Look for MLB umpire Jerry Meals’79 at the Yankees vs. Indians games this weekend. Tonight he will be the first base umpire. Sunday, he will be behind home plate. Meals now has 21 years in as an umpire with the last 5 years being crew chief. Jerry’s thorough knowledge of the rulebook was evident in a May game in Cincinnati. He was called upon to rule on a snafu when the New York Mets batted out of order, affecting not only the runner at second base but also the batter in a complicated cause and effect scenario. Reds manager Jim Riggleman, shown in the photo below with Meals and the other umpires, was quoted as saying, “I don’t think anybody in the stadium knew that rule except for the umpires.”


The Salem High School Class of 1958 will be celebrating its 60-year class reunion on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at the Salem Golf Club. The festivities kickoff on Friday, October 12, 2018 at the Italian Club and conclude on Sunday October 14, 2018 with a brunch at the Salem Golf Club. Reservations are due by Oct. 1. Letters with complete information will be mailed to all classmates. Please contact Penny Lippiatt at pennylipp78@gmail.com for more information.


Happy Independence Day! Wishing you a fun-filled and safe holiday!

What does it cost to educate our children?
The escalating costs of college attendance adds urgency to our mission to help provide more scholarships to new Salem High School graduates and alumni. The alumni association is proud to have been able to give approximately $350,000 in scholarships annually in recent years. However, even while trying to help as many students as possible, the association's current funding allows for only about one-third of each graduating class to receive a Salem High School Alumni Association Scholarship. Though the majority of these are substantial scholarships of several thousand dollars each, SHSAA scholarships cover only a portion of college costs.

The Mission of the Salem High School Alumni Association is to recognize and award scholarships to deserving Salem graduates who are expected to continue their education in a manner that will bring credit to Salem High School. The organization strives to keep alive memories of high school days and friendships through the association newsletter, yearbooks, and archived records and memorabilia of Salem High School in the association office.

Our History: The Salem High School Alumni Association was one of the first high school alumni groups in Ohio and is one of the most generous in the country. Thirty-three Salem High School alumni met with several of their former teachers on June 14, 1882, and the following year began the tradition of holding an annual reunion banquet. Several years later, association members decided that they wanted to do more than keep alive memories of high school days--they also wanted to help outstanding graduates attend college. On June 20, 1903, the association established the first high school alumni scholarship fund in Ohio. Salem High School graduates and friends were contacted to raise funds, and within four years the group had enough money to buy a $1,000 bond. The $60 interest generated by the bond was awarded as the first alumni scholarship to Walter French when he graduated in 1908. Now in its second century of granting scholarships, the association awarded fifty-two 2015 graduates, forty-seven alumni, and one current student,  a record-setting total of $359,050 in scholarships on May 23, 2015 at the 134th Reunion Banquet held at Salem High School.
