On September 1, 60 retired Withrow staff members gathered in the Alumni Center, which most remembered as the library, to kick off a year of events the Alumni Assn. has planned to celebrate Withrow’s Centennial. 

Along with socializing and reminiscing about their days at Ohio’s most beautiful public school, attendees enjoyed browsing through artifacts, lunch by Eatwell Catering, background music played by Withrow’s string ensemble, a welcome message from new principal Jerron Gray, and tours of the renovated school.

Help Purchase Spot Lights

All of the equipment and facilities necessary for producing stage shows, which was available in the 70’s is gone, and it’s now necessary to acquire it. For example, 2 powerful spotlights are necessary for proper stage lighting, and 2 new spot lights would cost over $35,000. However, past Stage Crew member Gary Beckstedt, Sr. ’69, now in Atlanta, has found 2 used spot lights that can be acquired for $6,000. Further, Gary has kicked off a spot light campaign with a donation of $500. Help us raise the money needed to purchase these lights while they’re still available by clicking HERE.
