Members of the Highlands High School Class of 1967 recently gifted the school library fund with a check for $250.00. Representing the Class in presentation of the gift were Susan Torchia, Reunion President and Larry Luckett, Reunion Publicity Chair. Accepting for Highlands were Lorna Klokkenga, Principal and Gloria Perez, Librarian.
The gift originated from funds remaining after expenses from the recent 40-year reunion of the Class of 1967. Over 250 Class members and their families returned to Highlands for the reunion in July 2007, where they enjoyed a campus tour and a dinner/dance.
“This gift is an expression of our gratitude for the education we gained from our attendance at Highlands,” said Luckett. “The large crowd of Class members who returned for the reunion shows the strong ties to Highlands that still remain with the Class today.”
“We’re very grateful that the Class thought of the Library,” stated Perez. “We can always use more books for our students.”
