New Alumni Group Forming

District graduates can register for a new alumni group at the Sept. 30 homecoming game. “We are still putting most of our time and effort into communicating with alumni through Facebook and our e-mail site,” said Don Williamson, one of the organizers. “To date, our Facebook group page has signed up over 700 TK grads.”

Word of the club is also being spread with area banners and T-shirt sales. “Our reorganization of the TKHS Alumni has taken us to some interesting areas of the school district, with the discovery of the school’s history, community and the alumni from 1932 to the present,” Williamson said.

The group started meeting earlier this year and getting the word out to former graduates has been its biggest job. Besides checking out the booth at homecoming, people interested in joining can contact Williamson at (269) 795-3030, e-mail him or e-mail the alumni group.
