NEW POINT – Former students of the New Point School held their annual reunion at the New Point Community Center Saturday, June 28.

Members from the graduating classes of 1944, 1954 and 1964 were recognized, along with approximately 100 other former students and their guests. Keeping with school tradition, the event opened with the Pledge of the Allegiance to the Flag and a prayer by Brother John Williams, ‘54. Gerald Lawrence, ‘48 served as Master of Ceremonies.

A moment of silence in memory of high school graduates and others who died during the past year were recognized including Mable Larrison Selke ‘37, Loretta Wanner Graf ‘38, Ethel Weber George ‘41, Anthony Geis ‘43, Harry R. Thackery ‘50, Margaret Martin Jones ‘52, Loren Haley ‘54, Robert Dugle ‘62 and John David Turner ‘67. Vases with yellow and white flowers and blue and gold ribbons adorned the tables to commemorate those who died during the past year.

Honored guests from the Class of 1954 included William Bate, Mary Louise (Miller) Cramer, Louis Kinker, Arlene (Miller) Parker and Eleanor (Volk) Yager. Those attending from the 1964 graduating class were: Carol (Cook) Kendall, Janice (Cornett) Ufferman, Helen (Mayes) Williams, Sharon (Westerfeld) Cobler and John Williams.

A highlight of the evening was honoring Nelrose Ruble Cook, a member of the Class of 1944 who was accompanied by her daughter Carol, an honoree from the Class of 1964. Goldia Miller, ‘31, the school’s oldest living graduate attended along with 3 of her children. Letters from alumni who could not attend were shared with the group.

It was announced that Father John Geis, ‘53, celebrated his Golden Jubilee in the priesthood this past year. He was praised for this achievement as well as his continuing service for the Catholic Church post-retirement. Janet Barber Duval, ‘59, was recognized for receiving the Alumni Legacy Leader Award from Indiana University School of Nursing, an award given in commemoration of its 100th Anniversary.

Plaques honoring World War I and World War II veterans from Saltcreek Township were displayed during the event. Plans are being made to have them restored and hung in the New Point Community Center. Ruth Peters Ainsworth and Marion Marsh, ‘43, were in attendance, and both were honored for their wartime service.
