Roses to the Salem?High School Alumni Association. It ranks with the very best such organizations in the country. And that's not being strictly subjective. You can check and compare. It is self-sustaining and subsists on the hard work of volunteers and those giving a love back to their school. Not to mention donations which provide thousands of dollars in scholarships each year. On Saturday, 49 scholarships were awarded during the annual banquet. Money distributed is nearly $200,000. All going to top 2010 SHS grads who will likely go on and make an impact in their respective fields and, in turn as is often the case, give back to their school someday.
