Ashland High School Classes of 1946, 1951, 1956, Family and Friends (Arthur B. Gorsuch Endowed Scholarship)
Art Gorsuch moved to Ashland in 1930 to start his teaching career at Ashland High School as an English teacher. He later served as the Dean of Boys and Assistant Principal. He briefly moved to Coshocton to serve as Principal at their high school, but a short two years later returned to Ashland to fill the post of Principal at AHS. He served in that capacity until 1951, when he took a post with Columbia University as Regional Director of their Citizenship Education Project. In 1955, Art took the post of Dean of Special Studies at Ashland (College) University, to expand Summer School and Evening School programs for Teacher Education to help abate the severe teacher shortage. In that position, he also began a program at the Mansfield Reformatory to help inmates earn their high school diplomas and earn college credits while incarcerated. Art retired from the college in 1976, when he was awarded an honorary DLitt. (Doctor of Letters) for his service to the college.
