Alumni visitors at our 75th Anniversary Dinner enjoyed the school's new historical display. There's been a lot to celebrate over these 75 years!
Wheaton Christian Grammar School graduates reflect more than seven decades of history and circle the globe in their influence. Since the school's humble beginning with 15 students on September 8, 1942, we have seen annual enrollment grow to more than 500, and alumni now totaling in the thousands.
At the September 2017 celebration of the school's 75th anniversary, we were thrilled to greet former students who represented each decade of the school's history. The video linked here includes Dr. Philip Ryken '80, Annette (Medendorp) Adams '49, Jeri (Medendorp) Wickersham '52, Marge (Medendorp) Pack-Gray '57, Ashley (Kramer) Heacock '00, Mary and David Gieser '63, Jennifer Marshall '86, Gene Frost '67, Amy (Frost) Huttenlock '03, Phil Shields '89, David Kohlmeyer '83, and Marybeth (Knudsen) Sauter '74. Also included in the video are Marilyn Himmel (teacher from 1955-1996), David Roth (teacher from 1967-1973 and principal from 1973-1987), and David Beamer, parent of Melissa '81, Todd '83, and Michelle '89.
Members of the class of 1967 (pictured below), celebrating their own 50th reunion, led the crowd in singing happy birthday to WCGS!
Wheaton Christian Grammar School graduates impact their world for Jesus Christ in the classroom and in the courtroom, in the ministry and in the military, in the arts and in the sciences, as caring parents and caring members of society. Each year during our spring Missions Emphasis Weeks, we add more graduates to our around-the-world map of those who serve in ministry-specific vocations. But we cannot underestimate the influence of former students in all facets of society, prepared with a foundation of God's Word in their hearts and influenced by the early mentoring they received from loving, godly faculty.
Are you a former student? We'd love to stay in touch!
