View Article  Happy New Year

Was 1955 a good year?  . . .  Because of that year, was 2005 equally as good?

We have shared in remembering the ol' days of class activities, connections with friends and faculty, preparing for the future.  Then later, remembering where we have been, how we have walked, with whom we have shared, we took stock of the past.

Now, as we look out on the year 2006, may we be prepared with a strong faith in God, close relations with family and friends, and a heart that reaches out in redemption to the world around us.   May God bless you with health and strength in the new year.  Lila

View Article  Class of '55: Finding the "lost"


Sterling Smith(my ENC roommate) and Georgiana(Spaite) Smith have been my dear and appreciated friends since ENC days.  Because of that long friendship, I agree to help find "lost" members of the class of '55.

ENC provided me with a list of about 70 names.  So far, I've established the current status of thirty people with 18 living, 11 deceased and one MISSING PERSON case.

The female names are most difficult because of name changes due to marriage.  ENC gives me no hints as to maiden names.  Thus, when the given last name is not listed in the old Nautilus', I'm forced to go through the Nautilus, looking for a first name and middle initial that may be a match. (Actually, that has worked.)

The unfound names on the "lost" list remain illusive.  I'm thinking of posting a list of those names on this web site in hopes that someone out there may have helpful information to share.  I'll do that soon. 

I consider friendship to be the highest human achievement and to lose contact with an old friend is like losing a treasure.  I hope you will be willing and able to help me.
