Couriering this area this week in 2001 — 20 years ago:

Amy Strohschein and Aaron Caudil were crowned Homecoming Queen and King at the West Forsyth football game last Friday. Strohschein is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gary Strohschein and Caudill is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Caudill. The king and queen were selected by the senior class from among the seniors on the court. In addition, Royal Court members were selected from each class. They are Jovan McMurray and Luke Jackson from the senior class; Sara Yeager and Ralph Pearson from the junior class; Megan Pugh and Ryan Atwood from the sophomore class; and Courtney Etchison and Roman Ervin from the freshman class.

Members of the Class of 1945 of Clemmons High School recently held their 56th anniversary reunion at the Salem Glen Country Club. The group observed a moment of silence in memory of classmates Jim Cooper and Jim Ogburn, who died in the past year. Arrangements for the reunion were handled by Ruth Lewis Speas, Betty Crater Wise, Frances Ogburn and Ruth Phelps Bingham. Herbert Harper, class president, conducted the meeting.

The following local students were among those completing degrees from the University of Greensboro at the end of the summer session 2001. From Clemmons: Brian A. Anderson, bachelor of arts; and Jennifer Irene Ring, bachelor of science. From Lewisville: Daniel Enrique Vidal, bachelor of science.

Even the babies are patriotic at New Horizons Childcare in Clemmons. Kristen and Craig Hill donated 120 flag T-shirts to all the children at New Horizons recently. The Hills, owners of Adventure in Advertising, have two children enrolled at New Horizons, Steven, 4, and McKenzie, 2. The shirts were used to help children understand the meaning of unity and support.

You don’t have to be a grownup to be a part of the relief effort underway following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Jenny Vanderford’s fourth grade students at Clemmons Elementary decided to collect money to assist in the relief effort, and two students, Logan Nuckles and her friend Claire Coleman, took the matter to heart. “I wanted to find a way to help and raise money,” Logan said. “I asked my mother if I could have a lemonade stand and she said that would be OK.” Logan called her best friend and classmate to help. The girls made about $45 and with some matching funds from parents, they turned in $100 toward the project.

The Lewisville Oldies softball team won the silver medal in the State Senior Games in Raleigh. Players on the team are Glenn Motsinger, Leon Golding, Mackie Cockerham, Brack Bailey, Boy Key, Bill Slater, Craven Page, Jerry Canady, Bob Crumbly, Don Miller, Fred Gragg, Ken Hauser, Les Grimes, Bud Fulton, Ken Smith, E.B.
