group of Alumni to all look at the camera and smile
at the same time. But Lo-and-behold, after a few tries we were able
to take the group picture. "It sure was worth it!"

Members of the 50th Reunion Committee pictured above from left to right:
Jackie Winkler, Doug Holdeman, Lynda Hickerson Hoffman, Jim Rowlands and Laurie Miller Sylvester. Unable to attend, Sally Montgomery Saunders, Virginia Lake Burroughs and Linda Downing Boone
Even though the 50th Reunion is history, Doug Holdeman, our illustrious treasurer, still handles financial details for our Class of 1964.

I want to personally thank the alumni who have shown their Cougar Pride by graciously donating money to make the 50th Reunion a very special and memorable event.

Jim Rowlands our CW web site manager would like to offer a special thanks to our classmate and friend, John Cromer, who took it upon himself to organize a collection at our 50th Reunion in order to help keep the Colonel White Class of 1964 web site funded for quite a while to come. I would also like to thank all of my fellow classmates, for your generous donations to our Cougar web site. Some Alumni asked if further contributions can be made to our web site. If you would like to send a donation please send it to:

Doug Holdeman, Class Treasurer, 7815 N. Main St. #29, Dayton, Ohio 45415

Check should be made out to: "CWHS Class of 1964"

Thank you,
Jim Rowlands

Welcome! Thanks for stopping in to take a look at YOUR Colonel White Class of ’64 web site.

There’s a spot for stories and pictures of days gone by in every section of the site. It’s full of surprises with new features continually being added and updates posted monthly.

While we are now officially “launched,” we hope this web site will always be “under construction” and what you find here will be interesting and informative. Check out the site for articles/stories, photos, videos, current news and announcements on future and past class events.

Our official Web Site is one of our main tools for communication. It contains the 41st Reunion photos and information about that weekend in August of 2005 that we were lucky enough to enjoy. Our yearly “October Night Out” fills the room at Marion’s Pizza with more and more attendees. Photos of our “Cougar Family” are fun to look back on year after year. Reviving memories of half-time shows, parades, band camps, and the Colonel's bus, are Jackie Winkler's current stories and photos on the "Little Colonels" page.

After a bit a research and some planning, current news about our Classmates and Alumni Biographies can be found in the “Remember/Alumni” section. Our Alumni have had a strong military presence and this section has become a place to honor them in our “Military Hall of Fame".

One of our main priorities has been to locate as many of our Alumni as possible.

A “Lost & Found” classmate’s page is posted and we would appreciate your assistance in trying to locate those for whom we have no contact information.


















We cheered classmate, Dick Scott, as he rallied those who attended that final walk-through of our school, January 12, 2008. Readers can find photos and a video of Dick’s speech on the “News” page, along with regular columns by Jim Rowlands – “Historical Chronicles,” and Magda Houtz – “The Human Side.” Jim’s story, “The Night of a Thousand Laughs” will be enjoyed by those gridiron fans and can be found on the "News" page!

We would like to encourage you to help us in our “Construction Goal” on our
“School Daze” page. As of now, we have only a few grade school photos. We would love to have pics from ALL of the CWHS feeder schools. Teachers were a major influence for all of us and a number of their lovely stories are also found in this section.

Remember, we would like submission from you, our classmates! If you have a story or an article about yourself (including pictures) that you would like to share with us, please send it to one of us: If you have a submission; but would like one of us to help you put it together, let us know – we want that opportunity to get to know each other better. All photos & submissions will be returned upon request if sent via USPS.

USPS (snail mail) submission:

Jim Rowlands
270 Kimbary Drive
Centerville, OH 45458
