Tuscola, IL High School Alumni and where they were in 1925.
THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
The Alumni Association, as it exists at present, is the outgrowth of the desire of the class of '23 to be assured of a reunion at the Christmas season. At its last meeting before graduation a temporary organization was effected and officers were chosen as follows: President, Max Vest '23 ; Vice-President, Everett Stacy '00; Secretary, Miss Lida Hunt '98 ; Treasurer, Mrs. Hazel Lear '16. These officers were given instructions to make plans for an alumni banquet during the holidays and to make any and all arrangements as they saw fit.
Notices were put in the county papers and all alumni interested were asked to send their names and money to the treasurer. As a result of the remarkable cooperation of the officers and various committees, one hundred and fifty alumni responded to the call of Alma Mater.
Each general officer agreed to be responsible for a certain amount of the work on arrangement. Mr. Stacy assumed the chairmanship of the committee to select a place and menu. Mr. Vest, with the members of the class of 23, was to be responsible for decorations. Miss Lida Hunt agreed to raise the funds, and Mrs. Bertha England Flack was chairman of the program committee and succeeded in enlisting representatives of different classes to take part.
Judge Boggs of Urbana was one of the distinguished alumni who was present, and Mrs. Laura McCarty Vance, of New York City, was the alumna from the greatest distance.
It is interesting to note that the Tuscola High School has representatives all over the United States and in foreign lands. Dr. Arthur Boyce. who is teaching in the Boys' School at Teheran, Persia, is one of whom we may well be proud. Hon. Samuel C. Reat, United States consul at Calgary, Canada, has served in the course of his career at Maurituis, in Formosa, India, and Canada.
