November 07, 1997|By Christy Kruhm | Christy Kruhm,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

SOUTH CARROLL High School will celebrate "Thirty Years of Excellence" at its 30th-anniversary reception Nov. 14 at the high school in Winfield.

School officials are inviting former and current students, staff and the community to the reception. A short program will highlight the school's history and will include musical presentations by the band and chorus, service awards to staff, and refreshments. Building tours will begin at 7 p.m.

South Carroll opened in September 1967. Chester Elder was the principal, a position he held until his retirement in 1990. David Booz is the current principal.

Several faculty members will be celebrating 30 years at the school. They are: Pat King, Walter McWilliams, Naudine Phoebus and Wayne Reisberg.

"Sometimes we take for granted what has happened in the past," Booz said. "This reception is a chance to honor those people for their years of service."

A T-shirt commemorating the anniversary will be for sale during the reception. Commercial art student Tracey McElroy designed the T-shirt.

Committee chairwoman Ruthann Pittinger said reservations are not necessary, but are encouraged so the school can prepare enough refreshments.
