Warrior Spirit Then & Now

Nancy Lawson and Nanci (Shook) Stevenson (‘65) reminisced about the fun they had in Pep Club.

The 2017 Westside football team boasted an 8-3 record, a playoff appearance, and a noticeably spirited student body. Currently, students generate school spirit through assemblies that recognize academics, athletics, behavior, and activities. Cheerleaders teach the fight song to homerooms and organize theme nights at sporting events. A strong social media presence, including school-sponsored Twitter accounts, continues to foster school pride.

1965 Pep Club members Phyllis (Donaldson) Choat, Anne Leigh Hellbusch, Nancy Lawson, Jackie (Hauptmann) Nagle and Nanci (Shook) Stephenson shared their experiences as Pep Club members. Though it’s been 52 years since they wore their From the time Westside High School opened uniforms, they fondly remember their time in 1952 through the mid-1970s the Pep in Pep Club.

The ladies recalled earn the coveted red “W” patch to sew on that although the rules were strict, few their sweaters. After getting their “W”, they questioned them as they were such a vital

part of the overall Pep Club experience. They appreciated the sense of unity and school pride the club created. “When you think of someone back in high school you think of them in their Pep Club uniform,” said Nanci (Shook) Stephenson. By the mid-1970s, Pep Club membership declined significantly. In 1977, Pep Club’s last year, The Shield stated, “People just don’t want so much organization.” Changing attitudes towards uniformity and selfexpression and an increasing number of girls’ sports opportunities may have contributed to the decline of Pep Club. Jackie (Hauptmann) Nagle really enjoyed her time in Pep Club. “You always knew what to wear on Fridays.” she said. Pep Club may be gone, but its embodiment of school spirit should not be forgotten. We applaud all the Pep Club women of the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s for their school spirit and pride that paved the way for future generations and new expressions of Warrior spirit.


Winter 2018

On behalf of the Alumni Association Board of Directors, Happy New Year! We hope your 2018 brings you joy and is full of blessings. As your new president, I am ready to serve our alumni association through its mission. We strive to maintain effective communications with and among alumni and friends through our newsletters, emails, website, and social media. In addition, we work with the outstanding Westside High School teachers and principal to support the educational objectives for its students. Through the Hall of Fame event, outstanding alumni are recognized. In coordination with the Westside Foundation, we plan and coordinate gatherings and events such as the Homecoming Tailgate, and raise the financial resources to fulfill this mission through the Westside Open golf outing. We also host the Westside Alumni Basketball Tournament for alumni to compete and have fun while raising funds for scholarships. The support and pride of our alumni and community are incredible. I feel fortunate to reside in District 66. Our children attend Westside Community Schools. Thanks to the overwhelming community support of a $79.9 million dollar bond issue, we see the building improvements every day. Ava is in 8th grade at Westside Middle School. John is in 6th grade at Oakdale Elementary School and is excited to move into the newly built Oakdale. During the Oakdale construction, I enjoyed walking the hallways of my junior high, Valley View (Oakdale moved here while the new school was built). I realized one of the best ways to make yourself happy now is to recall happy times from the past. I remembered where my first ever locker stood. I recalled the rhythmic sounds of our typing class, and reminisced the taste of soft-serve ice cream in the cafeteria. These simple things–just moments to me in the 1980s–are now memories. Amazing reunions have been held and are being planned, including my class of 1988’s 30th reunion. Be sure to stay connected with the Alumni Association through our newsletters and social media. You just might reconnect with someone whom you once knew or meet someone you never knew who is also a Warrior like you. Sincerely, Meagan (Davis) Van Gelder (’88)

Class of 1957 Holds First 60-Year Reunion

Members from the class of 1957 attended the Annual Homecoming Tailgate.

Last Fall, our District celebrated an unprecedented event in the history of Westside, as more than a dozen graduates joined to celebrate 60 years since their high school graduation. Fifteen members of the Class of ‘57 reunited to reminisce, update each other on their lives, and to celebrate their special bond as Westside Warriors, six decades strong. “A lot of water has passed under the bridge for us all,” said Reunion Chair, Dave Humphry. “We have seen the end of the Korean War, then Vietnam (which directly affected us all), the Cold War, the turbulent 60’s, Title IX, and amazing new technology. Plus, we have had the personal life experiences involving family, health, work and leisure, experiencing both difficulties as well as joys along the way.” Together, many of these graduates have witnessed the vast changes that have taken place throughout Westside Community Schools. “I remember when there were farm buildings on the land where the high school now sits,” said Humphry. “The school opened in fall of 1952, and originally consisted of grades 7 through 12; we were 8th graders. The District was rapidly growing and before we graduated, one new addition had been completed, and another one was under construction, as I recall.” Change continues throughout our District today, as construction crews improve and in some cases, rebuild our historic schools, ensuring we have state-of-the-art facilities to take our students through several more decades. Through it all, our community focus on excellence in education has remained a priority, a common thread connecting students past and present, spanning several generations. “Through all these 65 years, Westside gained and has maintained an excellent reputation,” said Humphry. “I’d like to think we were part of building a strong foundation for Westside which has continued to hold up and get stronger through the years.”

Thank You from Jason Hellman, WAA President 2014-2017 I would like to thank the Alumni Board members and officers who helped throughout my tenure as Alumni President. Thanks also to our amazing Alumni Association Administrator Lindsey Natvig, the Westside Community Schools Foundation staff and leadership for their continued support, and the Westside High School administration and faculty for their part in our success. Please join me in welcoming our new officers: President Meagan (Davis) Van Gelder (‘88), Vice President Ricky Anderson (‘05), Treasurer Marc Lowe (‘76) and Secretary Phyllis (Donaldson) Choat (’65). I look forward to watching our Alumni Association thrive under their leadership. For more than 30 years, Westside has held a special place in my heart. In 1986, after interviews and tours at Millard North, Millard South, Burke and Prep, I chose to attend Westside. I sensed there was something very special at Westside, something that I did not ‘feel’ at the other schools. To this day, that something special remains difficult to pinpoint. “Did they know why they knew? Not at all. But they Knew!” - Malcolm Gladwell, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking As our children grow and enjoy their own Westside years, even their own Westside graduations, I still wonder - what makes our school such a special place? When I look at our District today, I don’t always see what I saw in 1986. I normally see something even better. Our “private-feeling public high school” remains remarkable. We enjoy one of the most sought after educations in the “number 1 city to raise a family in America” (Movoto Real Estate 8/12/2014). Even as we navigate challenging times, we continue to be a Lighthouse District,. Please keep playing your role in making our community school special. Thank you for your time. It has truly been my pleasure to serve you. Go Warriors! Jason B. Hellman (’90)

Construction Update This is truly an exciting time for Westside Community Schools. Landmark events at several buildings in our District marked the beginning of 2018. Thanks to the generous support of our stakeholders, District 66 passed an $80 million Major Facilities Plan bond in 2015 and we are now seeing the remarkable results of that support. After more than a year at our Swing School, located at 108th and Grover Streets, excited students and staff moved into the brand new Oakdale Elementary on January 8, to kick off second semester. In late November and December, crews put the finishing touches on the school, including landscaping. Oakdale, the first construction project to be completed, came in on time and on budget!

Once vacated by Oakdale, the Swing School welcomed Swanson Elementary students at the beginning of second semester. In the spring, crews will decommission the historic school to make way for a new state-of-the-art building. The Board of Education has approved the Design Development Plan; architects have gathered Design Committee input, as well as that of our community and teachers, to fine-tune their plans. The new Swanson Elementary is slated to open to students in August 2019. Work on a new Sunset Hills Elementary is also progressing according to schedule. With students remaining in their longtime building next door, crews have been building a brand new facility just to the west and nearly double in size. To date work includes pouring concrete, mechanical and plumbing rough-ins, and laying brick. The planned opening remains set for August 2018. Westside Middle School is completing phase 3 of ongoing renovations. Crews completed work in Area 7B and Area E Lower Level before Thanksgiving. With lockers and furniture in place, staff moved into their new spaces over winter break. The portables were finally empty when students returned to the building in January to start learning. Work on Area E Upper Level and the Cafeteria will be completed by summer break. Roof work also continues.

School Board members join excited students at the Oakdale ribbon cutting.

To all of our alumni who still live in our District and have supported us throughout these projects, thank you. You are making these new and exciting changes possible for our 6,000+ students currently entrusted to us, and countless learners in the future! Blane McCann, Ph. D. Superintendent
