“This year our class reached its 45th reunion date. This is quite a landmark for us,” said Straub (SHS ’68) “By our 50th reunion, we are hoping to reach a goal of $100,000 to give to the Salem Alumni Association. This is quite a bit of money, and it may seem ambitious, but our graduating class is committed to reach this goal. All of us are deeply committed to the alumni association and the great job they do in helping future graduates attain their dreams. Salem High School was good to us; it is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to all the administrators, teachers and coaches who prepared us for life,” he said.

“Hairspray” is based on the 1988 cult hit film “Hairspray” by John Waters.
