Graduates of Lyman High School returned to the county last week to celebrate school reunions Friday and Saturday night. Several classes met individually Friday night and then gathered for an all school reunion at the Medicine Creek Golf Course Clubhouse Saturday, July 25.
Approximately 55 association members registered. In addition, a number of spouses also attended.
After a meal prepared and furnished by the clubhouse staff and alumni who brought dishes to share, Norval Millard, 1st vice president welcomed the alumni, and announced Caitlin Uthe of Presho as the winner of the 2015 alumni scholarship of $500. A collection was taken for next year’s scholarship, which is open to any Lyman alumni in their second year of post secondary study. The application deadline is April 1st.
Only one Lyman graduate, Kevin Thayer, a 1980 grad, was added to the list of deceased graduates. Dean Reumann, a 1974 alumni, was elected to serve as the new 2nd vice president to replace president Jim Cole, whose term expired this year.
Members of the honor classes in attendance were recognized, including those from 1975, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, and 2005. There were no graduates from the class of 1980 or 2010 in attendance.
A LHS trivia game was played that encompassed school history from the honored years.
It was the consensus of the assembled group of alumni that they liked meeting at the club house and unless the size of the crowd increases greatly, they would continue to meet at the golf course on the last Saturday of July.
