Alumni Recognition - 2010

  • The Ballston Spa Central School District recognized five distinguished graduates during the annual homecoming activities at Ballston Spa High School. Ballston Spa Mayor John Romano, class of 1963, was recognized for his continued dedication and service to the community of Ballston Spa and  Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Douglas, class of 1984, was  recognized for his leadership and service to his country as a reservist for the United States Marine Corps, and  the late Richard Thomas, class of 1945, was recognized for his coaching and teaching career at BSHS that spanned thirty-eight years and for his prominent presence within the Ballston Spa community that is still felt today. 

    Current BSHS teacher and coach Harold “Harvey” Staulters, class of 1981, was recognized for being a mentor and positive role model for numerous students within the High School, and veteran television journalist, fitness guru and author Marcie Fraser, class of 1979, was recognized for giving back to her alma mater by volunteering in the elementary schools and helping young students gain better awareness about being healthy.

    Nominations were sought from alumni friends and families to recognize those who have demonstrated leadership in their field of study or work, or who have made a difference in the lives of others, and/or who care about and participate in the community where they reside. An alumni committee selected the recipients after screening nominations from the community that were gathered earlier this fall.
