The banquet and induction ceremony will be from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday, April 14, at the Boulder Falls Center, 605 Mullins Drive.

Tickets cost $35 each, and can be purchased at Lebanon High School, RKI Insurance, or via http://go.lebanonalumni.com/p/the.html

In its sixth year, the class of 2018 inductees will be:

Arts/Entertainment: Terri Krebs, Class of  1971

Terri Krebs played an integral role in founding Lebanon Association for Theatre Arts, a group of theatrical artists who’ve performed musicals for more than a decade and have helped upgrade the auditorium at Lebanon High School.

LAFTA got its start due to a need for a better sound system at the high school auditorium so student productions could be appreciated.

Proceeds from LAFTA have since helped supply LHS with a new light board and lights, new microphones and sound system, a drum set and percussion instruments, air conditioning, storage and shelving, tools and cleaning. LAFTA also formed an annual Kids Summer Theatre Camp, reaching students all the way from Albany, Scio and Sweet Home.

Athletics: Mike Jones, Class of 1969

Mike Jones coached wrestling at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., Canada for 41 years. He has coached both men and women Olympic wrestling champions, including athletes from two different nations.

Three gold medalists under Jones include Daniel Igali (Canada, 2000), Carol Huynh (Canada, 2008), and Helen Maroulis (USA, 2016).

Jones is considered one of the greatest wrestling coaches in Canadian history, and has been inducted into the Canadian Amateur Hall of Fame (1992), the USA Wrestling Hall of Fame (2005), and the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame (2011).

He has been named the CIS Coach of the Year, and twice named NAIA Coach of the Year, and Jones is a two-time NCAA runner-up for Oregon State (1971 and 1973), and took over the wrestling team at Simon Fraser in 1976; he retired in 2017.

During his tenure, Jones developed 18 Olympians, capturing 13 medals at Olympic and World championships.

Among his many accomplishments, Glancy designed and ran an emergency field hospital during an earthquake in Ecuador, and led relief work in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Glancy has been recognized by both the United Nations and the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance as a leader in humanitarian disaster relief, particularly for his work with the Ebola crisis in Africa.

Science/Medicine: Jeff Goold, Class of 1971

After earning his B.A. from Western Oregon University, Jeff Goold served three years in the Peace Corps by teaching in Liberia. He then returned to Oregon and earned a B.S. in geology at Oregon State University.

Goold worked as a geologist and environmental engineer, but it is reported that his passion was his volunteer work toward peace, justice and local environmental causes.

Not only did Goold multiply his Peace Corps service by recruiting multiple college students to join, but he worked locally to protect local environments and planted hundreds of trees.

Goold died in 2010; his brother, Jay Goold, will accept the award on his behalf.

Science/Medicine: Capt. Allan Walters, Class of 1986

Capt. Allan Walters is a U.S. Navy engineering duty officer who specializes in computer science, including designing both computer hardware and software.

He has played a key role in developing computer systems and software for military applications, earning praise for his ability to integrate computer science with Navy protocols, as well as his exceptional attention to detail – such as overseeing 7,600 computer system installations across the Navy with responsibility for a budget of $750 million and completing the assignment on time and on budget.
