December 2020: EHSA President's Message
From Mike Thomas, '67
My hope is all English High Alumni who read our electronic newsletters are safe and families are together and healthy. As we have tried to help those in need, please reach out to your neighbor and your neighbor’s children to help them through these difficult school days. Giving makes us whole.
Many of you have donated on Giving Tuesday’s (December 1st) opportunity to contribute to our EHSA 200th Anniversary Fund. We thank you for your support. But if you delayed, it’s not too late to make a tax-deductible donation to help our Association in the planning and executing this much-anticipated historic event scheduled for October, 2021. Plus, through the end of 2020, we will thank those who make a gift of $100 or more with a special edition English High School lapel pin. Wear your English High pride!
As we march towards our 200th, please make sure we have your updated email address. Most of our communications will be via email this year and in the future. Visit our website (www.englishhighalumni.org) and under the Contact button fill out the "Join Our Mailing List" form with your updated information. This will insure you receive all our updates about school happenings and information about the Celebration.
In retrospect, in this challenging year we’ve made much progress in connecting with alumni via social media, our website and Virtual Webinars. Stay tuned in 2021 for more communications about your Alma Mater, student and alumni success stories, as well as our Association’s 200th plans. Please make your gift today. Your donation funds school activities, tutoring, college scholarships and preparations for our 200th Anniversary Celebration.
Take care, stay positive and test negative. Onward!!
