It came and went in a blur of frenzied activity, but Homecoming Week left behind memories that will not soon fade. Weber High has recently experienced a week that may be more memorable than most due to the ¿UVW+RPHFRPLQJZLQLQVHYHQ\HDUVDQGWKHLQLWLDWLRQRIWKH¿UVW¿YH members into the Weber High Hall of Fame. These individuals include Blair Buswell, Rulon Jones, Jerry Moyes, Olene Smith Walker and Rich- ard “Dick” Connolly. “It [the Weber High Hall of Fame] is a way to recognize alumni who KDYHPDGHVRPHVLJQL¿FDQWFRQWULEXWLRQWRWKHLUFRPPXQLW\DIWHUJUDGXD- tion.

Buswell says his favorite memories of Weber High include “all my friends and teachers. I had a great time with all my buddies and certain teachers I really liked.” He also offers advice to the Warriors now attending Weber High, “Get as involved as you can.

Don’t just stick to one group of friends; extend yourself outside that and do as many activities as possible.” Rulon Jones graduated with the class of 1976 as a multisport athlete. +HWKHQDWWHQGHG8WDK6WDWHZKHUHKHFRQWLQXHGWRH[FHOLQ)RRWEDOOHDUQ- Ty Decker, junior, samples some of the whipped cream that LQJ3DFL¿F&RDVW$WKOHWH$VVRFLDWLRQRIWKH\HDU+HLVDIRUPHU1)/ was smeared across his face. player and All-Star.
