Our Leader

Back then .. all those years ago .. we possessed more wisdom than we knew. We had been called upon to make a choice, a serious, hard-nosed choice that would affect us far into the future. We were called upon to choose a leader, someone from our class of very talented people, a leader among achievers, someone to represent us to the world, someone to keep us gathered together and in touch for years to come.

We searched everywhere. We searched the classrooms and the playing fields. We searched the labs, study halls and cafeteria. We searched the malt shops, the pizza parlors and even under the hoods of snazzy hot-rods. We searched down by the river side .. there!! .. out on the water, stroking like a galley slave in a long boat! It was Andy .. stroke, stroke .. strong back .. stroke, stroke .. keen eye .. stroke, stroke. He was made of tough stuff as were we all. Yes, he would be the one. Promptly, we elected him our President.

Decades have now passed. Never have we regretted our choice for a leader of our sterling Class. Andy .. Dr. Andrew Provence .. has done us proud. This from his Facebook bio -

"I grew up in Belleville, NJ where I was graduated from Belleville HS. I received a MA from Seton Hall U and doctorate from Rutgers University. I dedicated my entire life to education in every position from teacher to assistant superintendent."

The call has gone out. Dr. Andy says it's time for us to gather, time to celebrate 50 years of achievement, time to celebrate our Alma Mater. We'll be there.
