Do you have a Plains High School Yearbook you would donate to Southwestern Heights
If anyone has any unwanted yearbooks of
any year (especially 1965 and before), please contact me! We would love to have a full set of Southwestern Heights High School,
Kismet High School and Plains High School in the Southwestern Heights JR.-SR. High library! We currently have a completed
set for Southwestern Heights High school 1966-current.

13 Nov 2016 - The lists have been modified, several people have been added and some have been moved
within the lists. This process will be ongoing as we learn more about our Veterans. Thank you to all of them for
their service to our country.
This list originated with the packet of information
handed out at the PHS Reunion in August 2016. Thank you to whomever created it.
If you know of veterans who should be added to these lists, please send their name and when they served, to KECoats@msn.com
They should be or should have lived in Plains, taught in Plains or be the spouse
of someone from Plains. Thank you.
19 Jul 2015 - COMMUNITY ENHANCEMENT FOUNDATION
The Community Enhancement Foundation of Plains(CEFOP) is taking pre-orders for decks of playing cards. The Back side
of the deck will be a beautiful picture of "The Widest Main Street" at night. The face sides will have pictures
of the businesses and landmarks in Plains/Kismet. The decks will make great gifts/keepsakes for family and friends. They would
make a great stocking stuffer. Pre-orders would help greatly, giving us an idea of the number of decks we need to order. Cost
is $10.00 per deck and all profit will go to the Grocery Store Project.
Jeanne Fisher-Roberts on Facebook, at 620-482-3526 or JMRROBERTS@hotmail.com with the number of decks you would like to reserve. No need to pay until we deliver them to you. Thank You!!!
26 Jul 2014 - Video
of the launch for Richard Schell's son
The video and dedication to Lowell Schell of the rocket launch in Florida is on:
search: ula atlas v nrol-33
There is more than one video of the launch but the one you want to watch is 30:20 minutes long
and the dedication is a little over 10 minutes into the video. You can move the cursor along the bottom to
speed up if you want but the video tells about the rocket and shows the launch toward the end.
19 May 2014 - Richard
Schell Class of 1959
visited with Richard Schell today. He and Paulette and family are the NASA Space Center in Florida. Their son,
Lowell, was killed in a motorcycle accident two years ago this summer. Lowell was career Air Force and worked
at NASA on classified jobs. The Schell's were informed that Lowell and two other men were instrumental in the
design of an Alliance Atlas 5 rocket which is scheduled to be launched on May 22 at 6:00 am Eastern Time. Lowell
Schell will have his name on this rocket as a memorial. The internet site for information and (I think viewing of
the launch) is: www.spaceflightnow.com This is quite an honor and I thought our classmates
might like to know this information.
Thanks, Don Malone
