Why can’t we look up who passed, name of fellow classmates, etc. The pull down tags under Alumni are for us to fill in. I so wish this site would return to what it was about 5 years ago.
I totally agree.
I also agree. This site has become very user unfriendly compared to what it was.

We all lost our wonderful friend, John Schulthess, in January. John was a caring and loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend to so many. As one classmate of Heidi’s expressed on Facebook “your dad treated everyone the same”.
As many of you know John was the “Voice of the Cardinals” at Colerain High School for 20 + years. Dave and Tom Eisenzimmer thought as a tribute to John, we as his friends, could set up a scholarship in John’s name at Colerain High School.
The students applying for the scholarship would complete an application and write an essay. The essay will be answering the question:
“How can you use the things you learned and experienced at Colerain High School to make the world a better place by volunteering with and mentoring young people?”
Colerain High School has a Scholarship Committee. The committee will read and select a student to be awarded the John Schulthess Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded on Senior Honors Night on April 28, 2022.
As John’s friends we wanted to extend an invitation to you to contribute to the John Schulthess Memorial Scholarship. We know there are a few friends interested but wanted to include everyone.
Please feel free to share the information with other friends, alumni and community members.
If you are interested, please make the check payable to Colerain High School Boosters. The Colerain Boosters have 501c status for tax purposes. Please send your donation by March 28, 2022 to:
7645 Squirrel Creek Dr. Cincinnati, Ohio 45247
Or you can donate at https://colerainalumni.com/donate/
Or you can send your donation electronically to Zelle at email@example.com
If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your dedication to a great cause.

Class of 1976
I see that now I am able to post again was in the doghouse a few years back during the Boldens era. I spoke the truth and will always do so. But enough concerning the past as an ex Cardinal football, basketball and track my heart will always been with Colerain High School and it’s sports program. To the new head football coach and staff. Coach Kerri Combs had a simple formula starting with the little Cards program being involved with the communities within Colerain township ensuring the individuals felt ownership. LaSalle program come up was due to the Boldens. So football coaches to return the program to it’s high standards become totally involved at all levels. Looking forward to next football season.
Will there be a class reunion in 2023 for the class of 1973

Colerain Girls Basketball history was made last night at Seton High School. Abbey McNally Class of 2022 set the Career Scoring Record, scoring 28 points in a 47-40 Colerain victory. The 28 points gives her a total of 1311 career points passing Ashley Wanninger ’10 who had 1297 points. Abbey also holds the career rebounding record with 950. She passed Detra Neal ’85 who had 859. Abbey still has a number of games to play this year. Way to go Abbey!!!!
I was so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school. I loved the students, teachers, and staff. This newsletter “Chatter” is fantastic. I can see where so many people have made such great contributions–especially Denny Hirsch. I so enjoyed reviewing the past and the present. I enjoyed meeting your new principal the other day, and think she has Colerain’s best interest in mind. I look at the old days when I have Mr. Coombs, Mr. Sollman, Mr. Keith, Mr. Schiering, Mr. Kremer, and Mrs. Heintz–what a great time we had. I still recall funny happenings almost daily. I can’t forget the wonderful secretaries and administrative assistants. They all cared about the students and wanted the best for everyone. We were blessed with a great staff and students. We can’t forget Ken and Jerry Dirr and Margie Rennie as they were also instrumental in our success. Randy Seymour our District Treasurer helped all of us run our buildings efficiently,
I always look forward to seeing our students be successful! I am thankful for the wonderful programs in the Career Center — how badly we need skilled workers today..
Well, I will stop — I could go on forever about those terrific days.
Those days were some of the best days of my life.I am still in contact with many of many of former

As many of you know the University of Cincinnati Football Bearcats are the fourth seed in this years College Football Playoffs. They will play Alabama on New Years Eve. What you might not know is the Colerain football connection with UC. Darrian Beavers 2017 and Ja Von Hicks 2018 both start on defense. Eric Phillips 2019 and Deshawn Pace 2020, although not starting on defense, get significant playing time. Kyle Bolden 2017 serves as a graduate assistant. In addition Dontay Corleone 2021 was red shirted this year, and Ken Willis 2022 will sign to play football next year for the Bearcats. Go Bearcats and go Cardinals!!!!
What a wonderful connection to CHS and the entire Colerain community! WOW!
I am sorry to report that my sister, Kimberly Ann Patrick, Class of 1974, passed away in May, 2020.
ATTENTION CLASS of 1963!! I have reserved the Meritage Restaurant (Glendale) for a “Meet & Greet” on Saturday May 19th, 2023, and the following night for a dinner to celebrate our 60th Reunion! This the same restaurant that we held our 55th Reunion. Mark your calendars now (you can’t say that you haven’t been warned) and stay tuned for further details.
Thanks Luke for taking the lead to get his together.
Georgette and I look forward to coming up.
It is with great sadness I report the passing of my younger brother, Gary Keller. He graduated CHS in 1965. He was a veterinarian for 40 years. He made a huge impact on the people and animals in his life. He touched many on his path of life. He had Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. It is a protein, prion, that is in the brain and destroys all the brain cells. There is no treatment, cure and it is fatal. He will be missed by so many but leaves a memorable imprint on many hearts~!!
so sorry to hear!
