Congratulations, Class of 2018 & Welcome Back, Alumni!
Dear Alumni & Friends,
Graduation and Reunion always remind us that our student body renews itself every four years and the rows of faculty that gaze out at the graduating seniors, the underclassmen, and their friends and families follow a different timeline.
Last Friday, June 1st, all three speakers—the senior speakers,
AJ Mastrangelo and
Jorie Van Nest, and the guest speaker,
Pam Nwaoko ’06—expressed gratitude for the teachers and coaches, advisors and dorm parents who have made such a difference in their young lives.
Every year, a few of these great influencers “graduate” with the seniors, and this June, we say goodbye to two of the school’s longest-serving faculty, Linda Deasy, who has been at LA since 1973, and Mark “Doc” Haman, who has been at LA since 1983. In the quiet of a post-commencement schedule, we were able to sit down with Linda and Mark to ask them about their work and their longevity at Lawrence Academy.
