Research

One of the Holt Community Foundation’s core values is research in the form of projects that create new knowledge or document local history.  Our foundation is relatively new and we are just now beginning to build our archives of Holt Community History!  Note: Tons of work goes into compiling the historical Holt documents and records you will find below.  Please consider donating to the H.O.L.T. Scholarship either at the bottom of this page or at this link if you appreciate the work that goes into keeping these historical records!

There are some existing, wonderful resources about Holt history:

At the Holt Community Foundation, we are doing what we can to support those entities as well as unearth some history and research of our own!

Holt High School Yearbook Archive

Note: Even though these yearbook files are “reduced size,” some are quite large.  None are over 64mb, but please know that downloading the PDF files might take awhile if you are on a slow internet connection.

Holt High School Athletics Archive

Our first project originated from our annual Jason Baragar Hoops Tournament.  Dozens of Holt High School alumni come together for that event and we began to notice that many of those players had old VHS tapes.  So, we put those tapes on the web!

Thanks go to legendary Holt Boys Varsity Basketball Coach Bruce Larner and wife Deb Larner – both Holt School Teachers – for their help compiling and scanning these rosters!  Coach Larner successfully mentored young men who participated in the Holt Varsity Basketball program over a 21 year career (1985 – 2006) culminating in a State Championship.  Read more about his impact in this 8-page retrospective (click here).

Thanks also to Coach Dave Foy – longtime Holt Public School Teacher – for all his help on this project and loaning us the videos to upload to YouTube!  Videos were also provided by: Luke Schrauben, Ryan Anderson, and Jeremy Baragar.
