IHS Class of '64 celebrates 50th reunion with Link Crew and Avid Program

On Sunday, August 3, several members of the IHS Link Crew and AVID program welcomed the Ithaca High School Class of 1964 to the school. It was the 50 year reunion for the Class of ‘64. Students were tour guides for approximately 150 of the alumni that returned to the halls of Ithaca High School. Guided by enthusiastic Link and AVID students, the Class of 1964 toured the campus to see all the changes. The guests heard the new alma mater, visited the state-of-the-art fitness center, saw the high-tech digital media room and were overly impressed by the improvements to IHS. At the end of the tour, Denise Agati and David Cornell, of the School Food Management Team, put on a delicious brunch.

The Link Leaders and AVID students would like to thank the planning committee for the Class of ’64 and especially Marge McLaren Strosnider for allowing them to share the new Ithaca High School with Ithaca High School’s Class of 1964.
