$1954+$3300 Donated to Mepham Library
THIS PAST APRIL, Dr, Lance Blackshaw met with Principal
Eric Gomez and Librarian Shari Stack and presented our annual
Class of 1954 Library Fund donation. An additional contribution
of $3300 has been made by classmate Dr. Mark Mobius to create
a "reading nook" in the Library ... photos will
be available when the project is finished later this year.
Spearheaded by Bob "Vince"
Ferrigno in 2015, the Mepham High School Class of 1954 Library
Memorial Fund was established "to honor our fellow classmates
and the many individuals in the Mepham community who have so
positively impacted our lives." Since then, our class has
continued to make annual donations of $1954. You may contribute
towards this award. See below.
The funds have been utilized
for books and other equipment that the staff felt were needed,
Some examples of previous donations have been:
- Six iPad Airs. Each iPad is
engraved, "Gifted to Mepham High School by the Class of
- Six MacLocks, rotating and tilting
iPad enclosures, along with six stools for added student seating
- Creation of an IPad Reference
- "MakerSpace," a DIY
creation area for students to gather, build, invent and learn."
to all our donors
who have so generously donated
to the library fund!
This will be
a continuing annual award, and if you wish to contribute, contact
Bob Ferrigno at Vincef369@gmail.com.
