In an interesting twist, Hellmich attended IU and earned her degree through the Oscar Ewing Scholarship. Ewing, deceased since 1980, is a 1906 GCHS graduate and was also among the inaugural GCHS Hall of Fame inductee class.
Stewart, Craig and Hellmich alike expressed gratitude and humility at being named to the GCHS Hall of Fame.
“I never imagined something like this would ever happen to me,” Stewart said.
“I’m totally honored,” Craig said. “I want to thank everybody on the school board and the selection committee; I’m very indebted to those people for the honor.”
“I have to give the credit (for this award) back to this community, to my family and to GCHS,” Hellmich said. “It’s an honor that should be shared with all the people who got me to where I am now – class, family, community, teachers, God and guidance counselor.”
