Attention TJ alumni and Friends: We are currently raising money to replace all the championship banners in our gym to honor and preserve the storied history of Spartan Athletics. If you are interested in supporting this project financially, please email me at Any size donation is appreciated! You can also help by sharing this post with your classmates and family members who attended TJ.

A special thank you to our generous donors who have helped us reach half of our fundraising goal already: The Class of 1965, the Class of 1967, Dudley “Bo” Mitchell, Bob Masten, Kevin Shanahan, Roy Wilson, Steve Kreiger, Bob Nowlin and Eric and Kendra Black. We have already hung the first banner so that you can see an example of what your donation will help fund.

These hand sewn banners are of the highest quality and will upgrade the entire appearance of our gym. Visit to learn more. With additional funding we will be able to order league/city championship banners to ensure all of our past accomplishments in all sports are represented. Thank you in advance for your consideration and Go Spartans!
