Summer 2017 

Dear fellow alumni,

The lazy days of summer aren’t so lazy here at the LTAA. 

We are dispersing more than $127,500 in scholarships to seventeen deserving Lane Tech graduates headed for colleges and universities all across the country.  We send out our sincere thanks to all of the alumni, and families of alumni who generously donate to the scholarship fund.  The students at Lane are more academically gifted and goal-oriented than ever, despite more than 58% coming from low or moderately low-income families.  These gifts are some of the most personal and significant offered to graduating seniors at Lane. Thank you.

The annual membership drive is also underway!  Many memberships expired in June so we are busily processing lots of renewals. We extend our thanks to those of you who have renewed, and welcome those who have signed up for the first time.  We’re delighted to have you join us!  And now that you have your membership in order, we hope you will also participate in our summer events!

August 3rd marks our 15th annual golf outing where we have refocused our efforts not just on getting those handicaps down, but also on raising funds for our teacher grant program.  Foursomes are selling out fast but come for dinner! Then on August 25th, the “thirsty souls who bleed myrtle and gold” will be holding a Clocktower Club at Dovetail Brewery, an alumni-owned brewery located in a renovated machine shop… what could be more logical? Wrapping up the season, we will be producing a student-alumni art exhibit at Lane Tech’s Gallery 2501 called “Tribe”.  Work from this intergenerational group of artists will be on display from September 12-October 24, with an opening reception on September 14th.  If you are an artist, or know of amateur or professional artist-alumni, just click on the “events” tab here on the website for more information and an application form.  The show will be on display during homecoming as well as class reunion tours of the school so be sure to check it out!

Our Director of Alumni Relations, Joanna Perez, ’95 and the Board of Directors is committed to making the LTAA a vibrant, inclusive organization.  Help us realize that goal by becoming active with your alumni association.  We look forward to seeing you!

Warmest regards,

 

Michelle (Milkovic) Weiner, ‘76
