Rick Rediske was contemplating a potential summer job before his senior year at Sidney High School when his dad suggested the Sidney Municipal Water Plant. "It fits your interest in both chemistry and water," father told son. Rick applied and was hired. His supervisor had a tie to a University of Michigan professor that would become helpful when he was seeking a graduate school. Little did Rick know it but his launch was underway toward eventual induction into the Sidney City Schools Hall of Honor.
Richard R. Rediske (SHS 1970) is now a member of the Hall's class of 2018 along with Raeburn E. Barnes (SHS 1892), Ardiss Willman Luce (SHS 1967), and Mike Herbert (SHS/JVS 1985) to raise membership to 127 over 25 years. The foursome will be inducted in the SHS auditorium at 7pm on Friday, April 20, followed by a gymnasium reception across the hall with both events open to the public.
