Schreiner Spells Homecoming R-e-c-a-l-l

Recall weekend, April 11-13, is a time for former students from Schreiner Institute, College and University to gather on campus, meet old and new friends and marvel at the changes and new buildings. The theme for Recall 2008 is Schreiner Spirit Through the Ages, and everyone who has attended the school from its military school days through the present is encouraged to attend, especially the “decade” graduation years.  

Recall 2008-1 Recall 2008 - 2 Recall 2008 - 3 Recall 2008 4“This year we are making an extra special effort to include the Kerrville area community in our homecoming festivities,” Paul Camfield, associate director of alumni relations, said. “We have revived the homecoming parade tradition and we hope that anyone with small children will come to campus Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. to watch our students, staff and alumni march around the Schreiner campus loop. If anyone has a pet they would like to dress up in Schreiner attire and participate in the parade, we welcome that. It’s all to celebrate the tradition and legacy of Schreiner spirit.”

There are a number of other events during the weekend. It has become a Recall tradition that one of the weekend’s highlights will be the Annual Randy Shepler ’54 Golf Tournament at Riverhill Country Club. The tournament is scramble format and the shotgun start will be 1 p.m., Friday April 11. Greens fees will be $85 and there are sponsorships available for $100 and $250.

Among other Recall events will be a Friday night dance, the annual Military Tribute Breakfast, a reception and exhibit for local artist Rusty Pendleton '67, Recall Picnic, Casino Night and the Tribute to Schreiner Legends Banquet, all on Saturday. At the banquet, Judge Robert Rhea Barton ’56 and Spencer Blocker ’51 will be honored as Distinguished Alumni. Dr. Robert Henry, coach at Schreiner College from 1982 to 1994, and Charles H. Johnston Jr. ’32 will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Honor.
