2017 THS Wall of Fame Inductees

During the 1996-1997 school year, Tipton High School established the Academic Wall of Fame, as well as the Distinguished Wall of Fame. The goals of the Wall of Fame committee were to honor former students of Tipton High School for their accomplishments while encouraging current students to work toward this distinguished honor.

The Tipton community congratulates the three THS Alumni who were added to the Academic Hall of Fame during the 2017 Seniors Awards Program:

Karen (Funke) Hum (Class of 1983).  After high school Karen earned her undergraduate degree from IU. She then attended Ball State University where she earned her master’s degree and in 2016 her doctorate in Educational Psychology. She has served as the director of institutional research for Ivy Tech, and served the state of Indiana as the psychometric consultant during the process of preparing the state’s high school equivalency examination in 2013. She was the technical editor for the book,  Statistics for Big Data for Dummies that was published in 2015. Recently, she took a position at Purdue University as the Director of Assessment.

Jordan Clouser (Class of 2007).  After high school, Jordan attended DePauw University and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. In 2014, Jordan earned his Doctorate of Juris prudence from Chicago-Kent College of Law. Currently, Jordan works for law of Huelskamp and Associates, specializing in criminal defense.

Justin Clouser (Class of 2004).  Justin also earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science degree from DePauw University and was a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton

Tipton Community School Corporation is a WeatherBug School. The WeatherBug Program collects weather data from our local site. This information is available to anyone in the community. Individual only need to download the program on their computer or app on their smartphone to receive weather information directly from Tipton. (Google WeatherBug)

As a WeatherBug School, TCSC has included the Lightning Alert System. The outdoor alerting system is a valuable community tool in alerting not only school patrons, but also patrons of the city park, the baseball diamonds, and fairground participants when lightning is in the immediate area. This system will sound a horn when lightning is detected eight miles away. This is a warning that people outside should seek shelter. (Click on the Blog's title to see full article including a map showing the range of the Lightning Alert System.)

Approximate range of the Lightning Alert Horns at TCSC.
When lightning is within 8 miles of the school, a fifteen (15) second alarm will sound. When lightning has cease to exist within this range for at least thirty (30) minutes, an all-clear signal will be given which is a series of three (3) short alarms of (5) seconds in duration each. Lightning alerts will also be received through individuals’ downloaded computer and phone applications.

The alarms will be activated between the hours of 6:00 am through 10:00 pm. This will prevent the alarms being sounded through the night or early morning hours.
