SPECIAL REPORT . . . PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
On Friday, 10/26, we held a Committee meeting at LSHS to discuss our Scholarship andits future administration. Attending were Marilyn Pruyn, Margaret Offen, Ed Heinlein, HaroldShewmaker, Terry Reynolds and Marilyn Williams. Ed gave us a financial report on the Fund,which continues to grow.A couple of specific subjects were discussed, the first being the Scholarship growth. One
means of growth is the naming of the Fund in your obituary as a memorial opportunity “in lieu of flowers,” as did Mr. Brockman. Our Class should feel so
special because of histhoughtfulness and generosity. Mr. B took his
in the Class of ’57 very
seriously. But even if the Fund is not mentioned in the obituary of the classmate, it is a perfectopportunity to say
“goodbye; you will be missed” as Ed has mentioned frequently. Several of us
have already been sending a small contribution in memory of each classmate as they leave us.
Keep in mind IT’S NOT THE SIZE OF THE GIFT THAT IS IMPORTANT … no gift is
considered too small or too large. We just would like to have
in the Class feel as if they are a major part of this project.
And the second subject discussed was “who is going to administer our Fund in the distantfuture?” Not the collection and investment duties, which will always be the responsibility of theLee’s Summit Educational Foundation, but in making the decisions and
doing the work that ourClass Committee performs right now. We hate to admit it, but eventually ALL of us are going tohave the opportunity to be memorialized by the Scholarship. We decided it would be nice to beable to count on our Scholarship recipients to see that what we have started continues on inperpetuity after we are all gone. We plan to contact our first few recipients and see if we can getthem involved while we are still available to help them learn of our purpose in establishing theFund and let them know we would appreciate their carrying on for us.Hopefully, if we can pull off the above plan of action, the Class of 1957 will remainactive at LSHS for many years to come.
