Perhaps it’s my age, or the love I have for old friends from my 1956 class, but as I search the Internet for friends that I enjoyed life with in high school, I keep finding obituaries. I already notified this site of the passing of Lena Corwin Magly and Don Shea (friends I found on the Internet) and today I discovered another obituary (not listed herein on the In Remembrance area) Jane Vaughn Hubrich a 1956 alumni, who passed away on February 25, 2022. I feel very blessed to have reached the age of 85 and still be in excellent health. My love and prayers go out to my friends who have gone on to their final reward! God bless their souls.

Thank you Chris Williams. Your response tells me that SOMEONE DOES READ THESE POSTS. I don’t think anyone from the class of 1956 ever reads or participates in the Colerain Message Board. God bless you for being a caring person! Live long and prosper!

Hello, alumni!
I am a ’74 graduate. I’m currently writing a “then and now” type of article for the Colerain Gal Pals, Class of ’74, as well as the 100th Year Anniversary Committee. It’s my hope to interview the earliest graduate I can find and a recent graduate. I’d like to get each of their perspectives on a number of topics about their high school years. I’d also like to include a photo.
My questions will be respectful and I will not submit without the individuals’ approval.
Any leads/volunteers/recommendations are most welcome!
Sincerely,

My Mother, Ruth J. Listerman (Maiden Last Name….Herrmann) is
probably one of the OLDEST LIVING MEMBERS of Colerain Education.
She is now 94 years old. She remembers attending Colerain High School
with only twenty-seven members in her class. Unfortunately, many
Colerain High School young men quit school in order to join the
military to fight in Europe and/or Japan during World War II.
Please remember USA Veterans.
Thank You…Jim Listerman / Colerain High School Class Of 1969.

Hello, Jim:
My name is Kathy Abrams (class of ’74) and I am new to the discussion board. This morning I posted about my intent to write an article comparing the perspectives of an early graduate and a recent graduate on their high school years. Do you think your mother would be interested? You’re welcome to contact me for more details. Ultimately, I hope to submit the article to the 100th Anniversary Committee, as well as the Colerain Gal Pals ’74 newsletter.
Thank you for your consideration.

My moms name was Ruth Listermann (Henry) she did not go to Colerain but didn’t know there was two Ruth Listermann’s I guess she spelled it with the one N. I graduated Colerain in 1991.

I see that the in remembrance section shows Sally E Williams ‘93 passed away. I knew her quite well in high school. She was so cool and gave me rides to school. I can’t find an obituary for her anywhere on the web and wondered how the alumni found out about her passing? If you do have a link for her obituary, I would appreciate if you could sent it to me.

The graduating Class of 2024 from Colerain High School will be the 100th. As part of our Century Celebration we are trying to locate Colerain’s oldest living graduate. We think they would have graduated between the year’s 1941-49. This would make them about 91-100 year’s old.. If anyone knows of a relative or friend who graduated in those years and is still alive please contact Denny Hirsch 513-404-5679 or dennykathy3@yahoo.com

My uncle, Dale McCann, was a 1948 CHS graduate. He died on March 20, 2023, in Mason, OH, age 93. There’s a public memorial service on Saturday, May 6th, at the Stone Center at the Christian Village at Mason, 411 Western Row Rd. Visitation starts at 10:00 a.m., with the memorial service following at 11:00 a.m. If you knew Dale McCann, you’re welcome to attend and meet his children.
Uncle Dale was a sibling of my mom, Patricia McCann Wells, who also had graduated from Colerain HS. I know that Dale had attended reunions in the past, probably several years ago, so didn’t know if any of his classmates are still alive.

Colerain High School’s 100th Anniversary Celebration

Colerain High School will be celebrating its 100th anniversary during the 2023 – 2024 school year.  Since its first class in 1925, more than 32,000 students have graduated from Colerain.  The Class of 2024 will be the 100th graduating class.  

To commemorate this milestone, a committee is being formed to plan events throughout the coming year that highlight the rich history of the school.  From academics to performing arts to athletics, Colerain’s students have excelled and brought notoriety to the school and community over the years.  Alumni have used their education in many ways as they entered the workforce, served in the military or continued their education in college.  Regardless of the path chosen, the common thread for each graduate was the solid foundation and support provided by their dedicated teachers, counselors, coaches and administrators.

An organizational meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 28 at 6:00 p.m. at the high school for anyone who would like to participate in the planning of the Century Celebration.  For additional information, please contact Denny Hirsch at dennykathy3@yahoo.com.

Hello, 
I wanted to inform the Colerain High School alumni Association that my mother, Carla Meier (Class of 1964) passed away on May 2, 2022, after a short bout with terminal cancer. My mother moved to the Detroit, MI area in the early 1970’s and became very active in state politics in her later years. Carla is very much missed by family and friends alike. Please read her obituary here: https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/name/carla-meier-obituary?id=34638530 
She always had fun memories and happy stories about her time at CHS.

Dear Friends,
 
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:
 
Dave Kremer
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 drk7645@fuse.net

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your dedication to a great cause. 

Sincerely, 

Dave and Cheryl Kremer
