Welcome to the
Bishop Thomas K. Gorman
Middle School/High School
alumni resource page


This page is designed as a one stop resource for those desiring to locate high school classmates. Though primarily targeted at the alumni of Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Middle School/High School and its predecessor, Tyler Catholic High School, it can be readily utilized by any individual seeking a clearer understanding of the resources available and the philosophy behind each. It was born of my frustration, when attempting to locate a user friendly and semi-comprehensive jump station, toward finding members of my graduating class. Along with each resource located herein is a short commentary on experiences and views regarding the utility of each site. Keep in mind that YMMV when it comes to an opinion and the your interpretation may differ widely from mine.

Previous visitors to this page will note the radical redesign. The sites which were previously itemized and expanded on this root page have been relocated to the link entitled "third-party resources" in the navigation panel to the left. Several additional features have been added as well. Simply mouse-over any of the menu items for additional information about content.

Another change is the creation of rolling change log of site additions and updates located below. This is intended as an aid to returning visitors so that they may have a relatively quick means of determining what, if any information has been altered since their last visit.

If you have a question, comment or suggestion about any content located here, please do not hesitate to make use of the link (envelope image) below to contact the content creator.

Crusader Football 'bLog

A parent of one of the seniors has created a 'bLog to track the progress of the 2006-2007 TKG Crusader football program. Content includes highlights and press clippings as well as video and still images. It is quite well done and worthy of a visit by anyone interested in following the season.

Facelift for TKG website

With the 2006-2007 school year set to begin in two days, a recent visit to the TKG website reveals that the virtual campus has undergone a bit of plastic surgery over the summer. Gone is the rather kludgy FrontPage-based system. In its place is a more robust and versatile management system constructed upon the open-source Drupal CMS. This shift in administrative paradigm should herald the dawn of a more functional and informative system.

Gorman Alumni Forum

Interested TKG alumni are invited to visit the school website to register and partake of a new feature. The school administration has installed an interactive forum. Based upon the open-source Lussumo Vanilla, the forum serves as a means for past students to keep in touch and interact with one another, while avoiding the fees associated with commercial alumni/reunion sites.

All former students are invited and encouraged to take advantage of this resource.

1984, 1985 Reunion

The combined 20th and 21st Anniversary reunions for the Classes of 1984 and 1985 was held this weekend in Tyler. A trio of events were held over the span of twenty-four hours at various locations. Forty-eight former students with their spouse and families reunited, in some instances for the first time in decades, to rekindle friendships and reminisce. Special appearances were made by the current principle of TKG and over half a dozen former teachers. It was a wonderful weekend and all involved in planning and participation are congratulated on a successful reunion event.
