       Recently a meeting was held to formulate plans for the fifth gathering of the Shenandoah High School Super Cooper Alumni Reunion.  The first order of business was the selection of officers who will be responsible for coordinating the event. Selected as officers were the  following….. Albert Chiglinsky, President, Kathy Gadinski Vice President, Jan Monaghan Secretary, Sandra Fatula Vagelatos, & Karen  Locke Co-Treasurers, & Joe Chowanes Sergeant at Arms. Super Cooper V will be tentatively scheduled for August 2016. The next meeting  of the core officers will take place In January of 2015 where officers will gather to report on various aspects of the event which would  include location, notification and registration of those alumni planning on attending. Unlike prior years this event will be expanded to  include those classes who graduated from Shenandoah Valley HS but who attended school in the Cooper Building for at least one year.  This will include all classes up to 1985.
