In the spring of 1956, Olentangy High School celebrated the graduation of its third class and now, 60 years later, class members celebrated their class once again at their 60-year class reunion.
On July 9, 22 members of the class of 77 came together at the Berlin Township Hall and enjoyed a catered buffet together.
“Our class was always a close class and some of us we have known and had as friends from grade 1-12,” said Carol Moffett, class of ’56 graduate and part of the reunion planning committee.
They were the third class to enter the new Olentangy High School, entering as sophomores. They came from Berlin High School, Hyatts High School, Powell High School and Orange High School, which consolidated into Olentangy High School in 1953.
In 1956, the school, not even part of a school district yet, had just one principal, 14 faculty members, one secretary, three cooks and seven bus drivers. Since then, the district has grown to 15 elementary schools, five middle schools and, after one more opens in 2018, four high schools.
