New HSE Schools Alumni Association debuts

0

A new alumni association for Fishers High School and Hamilton Southeastern High School graduates debuted last week during each school’s homecoming.

“We want the connectedness, we want to tell the stories,” HSE Schools Foundation board member Tim Rogers said, “and we want to provide for those who are coming out right now to create that legacy within the community.”

Past HSE school board member and liason to the HSE Schools Foundation Jeff Sturgis started planning the new association last year, and the project comes to fruition under foundation board members Rogers and David Ayars and school board members John Delucia and Diane Eaton.

The new group aims to help graduates from the town’s two high schools, as well as the first Fishers High School, network, tell the stories of alumni who went on to do big things or had a different experience in the school system and build a legacy for students.

According to Delutia and Rogers, alumni are already signing up and offers to establish scholarships for the town’s students have been extended.

Delutia said the Alumni Association will legally stand on its own as an independent not-for-profit but will work closely with the foundation and board.

“The concept here is that you have two great schools, one awesome community,” Rogers said. “While we have the traditions of each high school, when they graduate we want to create an alumni association that speaks to the totality of the community.”

While preparing to help build a local chapter of the association, Delutia and Rogers said the element of fun, as well as getting the newest generation of FHS and HSE graduates involved in the group with events like high school visits.

The local chapter will have its own officers and bylaws to follow.

Different generations have already signed on with the alumni association, including those from the 1970s.
