New WGHS step/repeat banner donated by the class of 1973

We are pleased to announce that your class of 1973 has donated and now delivered a brand new step/repeat banner to the Webster Groves Alumni Relation Dept.

 

Chaired by Martha Reitz Kratzer and Anne Davis Grothe the banner was officially presented to Pat Voss on behalf of Alunmi Relations.

The need for the banner and the majority donation was the idea of classmate Holly Williams Thomas. Without her generosity this gift may not have been possible.

 

The banner is now available for a variety of School District related events such as Reunions, sporting events, welcome days,recruiting and other activities.

We are proud of this type of gift that will be of use for many years to come. Please note the class of 1973 is acknowleged at the bottom of the banner.
