29th Annual Mays Alumni Banquet held May 18


As we’re sailing along so quickly, coach Bud King reminded president Joe to go back and call the roll of the remaining classes. Then he had all the guests stand. We enjoyed comments from Shirley Hinshaw, whose husband Alan “Stud” Hinshaw was a favorite basketball referee at Mays ballgames.

The class of 1940 took the honors for having both the oldest man and woman present. The oldest lady was Doris Adams Ferguson, beating Evelyn Marhsall Ellis by a few months and the oldest man present was Marc Ellis. Teachers present were, Bud King, Marc Ellis, Evelyn Ellis, Max Gosnell and Kenneth Brashaber.

There were seven attending who have not missed an alumni, and they are: Marc Ellis, Evelyn Ellis, Joan Loudenback Gardner, Maurice Oldham, Mary Ruth Strain, Bob Hallgarth, and Jane Hallgarth. The Wager and McIntosh families each had 4 family members present. McIntosh: Gearldean, Jackie, Judy & Sylvia and Wager: John, Janet, Susie and Diana. Congratulations to both families.

Winning the box of chocolates for traveling the farthest was Roberta Hood Rebiskie coming from Alma, Kan. Sharlene Simmermon’s name was drawn for a free meal for next year. Curtis Campbell was attending for the first time. Although he did not graduate from Mays, he attended high school here in the mid 60s.

The slate of officers was presented for the coming year: President Joe Hodson, vice president Linda McDaniel Lowe, secretary/treasurer Jane Leisure Hallgarth and assistant secretary/treasurer Jerry Delay. Al Weber made a motion to accept the slate and the motion was seconded by Joan Webb. The motion carried.

The corresponding date for next year’s meeting is May 17, 2014.

Joe thanked all of the committees and mentioned that Derrith Simmermon had made the book marks that were our favors this year. The committee thanks everyone for their generous donations. We closed the meeting by having all former cheerleaders lead us in singing the school song, “On Mays High School.”

The meeting was adjourned, and the remainder of the evening was spent visiting.
