ANNOUNCEMENTS

A Heads-Up...

Next summer will be 55 years since our high school graduation!  Within the next few months, we will be beginning to make plans for a 55th Reunion Celebration. No date has been chosen at this time but we'll let you know as soon as a date is locked in.

In the meanwhile, would you please make sure your information on this website is up-to-date. And pass the information along to anyone you're in touch with who may not be registered on our site, to get registered. It's easy and it's FREE!

If you have not been to a reunion yet, this would be a good time to come since there many not be too many more... Ouch! Too harsh?

You have probably renewed friendships with some classmates via FB. Well, this will be your opportunity to renew Face-to-Face. If you have no interest in it, talk to someone who has attended one in the past. You may learn that it's a good time. 

Let's keep in touch...

My Most Embarrassing High School Moment

     I was a Co-Op student, and as a class project we had to do a product demonstration. I decided to use something called an emersion heater. It was just a cheap “Made in Japan” (the equivalent of made in China today) coiled wire with a plastic handle and an electric cord. You plugged it in, put it in a cup of water, and shortly it would boil the water. On the day of the demonstration, I skillfully placed a cup of water on top of the glass display case, plugged the heater in, and set it in the cup of water, all the while praising the attributes of my product. I then lifted the heater out of the water, and as I was saying: “You can see just how hot it gets...” the radiant red coil began to melt in my hand. A piece of it dropped on the glass display case, and cracked the thick glass, bringing my demonstration to a climatic and sudden end.

   I was so dumbfounded, I just stood there staring at the thing. Mr. Hartman (whom everyone called "The Goblin"), jumped out of his seat, ran to where I was, and unplugged it. My classmates howled with laughter, I turned as red as the heater, and the goblin’s face was as white as...well, a goblin.    

     A couple of decades later I was in Dallas, TX, managing a mortgage office. The prospective mortgagee I was interviewing happened to be a former AHHS Co-Op student, about eight years my junior. When I told him my demonstration story, his eyes got big, and pointing at me like I was a movie star said: “OH MY GOD, YOU’RE THE ONE!” He then went on to tell me that Hartman used my experience as a teaching example (probably until the day he retired) on becoming totally familiar with your product before demonstrating it. Let me tell you, after hearing that, I forever empathized with Vinko Bogataj, the hapless Yugoslavian skier, whose spectacular wipeout (The Agony of Defeat) was shown week after week on the opening credits of the Wide World of Sports. Some things we just never live down.
