I am a very proud 1970 graduate of Central Dauphin East High School. My elementary and secondary education started in the fall of 1957 when I attended the Overbrook School For The Blind in Philadelphia. I spent five years from Reading Readiness where I learned to read and write Braille to completion of the Fourth Grade in June of 1962. I then was enrolled in a pilot program in the East Pennsboro School District where I was given a chance to learn with sighted pupils. The program was so successful for us visually impaired students that at the end of my Seventh Grade experience, I was registered at Swatara Junior High; graduating in 1967 and from there, attended East High and Lebanon Valley College graduating in 1974.
Unable to obtain a teaching position in French, I sought employment with the State landing a job in September of 1976 with the Public Utility Commission where I worked for 35 years retiring in 2011. As I stated, I am a very proud graduate of East High and pleased to be able to contribute to the Youth Sports program.
I very much appreciate being a part of this group as well as the Harrisburg Christian Performing Arts Center and could not be more proud to know the people associated with both organizations. Thanks for the opportunity to be involved in something so worthwhile.
