Winter 2017-2018 

Dear Friends and Members,

As we head into 2018, it is with immense gratitude that I look back on what we have accomplished and thank our Board of Directors, members, and friends for their support.  You made 2017 a pivotal year for the LTAA, and have demonstrated the power of what our Lane Tech community is capable of when we all work together to strengthen connections, celebrate our heritage and support learning.

Whether at a regular Clocktower Club pop up, or one of our exclusive  events like the tour of the 606 Trail, alumni came out in droves to learn and laugh together… including those adventuresome Indians who attended our inaugural pilgrimage to Mesa, Arizona! (Registration is now open for year two)  Thank you to all of our friends… new and old, who make an effort to stay connected.

Volunteers helped research the many archival requests we receive, made our events run more efficiently, and assisted our Director of Alumni Relations in more ways than one could count. Thank you volunteers!

All five generations of alumni have become more engaged and are signing up, renewing, or upgrading their memberships.  We are focused intently on increasing our membership to ensure that the LTAA is a true reflection of the diverse and inclusive landscape of Lane Tech.  Thank you for being a dues-paying member of the LTAA! 

Producing events like “Tribe”, the first-ever student/alumni Art Exhibit, coordinating a research-based Sensory Wellbeing Hub for students with disabilities, or helping to send seventeen Lane seniors to college takes resources.  Every dollar donated to the LTAA is precious and has been handled conscientiously, extracting as much value as possible in order to realize our mission. Thank you donors!

We are poised to do even more in 2018 thanks to the enthusiasm of so many who are dedicated to making the LTAA the best high school alumni association in Chicago anywhere!

Thank you and Happy New Year!

Michelle (Milkovic) Weiner, ‘76

President, LTAA
