Another Successful Community Hall of Fame Banquet!
A stellar class of honorees was inducted into the Community Hall of Fame at the 27th annual banquet and induction ceremonies on Tuesday, November 12th at Century Center in downtown South Bend. The Alumni Association is proud to lift up these individuals who have distinguished themselves and our city through their careers and their personal lives. Coming from many different backgrounds and making their marks in many different fields, they reflect the rich mosaic of talent, leadership and commitment which makes our community vibrant, caring and successful. Inductees are permanently enshrined on the Wall of Fame along the south entry into our convention center, where residents and visitors can learn about our proud history of innovation, creativity, philanthropy, volunteerism and community service. Make plans to join us next November to celebrate the extraordinary contributions of our 28th class of inductees and award winners.

Attention Alumni of Adams High School
A member of the Class of 1951 stopped by the school recently to say that the class is no longer having reunions, and they would like to donate left-over money to the school. After several meetings, they decided to contribute to a project to erect an eletronic sign in front of the school. If other classes would like to participate in the effort, they will be recognized on an engraved plaque that will be part of the sign. For information, stop by the school and see Principal Otha Reese or Secretary Barbara Burns. Either can be reached at (574) 283-7700. Or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any checks should be made out to John Adams High School, attention Otha Reese.
