The class of ’61 celebrated their 50th reunion recently. The reunion team worked hard and had fun locating and contacting classmates; their efforts resulted in an event-filled weekend.
A 50/50 raffle, held during the dinner dance, dedicated the proceeds to inaugurating an Alumni Scholarship Fund. At a celebration luncheon, the class of '61 presented the first check to Rick Delmonaco, Arthur L. Johnson High School principal.
The group hopes that the Alumni Scholarship Fund will be sustained through the continuing contributions of alumni, individually or collectively through alumni events.
The ALJ Alumni Association commends the Class of ’61 for their founding efforts and encourages others to participate. The first scholarships will be presented at the annual honors assembly to be held on June 6, 2012 at 7 p.m.
