Mock Trial a Success!
Jefferson County Schools produce a county-wide newsletter called the Monday Memo.  Seneca's pre-Law students were featured in the February 18th edition when they participated in a mock trial.  Seneca Alumni Doug Lamb '72 is also quoted in the article.  Check it out here.
Calling All Football Players
Seneca Past and Present is working with David Seewer '74 and Diane Drescher '74 to be able to provide Seneca with a new football stadium scoreboard.  The current scoreboard is the same one from the 1970's - and it looks like it!  If you are interested in helping with this fundraiser, contact Seneca Past and Present.
Plans are also in the works with JCPS to rename the Seneca football stadium the Ron Cain Football Stadium to honor Seneca's beloved coach.
Scholarships and Awards
The Class of 1962 is sponsoring an Essay Award for students this year.  Criteria will be available soon by contacting the Counselor's office.  This class is challenging all other reunion classes to explore these types of options to get involved with today's Seneca High School. 
Seneca Past and Present will also be providing a $500 scholarship this year to one college-bound Senior.  Criteria is available from Senior Counselor Michelle Ising.
Thank You Received
Harolynn Harris recently sent a thank you to Seneca Past and Present for our donation of $500 to the Drama Department.  This money will go to offset the costs of a bus for students to travel to New York City this spring.
