Class of ‘63
One year, Kathy Haunreiter Johnson, Class of ‘63 alumni, was presenting a scholarship in the name of her parents at the W. F. West Scholarship and Awards night. Kathy and the class of ‘63 members began talking about the individual classes awarding scholarships to Chehalis grads. It was a reunion year. Kathy invited Class of ‘65 alum Bob Spahr to join their reunion to share about how the scholarship fundraising and giving worked. The classmates were excited, and passed the hat to raise $4,000.00 that first year. The Class of ‘63 truly appreciates our hometown, and the education received in the Chehalis School District. They are proud to assist other W. F. West graduates as they get their start with the challenge of establishing a new career and a good life.
