Old Birds Coming Together

This Saturday, April 27 is the annual “Welcome Back to the Nest” dinner presented by the Highlands High School Alumni Association.  The dinner will be held at the Highlands Country Club and will honor the school district’s best teachers and most respected alumni.  Cocktails will begin at 6:00 P.M. and dinner will be served at 7:00P.M.  Tickets are on sale now for $30.00 or you can purchase tickets at the door for $35.00.  Everyone attending the event will receive a special alumni gift. 

To reserve your tickets you may drop off your check made payable to “HHSAA” to
 Linda Stapleton Slone at the Bank of Kentucky (25 N. Fort Thomas Ave). You can also visit their website,, or email the HHSAA at for tickets.
If you cannot attend the dinner but would still like to support the Alumni Association and “We the People”, a student group that demonstrates the academic excellence of HHS, sponsorship opportunities are also available.

The President of the HHSAA, Matt Dowling, explained the nomination process for the honorees.  "The Alumnus of the year and Teacher of the year are selected by the Alumni Association board. The board takes nominations from alumni members and other supporters and then makes a selection each year. This years alumnus of the year was actually nominated by multiple people throughout the year. I think that tells you exactly how well respected Bill Thomas is to the Ft. Thomas community. The Teacher of the year awards are nominated by a committee led by the Principle of each school. The Alumni Association then approves the nomination prior to the event. Brian Robinson has been a huge help throughout this process."
Here is a list of the honorees that will be acknowledged at the event:

Alumnus of the Year: Bill Thomas

HHS Teacher of the Year: Ann Meyer

Outstanding Middle School Teacher of the Year: Susan Christy

Outstanding Elementary Teacher of the Year: Dawn Hils

Speaker: Dale Mueller
