The Northeast Community College Board of Governors and campus community honored three individuals recently for career success and achievement following graduation.
Bryan Reichmuth, Humphrey, James “Jim” Sehi, Ft. Collins, Colo., and the late Lieutenant Commander Ernest H. Gleim were inducted in to Northeast’s Hall of Success. The Hall of Success is awarded to individuals for achieving significant professional success, exhibiting exemplary citizenship qualities, or making significant contributions to their communities and/or community affairs.
Reichmuth earned an associate of applied science degree in agribusiness from then-Northeast Technical Community College in 1981. He also played basketball for the Northeast Hawks. After graduation, he worked at Farmers Co-op Association in Lindsay. After a long career at Farmers Co-Ops and Central Valley Ag Cooperative, he is now senior vice president of grain and feed processing at Central Valley Ag. He is a licensed commodity broker holding a Series 3 and 30 brokerage license. He led the development of the ProEdge Commodity Risk Management program that provides Nebraska producers marketing assistance for their farming operations. He coaches girls’ basketball at Humphrey St. Francis High School, serves on the school board, and is active with the Nebraska Cooperative Council Association, High School Rodeo Association, 4-H, and his church.
Reichmuth and his wife, Lori, have four children and three grandchildren.
James “Jim” Sehi graduated from then-Northeast Technical Community College in 1987 with an associate of applied science degree in data processing/computer programming. He earned a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in computer information systems from Colorado State University College of Business.
He currently serves as the Information Technology Director for the Business Systems Group at JBS USA. According to its website, JBS is the largest animal protein processor in the world with 140 production facilities worldwide and over 120,000 employees.
Sehi manages a team of over 50 people representing the JBS USA SAP Core Competency Center and business systems support. While in this position, he served as the information technology lead and multi-shore project manager to standardize all North American, Australian, New Zealand, and Tasmanian operations into a single SAP platform supporting approximately 7,000 users.
He is active in the Ft. Collins Habitat for Humanity, United Way, and the Ft. Collins Soccer Club. He is a member of the Colorado State University College of Business CIS Advisory Board, an advocate in the SAP University Alliance program, and routinely presents to students at Colorado State University and ASUG events. Sehi and his wife, Debra, have two daughters.
The late Lt. Commander Ernest H. Gleim grew up in Polk and graduated from Norfolk Junior College (NJC) in 1951 where he studied agriculture. He was involved in NJC sports and extracurricular activities, including serving as president of his graduating class.
After graduation, he entered the Naval Cadet program, received his pilot’s wings, and was commissioned an Ensign in the Navy. In 1956, he became an instructor in the P2V aircraft used for anti-submarine patrol.
He was inducted into the Fraternity of Salt Mine Chippers Society in 1958 after a successful period of training other pilots. He later earned a bachelor of science degree from the University of Nebraska.
In 1960, he was selected to go to Naval Intelligence in Washington D.C. and later served as Intelligence Officer aboard aircraft carriers. While stationed in Korea from 1962-1963, he flew a twin-engine aircraft and was awarded a special commendation from the Korean Minister of Defense.
Lt. Commander Gleim was described by his nominator as an exceptional naval officer and pilot specializing in intelligence and anti-submarine patrol. “He excelled in a very challenging squadron, with shipboard and overseas staff assignments and was being groomed for squadron command when he and his crew perished in the Pacific Ocean in 1966 due to mechanical failure,” his nominator wrote.
He and his wife, Dorothy Gleim Claussen, now of Lincoln, had three sons, all graduates of the University of Nebraska.
Alumni from Elgin High and St. Boniface High Schools will be returning Saturday to attend banquets here in Elgin.
The Elgin High School Alumni Banquet will be held Saturday evening, June 23.
The location for this year’s event has changed. In previous years the banquet was held in the Elgin High School gymnasium. This year the banquet will be held in the air-conditioned Knights of Columbus Hall.
The banquet will begin at 7 p.m. Prior to the banquet an open house will be held at Elgin Public Schools. Honor classes are 1942, 1952, 1962, 1972, 1982, 1987, 1992, 2002 and 2012.
After the meal is served, there will be the announcement of scholarships to be awarded to several 2012 EHS graduates.
Also, the Honored Alumnus Award will be presented.
Alumni from St. Boniface High School will again gather to reminisce about days gone by.
The annual alumni banquet will be held Saturday night, June 23.
The schedule for the evening is Mass at St. Boniface Catholic Church at 5:30 p.m. Social hour will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall.
Dinner will begin at 7:15 p.m. at the Elgin Community Center.
No tickets will be sold at the door.
This year’s honor classes are 1942, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962 and 1967.
“If you want to get something done, contact Max!”
Those words were used to describe Max Bowman who has been selected as the 2012 Elgin “Good Neighbor Award” recipient. Sponsored by The Elgin Review newspaper, the award is handed out annually to the man or woman who has given his/her talents to benefit the community without expectation of reward or recognition.
Bowman and his wife Goldie came to Elgin in March 1978. They purchased their home in Elgin back in 1987, the former Gladys Martin residence.
During their years in Elgin, Bowman worked for many years at the Farmers Cooperative Exchange where he drove a semi-grain truck until June 1999 when he ‘retired.’
Retirement doesn’t really seem to be in Bowman’s blood because he remains as busy today as he was back then.
For 10 years he has served as vice president on the West Cedar Valley Cemetery Board and continues to do so to this day. The board plays a pivotal role in maintaining the cemetery. Approximately one year ago, Bowman and other board members completed a major project, creating a sidewalk running east and west down to the war memorial monument.
If that wasn’t enough, he also serves as president of the Elgin Community Center Board of Directors. In the last few years the center, which hosts many events in addition to providing weekday meals to senior citizens, has received a ‘facelift’ on the inside. The improvements make the center one of the best in the area.
The Bowmans have three children, Eugene, Loren and Janice, all who graduated from Elgin Public School. The couple have seven grandchildren.
Last year’s recipient of the award was Connie Dvorak.
