Edward (Skip)W. Gnehm, Jr.

Class of 1962

In the September issue of N&Cs, 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!
