SATURDAY - JUNE 22, 2013
Cathy Bontley Brown '63,
Melba Roddy McKnight,
Dee Dee Winter '62
Over 500 Colts attended the 16th annual Alumni Association Open House. The Alumni Board hosted the event and provided refreshments. For the first time the event was held in the new AHS Cafeteria.
The Alumni Band brought back memories with a traditional favorite - "The Horse" and the fight song and Alma Mater never sounded better! The Class of 1963 held the opening event of their 50th Reunion at Open House and were honored for their support of the Alumni Assoc.
Many former teachers were in attendance, including Mrs Melba Roddy.
This was the first Open House Mrs Roddy has attended.
Alumni members of the Choraliers along with Miss Ellis, performed, "You'll Never Walk Alone". The performance proved to be very emotional for everyone there. During the song, Miss Ellis turned and handed her baton to Dinah Menger - who will continue the tradition of performing this Colt tradition at OPen House. For over 60 years - the song has been performed at graduation. Dinah just left the AHS faculty to take a position at Baylor - but will put Open House on her calendar for years to come!
Scholarship recipients were introduced and congratulated for receiving a $1,000 alumni scholarship award.
