Today we “Take 5″ with Jean (Forder) Shervin

AHS Alumni Foundation Board Member

Jean Shervin is an AHS graduate from the Class of 1952. She is a long-standing member of the AHS Alumni Foundation. Here is her interview response:

About Jean:

"I was born and still live in Albion. I graduated from AHS in 1952. I took business courses through school and, while a senior, I worked after school at Agway and continued full time after graduation. I married Charles and we had three children - Janet lives in Albion, Linda in Anchorage, AK, and David in Beaufort, SC. I have three grandsons and two step-grandsons. I became a stay-at-home Mom until my children were in school. Then, I worked part time and then full time in local physician's offices. Upon retirement and becoming a widow, my life is volunteering at church and local organizations and maintaining my home."

About the Foundation:

"I became a member of the Alumni Foundation in the '90s and was secretary for 13 years. I am still a board member and enjoy helping with scholarships and homecoming. While I attended school, more students entered the job field, not college, and scholarships were not as available as now. Throughout the years, more scholarships have been added and activities added to boost the amounts awarded. It is very rewarding to be a part of the Foundation, which helps all students further their education to fulfill their dreams and aspirations of life."
