Alumni Weekend July 15, 16, 17, 2022

It is my honor to nominate the Sidney Central School Alumni Association for
2022 Sidney Organization of the Year

The SCSAA acts as the heart and soul of our little community. For many years, and through the hard work and passionate commitment of a small army of volunteers, the association has acted as an outreach umbrella group to the thousands who have graduated from Sidney High School over the many years.
The All Alumni Weekend each summer brings hundreds of former students and faculty back to their roots for a three-day commemoration of memories, fellowship, honors, and laughter. This weekend involves several of Sidney's not for profit organizations who view this as an opportunity to be involved and raise some much needed "summer money" through the alumni throngs that gather. Tours of the school have been given, individual class reunions are held, and informal parties pop up at many area restaurants over the course of the three-day weekend. The Wall of Fame event welcomes 300+ to a reception and ceremony honoring esteemed graduates. Nightly dances attract hundreds for socializing and reminiscing. The weekend is a massive commitment by the Sidney Alumni Association, is pulled off with excellence and professionalism, and is a role model of its kind in the state.
Outside of Alumni Weekend, the association also conducts a large career day event with students at the Sidney High School and the group is heavily involved with school sports activities. SCSAA also makes monetary donations to various groups and causes in the name of all graduates. I believe that there is no group, of any size, in our community (or any community) that does more to keep everybody connected through the years than our Alumni Association. The ripple effect of what it does can be felt literally around the world as alumni gather, visit, communicate, and remember the times of growth, formation and nurturing that took place right here in our beloved hometown.
For this, I believe that the Sidney Alumni Association, the "beating heart" of our small community, should be honored for all they have done and continue to do for all of us.
