Mankato High School

Welcome to the Mankato High

Class of 1969 Website

Bruce Boevers was inducted into the West High School Hall of Fame on Sept. 30.  Cheering him on were classmates Lynn Nordgren, Patti Tryhus, Carol Hayes, and Janet Goff.  Bruce and his wife Mary were joined by many other family members.  After a short introduction by Janet, Bruce gave a heartfelt acceptance speech (off the cuff, with no notes).  He spoke about the great opportunities he had in high school--classes such as Marty Wiltgen's humanities class which allowed him to test out of a similar course at West Point.  "And humanities was just an elective class in high school!"  He mentioned Rev. Dave Shaefer's German class, which prepared him for some great overseas assignments in Europe. Best of all, he got to marry the girl who sat next to him.  Bruce ran cross country each year in high school.  While it helped him be strong enough to become a Ranger, alas he never earned a letter.  But wait!!  West principal Sherry Blasing knew all about this and made sure he got one at the end of the evening!  During his military career, Bruce continued taking advantage of opportunities that sounded interesting--just as he had done in high school--resulting in unusual and  varied assignments around the globe.  Bruce, we are proud of you and proud of West High School!
