Happy New Year to All Alumni!!

Just a quick note to say “Happy New Year” to everyone!!

I also just wanted to let everyone know I will be sending out IRS compliant receipts for donations to the Scholarship Fund to everyone who donated $250 or more.  We are a 501.(c).3 non-profit organization, and these donations are tax-deductible for those that itemize deductions. Donations of $250 or more require a receipt from the receiving organization, so I am proactively sending them out for those who donated $250 or more.

If you itemize deductions and donated less than $250 and would like a receipt of your donation, please request it by sending an email to  Please include your name, mailing address and graduation year so I can easily find your record in the database.
