Notification of Class of 1965 Website activity

There are two official ways to receive notification of activity on our class website.  The first is to go to the website looking for updates, the second and preferred way is to be registered with the website’s FeedBurner email notification application.

If you received this notification by email to your account, you are registered in the class FeedBurner application and need to do nothing further to continue receiving notifications of activity on our LEHS Class of 1965 website.

This is part 1 of a 2 part notice.  The second part will be emailed from our Mail Chimp mass email distribution application to all class mates who we have email addresses for.

You will also be getting a copy of that email.

LEHS Awards Night — Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Our Class was once again able to give two $1,000 scholarships this year thanks to some generous donations this spring.  Thanks to Alan McGrath for volunteering to present our scholarships at the LEHS Award’s Night.  The Committee decided to give a scholarship to ROTC students since so many gave their time entertaining us and leading us touring the school the day after our 50th reunion on 9/12/15.
The two recipients of our scholarships are Marlene Rivera and Betsy Rodas Escobar.
Marlene ranks 23rd out of a class of 339 and is on the National Honor Society.  She plans to attend UMass Amherst where she will pursue pre-medical studies.  She attained the rank of Cadet Colonel while holding the billet of Cadet Commander.  She is a member of the Lynn English MCJROTC Lady Bulldogs Drill Team which has performed and earned many awards at local, city, state and national competitions.
Betsy ranks 70th out of the class and has been on the honor roll since the 10th grade.  She plans to attend Emmanuel College to pursue neuroscience.  She has been the lead coordinator for the LEHS American Red Cross Blood Drive for the past two years which has been a huge success.
In addition to their individual accomplishments, they each have a mile-long list of events they have volunteered for over the past years all the while putting in hundreds of hours in the ROTC program.  Marlene and Betsy have both worked very hard, and we wish them much success in their future endeavors!
Alan was most impressed with both young ladies shown in photos below with the famous “Bulldog”!


Betsy Rodas Escobar and Marlene Rivera

For future scholarships, we would be happy to consider any grandchildren of  classmates graduating from LEHS in good standing and going on to further their education after high school.  Please keep that in mind for next year if you have a graduating grandchild.

Update to Lunch with the girls May 25, 2017

As many of you noticed and pointed out to me, there were 14 members in the picture and only 13 names.

I did a cut and paste of the names supplied to me, so Elaine Laterza, it was not me who left you out.  I have corrected the caption in the original posting.

Elaine, since I took a lot of heat for this, and you were left out I think it would be only fair that “Picture taker” take us to Richardson’s for an Ice Cream.
