
on any graduate that you know about. I'm sure the coordinators can use
all the help they can get to locate and notify folks about these reunions.
In the unfortunate circumstance that one of the graduates is
deceased, please let us know about that too. Date and location
of death would be nice. I also have an errors
page that will denote errors and corrections. I have room to put
additional information on line about a grad... whatever it may be.
Links to web pages, email, and such are available. If you don't have
a class coordinator listed for your class, please submit one as appropriate.
