The demonstrations of Withrow spirit by large cross-sections of alumni assembled at the different events during the Centennial Weekend Celebration was inspirational and overwhelming. It was truly historic and worthy of a Centennial celebration.  Here are some of the highlights:

On Wednesday evening, the weekend celebration was kick-started with an Orange Out on Fountain Square, including a video board presentation and the reading of proclamations honoring Withrow’s 100 years of educating youth.

Orange Out on Fountain Square was well attended by enthusiastic alums and friends of Withrow High School.

Friday was the First Annual Major McNeil Scholarship Fund Golf Outing, which was a perfect day and raised money for the scholarship fund.

The Golf Outing not only was a great way to earn funds for the Major McNeil Scholarship Fund but a chance for high school acquaintances to be rekindled.
 Mid-day on Saturday was Withrow vs. Woodward in a Centennial Crosstown Basketball Showdown, which filled the gym with supporters for both teams.

Saturday evening the  Withrow Centennial Gala and After Party brought over 800 alumni together from 53 different classes, including the Gala Queen from the class of 1944. The evening included jazz and spiritual music performances by alums, presentations and awards.

Proud Withrow alums enjoyed the Centennial Gala.

Kathy Wade provided special entertainment.

Queen and King were crowned at the gala.
Sunday morning found alums at a Centennial Brunch Around the Tower, which included comprehensive school tours. A great wrap-up of a historic weekend of celebrations.

Touring their alma mater was a treat for alums during the weekend.

Checking out the yearbook - you can hear squeals of “Is THAT what I looked like?!?!?
