Aberdeen Public Schools Loses a Leader
              Aberdeen Public Schools lost a teacher, coach, administrator, and friend. Don
        Reshetar passed away on October 14, 2010.
              Don and his wife, Rosemary, moved their young family to Aberdeen in 1960.
        Here he worked as a teacher, coach, and administrator for over 30 years. Don was
        head football coach from 1960-1972, winning ESD Conference Titles in 1964 and
        1967. He was Athletic Director for 22 years, receiving the 1982 Athletic Director
        of the Year, and also directed the Aberdeen Relays for 22 years. In 2006, the field
        house at Clark Swisher Athletic Complex was named in his honor along with coach
        Jim Krechman. Don served as director of the SD High School All Star games along-
        side his mentor Clark Swisher for over ten years. In 2008 he was inducted into the
        CHS Hall of Fame. He was on the Aberdeen Public Schools Foundation Board from
        2003-2010 and served as president from 2009 until 2010.
              Don will be remembered for all he did for the Aberdeen Central School and
        the Aberdeen community. We are currently developing an endowment scholarship
        in Don’s memory. If you are interested in contributing, please contact the office at

                                                      Reunion Recap
     Eleven reunions were held over the past summer in Aberdeen and throughout the United States. Many of the groups
took tours of both old and new CHS. “The Alumni Room and tour of old Central in its returning glory made memories
return,” mentioned Betty Artz, class of 1950. For more information on the changes in the Alumni Resource Room look on
page four of the newsletter.

“Alumni admiring restored CHS trophies in the new trophy cases.”       CHS Alumni enjoy sharing memories in the Alumni Resource Room.

    The Class of 1980 decided to do something in addition to their reunion to give back to the Aberdeen community. They
hosted a car wash to benefit the Aberdeen Thunder Special Olympics team. Class member Kelli Donovan explains, “We
wanted to do something to give back. Growing up in Aberdeen made each of us the person we are today.”

     Fans going to CHS athletic events are
in for a treat this year. After the first home
game, students, family members, and fans
are encouraged to stay for a special Meet
the Eagles autograph session. Athletes
and coaches line up courtside, sign team
posters, and meet CHS fans. “Meet the
Eagles is a great way for fans to connect
with Golden Eagles players. It creates ex-
citement for the season. The athletes look
forward to these events just as much as the
fans do,” commented Gene Brownell, CHS
Athletic Director.
