Thomas (Tom) Douglas was born in DeLand, Florida on April 12, 1928 to Ray Addison and Emma (Swanson) Douglas. He grew up in Omaha and started working at age nine. He delivered ice blocks, graded eggs, constructed the State Historical Society Building and riveted B-29 bomber wings during WW II.

They married in 1950 and Tom became a history, psychology and social studies teacher first at Irving Junior High, then at Southeast High School when it opened in 1955. He remained as a much-loved member of the faculty until his retirement in 1993. Tom loved gardening, bird watching, walking and food. He delivered Meals on Wheels with a home-gown tomato for every person.

Walt Radcliffe Named Distinguished Southeast High School Alumnus

On March 28 and 29, 2018 Walter (Walt) Radcliffe, LSE Class of 1965, will be recognized as a Southeast High School Distinguished Alumnus. Walt is one of eight LSE graduates to be so honored this year. The eight alumni will be celebrated at an evening event in Lincoln on March 28, at which Walt will be asked to share a memorable moment from his LSE high school career. Activities at LSE on March 29 include a breakfast reception, student body assembly, classroom visitations, professional photography sittings for the Distinguished Alumni Wall of Honor and a closing luncheon.

Walt Radcliffe has served the Nebraska Legislature with distinction in many capacities as a legislative page, legislative staffer and as the principal of one of the most successful lobbying practices in Nebraska.

The LSE Class of 1965 applauds Walt for his receipt of this well-deserved honor.

Congratulations, Walt. We are so proud!

 

Doug Peter Previously Named Distinguished Southeast High School Alumnus

At an unknown date in the past, Douglas (Doug) Peter, LSE Class of 1965, was also recognized as a Southeast High School Distinguished Alumnus. Dr. Peter had a long and distinguished career with the Navajo Area of the Indian Health Service, an agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The LSE Class of 1965 applauds Doug for his receipt of this well-deserved honor.

Congratulations, Doug. We are so proud!

Welcome to the Lincoln Southeast High Class of 1965 Webpage.

Notes from your committee:

1.  We have posted a survey about our recent 50th year reunion and thoughts about our next reunion.  Please click on the "Next Reunion?" link on the left menu and give us your thoughts.  We just had a very successful 50th year reunion in Lincoln.  What did you think about it and what do you think about future reunions?  We need your ideas whether or not you were able to attend this year!

2.  Thanks to the generosity of many donors (most especially Sally Swihart who donated back what she won from winning BOTH raffles at the reunion) we have secured this website into the future.  We have also added a new function called:  LIVE CHAT.  It will allow you to chat with any other classmates who are on line at the same time.  (Given that we are still a small group, you may have to schedule times to "Live Chat" with people you want to chat with.

 Please remember a few things:

A.  The Live Chat is a public place.  Others can join while a chat is going on, and a chat stays visible until ALL participants sign out of the site.  Please do not chat anything that you do not want all of your classmates to see.  All participants should sign out when a chat is done to clear the slate for the next chat.  

B.  At the current time, you need to have Flash installed to use "Live Chat".  That means it is not available from an iPhone or iPad.  

C.  Live chat includes the capability to connect to your computer's camera and have live audio-visual chats.  However, there are some caveats:

a.  Each participant can only see one other audio-video feed at a time.  That means two people could each see and talk to each other, and one person could talk and be seen by several others, but three or more cannot all chat with the others at the same time.  

b.  We have found the audiio-visual chat a little buggy, so bear with it.  It may be great and it may be more trouble than it is worth. Written and video instructions are available on the site.

c.  The text chat seems to work fine. If video is too buggy, just chat with text.  

d.  You can see who all is signed in to "Live Chat" and with an icon next to their name see if they are typing a response, or sharing a webcam.  

e.  Try it, and let others know if it works.  Let LSE65@icloud.com know if it works great or gives you troubles. We don't have to keep this feature but it is definitely worth a good try. 

5.  The group picture is posted with a potential key at the "50 Year Picture" link. However the key has NOT been finished.  We need to crowd-source this task.  If anyone wants to show what they know and help create the key (or a partial key) please identify the faces on the numbered picture and send names and their corresponding number to lse65@icloud.com.  I (GFW) will give a fabulous prize (worth less than $10 and yet to be identified) to the person who can submit the most correct names before September 1, 2015.  

6.  We have lots of room on the site for more pictures.  Please go to "Photos from the 50th" and post your favorite pictures from the reunion!  

In Memory

The "In Memory" page (on the left menu) lists of all of the LSE65 classmates known to the 50 year Reunion Committee to be deceased.  This page is a poignant reminder that time is short and precious.   Please let us know if you have information about other classmates who have died, or about the year of death when it is missing.  It would also be good to know those who have served in the military, and those we know have been killed in action.  Please e-mail any edits or additions to us at lse65@icloud.com .  

Help Find Missing Classmates

"Missing classmates" does not mean we do not have contact information,  It means they are missing from the website and have not yet joined.  Please try to help get everyone registered.  The website will mean much more to everyone if more are participating.    We now have 189 classmates on the site.     

Help The Site Improve

We would still love to add an assistant website administrator or two to help build the site, add interesting content, and encourage discussion etc.  It is easy and there are some helpers available in Lincoln who have used this website provider for other classes.  Please indicate your interest by contacting us at lse65@icloud.com.  IT'S EASY.  YOU'LL LIKE IT!

Reflections from the Reunion

There are many reflections posted on the site that can be seen at the "What's New" page.  Bob Danley had an especially thoughtful take on our reunion so it is copied here:  

Reflections........... What a weekend!! As it was ending last night I was plopped into a chair thinking about what had just happened over the last 2 days. What an incredible group of people.. Classmates!! From every walk of life, I just marveled at what this group of people has accomplished: how many went into the service, how many went to war, the educators, instructor's of every type, college professor's, department chairs, business owners, large & small, men & women. Doctor's, Dentists, Attorney's, Accountants, Artist's, Airline Pilot's, Fighter Pilot's, Captain's of ships, Captain's of Industry.. McCormick, I think there are even 2 Realtor's? Really!! Oh & so much more... When they gave us those diploma's & sent our class out into the world, we grabbed it and ran.. We truly did not ask "what our Country could do for us" we went out and did what we could do for Country, our Family's & Ourselves.. 93% of our class went on to higher education, are you kidding me?? We as a whole are a grand accomplishment, we should be proud of ourselves. We came, we learned, we traveled the globe, we helped our fellow travelers, we have helped those in need, we have indeed made this a better place, and we have led, we are something... Thank You to all who were able to come enjoy, I hope many more continue to sign up on our website. For those unable to attend I hope you join the conversation, just as I have seen Doug & Shirley just join (we missed You both, for way too many years), and I hope to see hundreds of pictures posted to the site very soon.. Maybe we will not wait so long to do this again. I think it is time to BRING THE BAND BACK... Thanks again to everyone, it was a sensational weekend!!! Bob
