MENTONE – The Mentone High School Alumni Board of Directors is finalizing their MHS History Book containing graduating class photos and class histories as well as a history of Mentone schools.  

The book was commissioned in July by Alumni Board President LeRoy Markley to compile and publish a history of Mentone High School before more alumni and class memories are gone forever. Memories and some of the photos in the book were submitted by MHS alumni. The board says every effort was made to select photos and memories that reflected the MHS experience.

Letters and emails are being sent to all MHS alumni with information about ordering a book.

Cost is $20 (add $7 if the book is to be mailed). Those interested in having a book are to return the order form no later than Jan. 31 so the board knows how many books to have printed.

Orders are open to anyone who is interested in a copy of the book. The order form can be downloaded at the Mentone High School Class of 1962 Facebook page.

Mail the form with your name, address and number of books wanted along with $20 per book (or $27 per book to have it mailed) to MHS History Book, c/o Faith Goshert, 5845 S. SR 19, Mentone, IN 46539.

The books will be available to those who ordered them at the MHS Alumni Banquet on May 19.

With Markley’s death Nov. 3, alumni board officers are Alice Keirn, president; Phil Nelson, vice president; Susy Creighton, secretary; and Tana Beeson, treasurer.

Committee members for the preparation of the book include Mary Boggs, Linda Cochran, Faith Goshert, Donna Pineda, Cindy Spitler, Alice Keirn and Susy Creighton.
