CHS has 1200 students this year….the main building
is full and there are now 14 portable buildings on campus….so The Ex
Student Association and Alumni are trying to help and organize to assist
in major needs the school is facing the next few years. Much of the
facility is aging and needs some updates. We hope to have some feed back
from the school district in early 2013 on addressing these needs
including addition to the building and removing the portables. I realize
we have been lax in information flowing to our web site, I apologize for
that, but the work has been going on and will continue to see our High
School is ready for the future.
Members of our Association, Cathy Seifert, Libby
Willis and I’m sure others in community have helped to preserve trees
near the Middle School when a parking lot was added so the general
landscape was not too disrupted. This past summer a portable building
was placed in a poor location near our gazebo, I know Cathy Seifert was
on the phone right away and it was soon moved to a better location. We
have added Rick Herring as Association Historian. Rick is a past
President of the Association and has been a great asset to CHS for many
years. For those who use Facebook, our Facebook page is Carter Riverside
HS Ex Student Association. There have been several others come up but we
only have the one we try and post information.
Gregg points out that there are several Facebook
sites referring to Carter Riverside Alumni; however, the
Carter Riverside HS Ex Student Association
is the only site that is sponsored by the Alumni Association.
Ed. note......Gregg is the current Vice President of the Alumni Association.
