Hello folks from your new president of the Alumni Association, Tom Trombley. If my name is familiar it could be because I was on the Riverside School Board from 2000-2008. Or, more likely, because of my three children Andy, Val and Tim, who graduated from Riverside in ’04, ’05 and ’08.
During my time on the Board we adjusted the name of the district to the Riverside Local Schools, rebuilt the Stadium, helped with the construction and furnishing of the Fieldhouse and sold the County Home to the Lake County Historical Society. It was a pleasure to serve then, and I’m looking forward to serving now.
I would first like to thank Bill Guyer for his years as president and his continuing support of the association. I can only hope to be as effective as Bill.
As I learned more about the Association I was very impressed with all the activities that the group supports. Of course, I always knew about the Duck Race run in cooperation with the Harvey Alums. It is the main fundraiser for the group and helps fund the scholarships provided by the association.
But we also act as the coordination point for RHS reunions. Right now there are four in process with information available elsewhere on this web site. We operate the Hall of Fame and its banquet and the Annual Alumni picnic. We also provide yearly support to various Riverside functions such as Prom and Homecoming.
Together with the other relatively new officers, James Hido our VP and Justin Eckert our treasurer I’m certain that we will continue to grow and add to the services we provide to the association, the school district and the community at large.
Feel free to contact me at 440-754-9654 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comment, questions or suggestions.
