Special Alumni Recognition NHS Alumna, Earline Wolfe Linder ’34, has attended all five AllClasses Reunions. Earline said, “I enjoy going, it’s just to see the people. They have a good time.” Earline shared some of her early childhood memories of family and school. “We lived in Alabama and my father worked in a quarry inspecting the holes where the explosives were to be placed. He inspected one where he did not know the explosives have been placed already. The explosion blew his right arm off and all but two fingers on his left hand.” The family moved to Hartland Township where, despite

the father’s handicap, they farmed. Since she wanted to go on to high school she had to get there herself. Her father bought a Ford Touring car and at the age of 14 she drove the eight miles to Norwalk High School, no drivers license or test needed! At the time Rt. 18 was half brick and half mud, but when asked if she ever missed school due to bad weather, she replied, “Never”. The accompanying picture of Earline is her graduation picture. She exclaimed, “I wore a burgundy velvet dress for the picture. I felt so special. I thought I was the “Queen of Sheeba”. Her class had 63 graduates pictured in the yearbook, “The Album”. Of interest to alumni from the 40s, 50s, and 60s is that the 1934 staff included Rev. Garcia, Mr. Laycock, Miss Mossman, Mr. Stevenson, Mr. Chandler, Mr. Rolsten, Mr. Smith, and Miss Bell. When asked about the August 19th reunion, she replied, “I’ll be there if I can.” We’re betting she will be there!

NPSAA Board Members Kathy Gormon Veith, Judy Poole Emmons, Sue Crossen McCreery, and Bob Mitchell attended the “Elegant Evening for the Arts” to invite everyone to the August 19th All-Classes Reunion.  

 

The trustees of The Endowment Fund for Norwalk City Schools held their 11th annual “Elegant Evening for the Arts” on Feb. 18, featuring the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. We are proud to notify our alumni of this wonderful event. This bene it alone has raised over $275,000, and the Fund has raised over 1 million dollars since its inception, in 2000. The Elegant Evening for the Arts, sponsored by Fisher-Titus Medical Center, featured exquisite Hors d'oeuvres and delicious desserts, all prepared and served by FTMC’s chefs and dietary dept. Two members of the Norwalk High School orchestra provided special music, Norwalk High School students and members of the Firelands Area Art League provided an outstanding exhibit of art work in the Art Gal lery, members of the Key Club served as

TWO UNDEFEATED BASKETBALL SEASONS 2011-2012 Boys' Basketball Historical Season The 2011-2012 edition of the Boys Basketball team finished the regular season 20-0. The last team to go undefeated in the regular season was the 1945-46 team. This year’s team went on to win Sectional & District Championships. Their run ended at Regionals against Toledo Whitmer, completing their season for a final record of 23-1. Highlights include:  The second perfect season in school history for basketball (see below)

 Back-to-back NOL champions!

NOL membership and first time in the school history dating back 80 years to 1931-32 when Norwalk was part of the "Little Big Seven" conference 700th win for the Boys' Basketball program The first perfect season for Coach Steve Gray

The first time ever in the 67 year

1945-1946 Boys' Basketball Historical Season Like this year’s team, to go undefeated, you have to win the close ones. The 1946 team did just that, barely getting by Sandusky by three points in their closest game. Starters for the 1945-1946 basketball team were seniors, John Motsch, Charles Chandler, Gordon Schaechterle and juniors, Don Sweet and Wally Meagrow.

First Row: Ryan Hull, Grant Hull, Chianti Ghalson, Darian Cook, Ben Haraway, Shane McGuckin Second Row: Trey Hallock, Kaleb Cashen, Jeff Thomas, Jake Fetherolf, Jacob Cashen, Cody Gregory, and Damius Peacock

1945 was also the first year of the Northern Ohio League, now recognized as the oldest continuous athletic conference in the State of Ohio. Their regular season consisted of 17 straight wins. They won their first tournament game against Tiffin Columbian, but the following night, after building up a very impressive 18 straight wins, they fell in an upset to Port Clinton.

Trucker Weight Station

First Row: Gordon Schaechterle, Don Sweet, John Motsch and Bill Patrick. Standing: Merle McConkey, Wally Meagorw, Coach Walls, Charles Chandler and Ted Jenkins

The Norwalk Athletic Boosters was authorized by the Norwalk City School Board of Education to begin to raise funds for a new weight training facility for all sports. The Norwalk Athletic Boosters are excited that this first phase is an achievable goal that will pay dividends for the Norwalk Athletic program (all sports) and providing support for grades 7-12 almost immediately. The Norwalk Athletic Boosters have been authorized by the Board of Education to raise funds to build a new weight training and conditioning facility to serve the needs of the athletic programs of the Norwalk City Schools. This facility will more than double the size of the current weight room and will be able to serve 50 – 60 athletes at a time. The total cost of this proposed facility will be approximately $475,000. The Athletic Boosters have earmarked approximately $100,000 for up-to-date weight equipment to outfit the room.

The Alumni Association’s project of making class composites of classes that had none continues. We have added this year to the gallery the classes of 1964, ‘65, and ‘76. As inances permit, we will continue to do more class composites. We will make a composite of any class whose members donate $50 or more toward having one created. The current set up cost is $95. All pictures in our gallery can be purchased. We have pictures of band uniforms dating back to 1924 and athletic teams from 1904. Contact Steve Bowen at snbbigoil@yahoo.com or Bob Mitchell at bobmary@roadrunner.com. Picture size determines the price, but most are $20.

Wheelchairs Available Kaiser-Wells will also once again have wheelchairs available to be used from the school entrance to the gym and back.

Additional Seating And...great news! We will add even more seating this year. Last year we added additional seating and it worked out well...so, we’ll add more this year! Come and join us for this fun event...we’ll save a seat, especially for YOU!

In Remembrance… Mrs. Mary (Hasselkus) Falke Mary Elizabeth Hasselkus of Toledo came to teach at Norwalk High School beginning the 1939-40 school year. She was employed to teach French, and for a few years she also handled some English classes. Mary told me in later years that she did her student-teaching in Latin! About 1945, she agreed to seek a Master’s Degree in Library Science and manage the school library. At that time the library was in the center room on the top floor next to the principal’s office. Many of us knew this later as Mrs. McConaha’s room. Eventually, the library moved to the large room at the east end of the top floor. At this point, Mary gave up teaching and worked full-time as a librarian. In 1956, she was married to Kendall Falke, Norwalk High School’s award-winning English teacher and Journalism advisor. For many years she carefully proofread each issue of the Signal. The yearbook indexes also were her work. She and Kendall retired at the end of the 1973 school year to Milan, where they restored a classic home to house their several collections. Kendall passed away August 3, 1997; Mary survived until September 21, 2011. —-Henry R. Timman, NHS Alumnus, Class of 1961
