2012 Ilion Yearbook


Digitized Class Yearbook....

Two Thousand Twelve Mirror from the New York Heritage digital Ilion Free Public Library Yearbooks collection. Unfortunately, this yearbook contains different fonts that were not readable by the New York Heritage - ABBYY FineReader OCR to produce PDF index text. As a result, this yearbook may not be very useful as a search-able asset. Let that be a lesson to future yearbook editors. Link opens in new browser tab. (added March 27, 2021)

Ten years ago, the Class of 1966 raised funds to create a special memorial for classmate and Class Valedictorian Dr. James Patrei. The trophies and recipient plaque were presented to the school during the 2002 Ilion Alumni-All Classes/Sesquicentennial Mega-Reunion. Presenting the plaque, during the football game half time ceremony, were Kathleen Carney Donahue, Dave Smithson and Lou Patrei. Each year, the trophies are presented to the honorees and their names are added to the plaque which contains all the known names of past Valedictorians and Salutatorians. The Class of 2012 recipients are Bobbi Kristina Latray and Tressa Burrello. (May 5, 2012)

Tyler Brien and the Cortland Red Dragons won their first-ever Division III World Series and were welcomed home as national champions. The Red Dragons have been to the World Series 13 times. This was their first time winning the championship. Tyler is the son of Patrick Brien IHS 1996 and step-son of Katherine (Donahue) Brien IHS 1998.

In mid-May, Ilion's Tyler Brian was granted a "... a rare military exemption waiver earlier this week. The NCAA Division III Baseball National Committee allowed SUNY Cortland to include Brien on its 25-man playoff roster for the regional's opening two days Wednesday and Thursday at Falcon Park in Auburn, N.Y., and then replace him for the remainder of the tournament." see the full story - SUNY Cortland Relief Pitcher Fulfills Duty on the Mound and in the Military.
