Friend of Education Recipient
Jim Hamilton with nominator
Miamisburg City Schools' students and staff returned to school this week. The teaching staff was welcomed back on Monday, August 18th at a kick-off meeting held at Miamisburg Middle School.
Twenty-five year recognition pins were awarded to Lisa Carnegis, Calvin Helsinger, Beverly Idzakovich and Susan Yerkins. Staff who reached "Master Teacher" recognition were Joe Beringer, Pete O'Neal and Jonathan Wade.
In addition, Jim Hamilton was named this year's Friend of Education. Mr. Hamilton was nominated by MHS teacher Nancy Hamilton. Nancy Hamilton explained why Mr. Hamilton was nominated. "I am writing to nominate Jim Hamilton for the Friend of Education Award. Nominating Jim for this award is probably long overdue because he has been a friend to the Miamisburg School District for many years, helping whenever he can and never looking for anything in return.
The list of Jim’s contributions to the school district include being a volunteer coach for the high school Mock Trial Team for 3 years during which he coached students to numerous individual and team awards. He has served as a guest speaker in the economics and government classrooms on a broad range of topics ranging from supply and demand to health care reform to planning for retirement. He has provided many service opportunities for students through the Montgomery County Breast Cancer Foundation – opportunities such as participating in Care Walk which is a 5k as well as selling charity coupon booklets at Elder Beerman. He also provided employment for a student who was unable to find a job anywhere else in the community. Perhaps the most visible contribution Jim has made to the district was his 13 year commitment to the graduation slide show – 13 years which represented a whole generation of Miamisburg students. Some of you know that Jim has developed a passion for making cupcakes, so he has even shared his baking skills with the staff and some of the classrooms – on one such occasion he topped the cupcakes with a delicate bird’s nest made from spun sugar. This past school year he made cupcakes to honor a student who was going on a mission trip to Ecuador.
This long and diverse list of Jim’s volunteerism to Miamisburg City Schools is a reflection of the type of person he is….generous with his time and kind with his actions toward others."
The Miamisburg City School District sincerely thanks Mr. Jim Hamilton for everything that he does for our district and our students and staff.
CAMPUS QUEST RECEIVES A $500,000 PLEDGE FROM A MEMBER OF THE MIAMISBURG HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1951
Eudon Holland had a very unique experience while at Miamisburg High School, supporting himself the last three and a half years. During his freshman year, his single mother returned to Tennessee with Eudon and his brother when her anticipated employment here did not materialize. After a short time, Eudon returned to Miamisburg alone. Emancipated, he worked his way through school washing and waxing cars, working at the school as a janitor, and at the A&P store.
While at MHS, he played football, was a class officer, and was homecoming king. He was basically adopted by his classmates, teammates, coaches, teachers, and the town. His senior year, he blocked an extra point against Fairmont assuring an undefeated season and the Miami Valley League championship.
After graduating, he spent two years at Heidelberg College playing football for Hall of Fame coach Paul Hoernemann, before an injury cut his career short. After a stint in the Army, he finished his degree at Wayne State University in Detroit.
Eudon worked for the IRS and taught classes at Schoolcraft and Walsh Colleges. He coached football for thirteen years in Livonia and Northville, Michigan, at both the little league and high school levels with a record of 68-18-7 as head coach, including an undefeated streak of 29 games. He also was elected as Treasurer of Northville Township. He was a volunteer fundraiser for the Salvation Army and Schoolcraft College, and was instrumental in obtaining substantial donations for those organizations.
Eudon is a practicing CPA and Certified Financial Planner in Northville, MI. He is a published author who just compiled a second book and is working on other literary projects. Proceeds from his first book, titled Boiled Peanuts and Buckeyes, have been given to the Viking Bowl, Historical Society, and MHS Alumni Association.
Miamisburg School District is seeking private donations to fund an outdoor complex and to renovate the high school campus. For more information, please click on this link. Remember to check back frequently for updates.
