THANK YOU to all our donors who supported bringing back our living Quaker Sam mascot. A listing of those who donated to the Quaker Sam campaign will appear in the Winter/Spring SHSAA newsletter that will be mailed out to alumni and friends by the end of April.
A LIVING QUAKER SAM MASCOT has been missing from school events for nearly a decade. In the last few years, many Salem alumni have been heard to say... “Where is Sam and why isn’t he appearing at Quaker sporting events?”
SALEM HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION unanimously agreed to bring Quaker Sam back by purchasing a new costume that would be worn by a Salem High School student at games and occasional community events.
ALUMNI DONATED FUNDS during our ”Giving Tuesday” campaign in November and our Valentine's Day campaign in February raising sufficient funds for the mascot costume.
