Why join the Garrett Schools Alumni Association (it’s only $10)?
The Aeolian, our GHS yearbook, used to include the alumni lists by year. Orville DePew, a GHS alumni association officer in 1924, wrote in the Aeolian that year:
“Nothing serves better to recall fond memories of our high school days, with their inspiration and friendliness, than to gather annually to renew our relations that
are more than mere friendships and acquaintances.”
Fast forward nearly a century – to 2022. It’s a very different world, but I believe Orville DePew’s words are as true now as they were then. Do you?
Our current tag line says it simply: “Staying on track, together, through the decades.”
