May 2019


Hello 1970 Class members!


The time has come to send this letter to all of you.  As I mentioned in the April 2019 Newsletter that Jay Shopshire, Willena Osmola McDevitt, Connie Paine Henes and Kathryn McIntire Sutton are working with me on the 50th anniversary book. 


Each of you will have one page in the anniversary book with your profile and pictures.  We will use 1970 yearbook “selfies” of you; if none is available, we will resort to 1965 or subsequent yearbook pictures.  If you graduated after 1970 and have a senior picture, please send it to us.  Two things we need from you—


1. A Profile/Bio


     a.  Birthplace (city and state)

     b.  Last Residence before Gallaudet (city and state)

     c.  Current residence (city and state)

     d.  Last school before Gallaudet

     e.  Years at Gallaudet & Major

     f.   Life after Gallaudet

     g.  Status/Family

     h.  Major Achievements

     i.   Favorite Activities


2. Five to ten current pictures, specifically selfies (one will be picked to go with the 1970 or subsequent picture), family pictures, vacation pictures or activities.  They can be in color or black/white.

Please note:  We may need to edit the profile comments to fit in one page so keep the comments simple and to the point.  For the pictures, we will use the ones that will fit, are clear and the people are visible.

Deadline:  September 30, 2019

Please send your profile and pictures to Connie Paine Henes –  Connie will let you know she got them (your profile and the pictures).  Don’t wait until the last minute.  Start now so you can enjoy your summer! 

If you have questions, please contact me at
