Withrow Alumni Assn. Has New Leaders

My name is Dave Blocksom ’68, and I was elected President of your Alumni Association at our May Board of Trustees meeting. As a member of the Board of Trustees for the past five years, I’ve served as Vice President, Secretary, Chair of the Campus Maintenance Committee, Chair of the Archives Committee, and a member of the Finance, Data Base Management and Reunion Committees. I’m also the Alumni representative on the Withrow Local School Decision Making Committee, which advises the Principal. I retired six years ago from a 38 year career in the residential construction industry, the last 28 years of which I had my own custom home building and remodeling company. My Father (’38), uncles, sister (’74) and brother (’75) were Withrow grads and my Mom taught at Withrow (’67 – ’83). Lots of Tiger bloodlines. My Mom and aunts were Walnut grads (who knows why). I live in the Columbia-Tusculim area and have lived in the Withrow traditional school district my entire life.
