There have been several Alumni Projects that former GCS students have helped to complete (see below for some of the latest). For 2022, the Alumni Project is the replacement of the Gym Lobby Doors. All Alumni Dues will go towards this project. The total cost is $11,000 and we already have $2,000! If you would like to give online to the Gym Lobby Doors Project, click the “Donate” button below. There will be options for you to direct your gift to Athletics (and specify Gym Lobby Doors). If sending a check, specify “Gym Lobby Doors” in the memo. We are also selling the old front doors from the High School to help with this. Bidding will be open for until October 1, 2022. Email email@example.com to make a bid on one or both of these doors.

Gym Floor Renovation
Gym Floor Renovation Completed! (2021)
Once the gym roof had been repaired, it was time to focus on renovating the floor. It had been over ten years since the floor was stripped, sanded and repainted. We were able to complete the project before the 2021-22 basketball season began. This $15,000 project was made possible through alumni donations! Thank you for those that gave towards this project that impacts every student on campus.
Lacy Elrod Gymnasium Roof Repair
Lacy Elrod Gymnasium Roof Repair Completed! (2020-21)
One of the most iconic buildings on the GCS campus is the Lacy Elrod Gymnasium. Built by GCS Board members, parents, students and alumni, the gym impacts every student every year. It hosts volleyball, basketball, pep rallies, Open House, Christmas and musical programs, awards programs, Kindergarten Graduation, High School Graduation and more. Maintenance of this building is vitally important. We asked for your help to put a protective coating on the gym roof. The total cost was $8,000. Thank you for helping with this project and for supporting our mission!
Ralph and Helen Hamm Gym Lobby Renovation
Ralph and Helen Hamm Lobby Renovation Completed! (2018)
Thank you for helping us honor those to whom honor is due! The Alumni Association dues were saved for the Gym Lobby Renovation. We are happy to announce that it was named after the late Ralph and Helen Hamm (G-Daddy and Pam-Pam to most who knew them). It is highly unlikely that anyone has attended more Generals Basketball games than these two. Mr. Ralph had every newspaper clipping seemingly ever printed, filmed games for years, made collages with photos and articles that he gave to the school, and continued to attend games long after his grandchildren had graduated.
Our goal was to raise $10,000 for a new floor, new ceiling, and new LED lights in the lobby. We did it with your help! The lobby was dedicated at Homecoming on December 15, 2018. Thank you for helping us honor a couple that loved GCS and basketball so dearly!
