The Golden Graduates of Winchester High School: 
A Small Indiana Town’s Remarkable Achievement

The Golden Graduate Book is a celebration of our wonderful schools in Winchester and a reminder of the fine education we received.

The Alumni Endowment Board is delighted to inform you that work has begun on Volume 2 of Golden Graduates of Winchester High School.


Our second volume will include 30 additional profiles of remarkable Winchester graduates, again spanning the first 100 years of Winchester High School (including Driver and Winchester Community).

We thought we had all the great stories in Book #1. But wait until you see what we have for you in Book #2! Dane Starbuck and Pat Knasinski are collaborating to produce the second book and anticipate it to be available in 2023.

The first book is still available for purchase!

If you have not yet purchased a copy of the first book, we will ship your order or you may purchase copies at this year’s Alumni Banquet.


They are also available for purchase at Haines Soda Fountain and Gift Shop in downtown Winchester.


Cost per book is $25. If shipping is required, please add an additional $5 per book. Every dollar benefits the Alumni Endowment Fund.
