Class of 1962
In the September issue of N&C’s, Dr. Gary Dorough, retired AHS principal
wrote, “A local Albany CPA came by to see me one day and brought a
picture of he & Skip Gnehm in high school. At that time, I googled him
up on the internet and read about his tremendous accomplishments. Skip
has had a long and distinguished diplomatic career. I truly believe he
should be added to the Albany Times notables.”
And so he shall be added ... with Indian Pride!
