After student teachers returned to campus, the class' first formal duty was senior capping. November was high- lighted by Dr. Willett's inauguration in which the seniors were honored to participate. The remaining winter months were spent in ordering invitations and planning the final program for graduation. Then, after months of hard work, the seniors enter- tained the underclassmen with their skit depicting their four years' experience.
The senior banquet followed as a final activity before exams. Gradua- tion climaxed a memorable year for each member of the senior class. Patty Kingsley and Carol Skelley proudly admire the announcements for graduation exercises. Home Ec. Assoc, V- Pres. Business; Geist, Treas. Elementary Educa- tion; Transfer; Corkettes.

What has made this year a dynamic, and stimulating year, full of academic, cul- tural, and entertaining activities? Fall is perhaps the busiest time of the year. Oktoberfest was at its best with skits, booths, and clowns galore.
Sorority rush was anticipated with hushed expectation as rushees chose their favorite group. Seniors were asked to take part in the inauguration of our new president. Willett, Jr. Winter brought numerous Christmas activities and an anxiously awaited vacation. A hectic examination period and those all-important semester grades followed.
The tradi- tional and memorab'e senior activities including Senior Class Night, Senior Banquet, and Commencement were an apt closing to a rich and rewarding school year. The Class of was an active one this year. They began the year by welcoming their sister class, the freshmen, with a Red 'n White sing and a Freshman Serenade. Geist, a concert by the Yale Spizzwinks, and Christmas caroling rounded out the first semester for the juniors. Second semester the class presented a Laugh-in and participated in the annual song contest.
This year "Days of Wine and Roses" was chosen as the theme. The class ended the year by presenting Dr. Willett's portrait to Longwood. Juniors get measured for rings. Nancy Newhard proves no exception. In Sep- tember, the Sophomores helped their sister class present the "Miss Miscellaneous" contest for the green and white skit. During Geist the Sophs presented their booth, "Love makes the world go round.
In December, the class held an auction to which a great many faculty members contributed. Longwood's class of initiated more Red and White spirit on campus through its active participation in all aspects of college life. Looking somewhat bewildered at registration in September, the Freshmen quickly shed their beanies and adjusted to social and aca- demic regulations. The Kennett Rotaract Club is seeking to grow its membership of 18 to 30 year olds interested in community service and fun. Please let all those you know who might be interested in growing their set of service oriented friends about the club and encourage them to attend.
Rotary Readers. Rotary Readers is so successful improving student performance the Kennett School District wants to make it available to all children in grades 1 through 5. The program is being expanded to add math and mentoring to the basic reading program. Volunteers are needed to meet the demand. All you need to do is spend a minimum of 30 minutes per week with the student you are assigned at a time of your choosing. I know I get more from the time I spend with my student than he gets from me.
Himalayan Hope. Hans started this project in shortly after his mother died. Therefore the school is named Gayatri after his mother. While the school educates all children it has a special focus on girls, so the ratio is 6 girls to each boy at the school. Gayarti school started 19 years ago as an elementary school. As it has proven its ability to teach a range of grades it has been allowed to add additional higher grades, so it has recently been expanded to the full K through 12 grades. Its first high school graduation will occur within the year.
Hans hopes to expand Gayatri into college level teaching at some time. The sports club provides a race day that features runs up to a half marathon. This event has grown to attract participants now. To attract highly qualified teachers their stipend includes western style housing on the school campus and support to participate in continuing education. As a further way to ensure the quality of education, Gayarti school uses donated laptop computers to provide access to the Khan Academy, a leader in online education, and the general Internet for research.
They work with the students on their several week long visits to do experiments and provide other assistance, helping to ensure a sound and high quality science, technology engineering and math curriculum. To ensure students are able to attend, Gayarti school provides bus transportation to and from school for students. The overall impact is that Hans has in many ways replicated the American public school system. It is also far less expensive.
To date there are 37 scholarships. All of them are merit based except two which are needs based. Successful applicants must pass a test every year to qualify for their scholarship.

Jeff Cyron. Jeff grew up in Avon Grove as the oldest of five. They are now living all over the US. In all of them he was competent but not a star. The sport he has stayed with is ice hockey, even playing on a club team during his freshman year at the University of South Carolina. That was a truly interesting experience. Ice rinks are not exactly common in South Carolina, so they had long road trips for everything, including just getting to practice.
Games were often scheduled around football game times and locations. Follow the football team, play an ice hockey game in the morning, and make the tailgate parties and game in the afternoon. Ice hockey is part of how Jeff joined Longwood Rotary. He plays in an adult league now with Len Vannicola and Mark Rybaczyk.
They talked Jeff into joining our club. Jeff majored in Accounting and has been a practicing accountant since graduating. He worked for 2 Delaware firms and now has joined his father's firm here. One of Jeff's favorite activities is driving across the US to visit new states. So far he has visited 34, and his goal is to visit all Frequently these trips are done with his younger brother, so they are a great way to stay connected with his far flung siblings.
Jeff finds interacting with the athletes at Special Olympics events especially rewarding. They are incredibly warm and absolutely love their sport. Working as a Habitat for Humanity volunteer Jeff has helped build about a half dozen homes here in Chester County. The reward here comes from the joy of the families moving in to the new homes.
Charlie Carpenter. Charlie started his story with the family history of both his mother and father's families. The family history of his mother was told very succinctly - little is known. His father's family is very aware of its history, which reaches back to when Hans Zimmermann immigrated. Hans was financially successful and bought property from William Penn for a farm and home in Chester County. Apparently William Penn's record keepers preferred to use English and changed "Zimmermann" to "Carpenter" on the land patent. The family name has been Carpenter since.
The Carpenter family expanded across the US to the midwest, which is where Charlie was born and grew up. However, he felt he missed something by marrying early, so encouraged Charlie to take a year off before going to college. Charlie was more than happy to spend the year skiing the Rockies, working as a bartender.
Charlie then worked at a bank for a year. He found the experience boring, so he became an event planner for a restaurant he worked at while skiing. One of the events he planned required him to work with a demanding young woman who called constantly with demands and issues. Charlie grew to hate the sound of her voice when she called. He finally met Tanya at the event.
Both Tanya and Charlie maintained careers until they moved to Cincinnati when Tanya's job required it. At the same time Tanya was pregnant. Charlie's grandfather was concerned that Charlie, as the only Carpenter of his generation, have a son so the name would continue. Luckily Sam was born, meeting the demand, since their second child they is a daughter.
Tanya's job involved almost constant travel so Charlie became his nanny for five years. After his spell as nanny Charlie looked for a new job and ended up managing a farm. This had a certain irony since Charlie's father always wanted to be a farmer. He bought the land but was not knowledgeable enough to operate it, so on a handshake he rented the farm to a local family.
That hand shake deal still persists to this day. Operating the farm for a wealthy family led Charlie to managing family trusts, which is his current career. Polar Plunge. Margaret Egli Returns.

Milena Oberti-Lanz, Executive Director, explained the overall mission of the Maternal and Child Health Consortium as empowering families to achieve better health. They focus their services on pregnant women, infants and families with young children so their teaching has a long term impact on large numbers. Services are provided from 5 offices spread throughout Chester County, one of which is in Kennett Square.
Because the US child population is more diverse than the overall population, all of the service providers at Maternal and Child Health Care are multi-lingual. Many new parents don't understand how our medical system works. Therefore one of the services provided is Healthy Start. As Cecelia Arce, the Program Director shown left, explained, this program begins during the first trimester of pregnancy and works with the entire family. These screenings occur three times, the first during pregnancy and the other at one and six months after delivery.
They work with the family in their home about once per week to educate the parents in child care and development, ensure they have transportation to get to medical appointments and work, and even help solve housing and employment issues, all done by working with other agencies as needed. Diabetes is more likely among some of our minority populations because of genetic propensity, diet and exercise patterns, the cost of food junk food is usually cheaper , and the huge change in environment they experienced when they moved to the US.
They have gone from growing their own food to buying it from a bewildering array of choices. Last year 4, clients were assisted with insurance applications. Low income clients are assisted applying for SNAP food stamp benefits. These are working poor families impacted by the high cost of housing and poor public transit in Chester County.
For example, fathers are taught how their children learn so they can then teach their kids how to manage their behavior. Screening services for development level are part of the program so its success is continuously measured. Therefore, last year a new program was tested to acclimate these children to the kindergarten environment. The program was designed and operated with the assistance of Kennett School District's Mary D Lang kindergarten center staff.
Class disruptions caused by stressed out kids almost disappeared. With this successful test completed, the program is being scaled up this year. The festivities begin about 9 AM with the crossing scheduled for Our team consists of Bob Curran, Al Iacocca and others.

This has been a major funds generator at our auction now for years. Sustainable Community Project Process. Bob Curran , President of the Longwood Rotary Club Foundation, has developed a process to move from the Community Needs Assessment recently completed to the development of needed and sustainable major projects we can support.
These categories identify the areas where the community identified significant needs we can potentially meet. To convert these categories into specific projects we have to decide where we want to focus. To that end, all attending completed a survey in which we ranked these categories by their importance. The results of that prioritization defined the following 5 areas for detailed development into projects, listed in the order of importance we collectively assigned : Education, Transportation, Housing, with Community Development and Job Training essentially tied at number 4.
The goal is to have projects ready for membership approval in March this year. Projects can be of any size. Our critical role is leadership. Responsibilities of Club Directors.

Dick Sanford, Operation Warm's founder, reminded us that Operation Warm was started by the Longwood Rotary Club 20 years ago this year when Dick decided to do something about the children he saw waiting for school buses with no coats during the winter.
The club joined Dick in buying new coats for 58 kids at a local store. The coats will be distributed through 1, events spread through across all 50 states. The sponsors fund and help staff the three hour events where up to kids shop for their new coat. Every sponsor finds this to be one of the most satisfying activities they can do. Often those who work at the event find themselves in tears at the overwhelming joy the kids show in their new coat, possibly the first truly new piece of clothing they ever owned.
The coats are a source of immense pride and confidence for their wearers. Kacie's Cause Update. It gives him a place where he can quietly heal himself by thinking about his loss and how he can help others avoid the pain he has suffered. Rochelle Brittingham.
See a Problem?
After graduation from Avon Grove High School she attended Millersville University, majoring in psychology and sociology. London is still her favorite city. She met her husband, Nick, during her college years, and they married shortly after graduating. Rochelle continued to broaden her travel experiences when she attended the University of North Texas to earn her masters degree in emergency management by traveling to Turkey for a research project.
After completing her masters, Rochelle and family returned to this area so she could earn her Doctor of Philosophy in disaster management at the University of Delaware. The University of Delaware was the first university in the US to focus on research in the disaster management field, therefore it is widely recognized as the top institution for disaster management professionals. Rochelle continues to participate in research efforts at the University, which focuses on policy questions in disaster recovery and management.
Rochelle's field work included studies in Japan after the tsunami destroyed the Fukushima nuclear plant, and following up on the Sandy Hook hurricane clean up in New York City. So work related travel has not always been to exciting places like Sweden and Copenhagen. The Fukushima disaster was caused by the power of a truly major tsunami. They were the people shown on TV scaling a radio antenna on their roof top to safety. Fire is not the primary area of concern in our area though. That is the loss of electricity, especially on a broad basis for an extended period. In addition to her work with the County, Rochelle is an adjunct professor at Millersville University and a lecturer at Wilmington University.
Rochelle's at home hobby is weaving. When asked what most of us never think about in our personal disaster planning, Rochelle said the big forgotten issue is protecting key documents.

Part of this preparation was instituting the liaison program with those groups we invest in.
This helps us better understand their needs long term, ensures our investment is spent well, and helps us create linkages between groups when appropriate. Habitat for Humanity - Potential Project. Chip Huston, Executive Director of the local Habitat chapter for the past 14 years, noted they have now built homes in Chester County. Finally these new homes often provide a stabilizing influence to neighborhoods that could easily slide into poor condition.
The homeowners are selected through a rigorous process. They are low income, have a history of paying their bills, and must pass tests after taking classes on home maintenance and personal finance. Habitat is getting close to final approval for a new 40 home development in West Grove to be placed on 6.
Like all Habitat for Humanity homes they will be provided to their new owners after they complete training and supply at least hours of volunteer labor for its construction. Like all Habitat homes they are designed to fit into their local neighborhood. In this instance that means building blocks of five townhomes, a first for Habitat locally.
The other first with the West Grove development is using the US Department of Agriculture as a source of funding, possible because of the location. It means the mortgage interest rate is expected to be in the one to two percent range. Building is expected to start in the June time range and take 4 to 6 years to complete.

Sophia Qureshhi, to the right of President Tammy Duering , was recognized as our student of the quarter. Sophia has been active in politics for a number of years, with a strong interest in getting people to vote. As a co-founder of the Democrat's club in Unionville High School, Sophia helped lead several get out the vote efforts targeted on everyone, not just Democrats. They conducted a door-to-door campaign talking with everyone to encourage voting.
In the future Sophia sees the two clubs joining to work together again on youth voting and anti-gun violence. Sophia sees much more active youth involvement in politics after the past campaign season based on the growth in activity between and This past summer Sophia accompanied her father, who is a doctor, to some of the unofficial Syrian refugee camps in Jordan. These camps house thousands of people and receive no government services since they are not officially recognized. As a result of that visit, Sophia recognized the huge need for women's health and hygiene assistance in Jordan.
Sophia plans to go into international law for her career. She has yet to decide on her college choice. Issues in Aging. Dementia is a slowly progressing "disease" that heavily impacts all the family members of those afflicted. Billions of hours are invested in providing care, which can be needed all day. Care givers can become isolated and exhausted. Eventually the care giver needs help to meet the needs of the person with dementia. Dementia is associated with the shrinking of our brains as we age.
The shrinking creates space within our skulls that is filled with increasing volumes of the normal fluids surrounding our brains. The hippocampus is also damaged, impairing our ability to create new memories. We don't know what causes dementia, but we do know there is a genetic component. There is no cure, just the ability to manage the symptoms more effectively.
The underlying causal condition can start 15 to 20 years before any symptoms are recognized. Even after symptoms start to appear we are often quite productive, further compounding diagnosis issues. Dementia is often accelerated by accidents such as falls. The body shifts its use of nutrients to support repairing the injury, resulting in a more rapid advance in dementia.
That is one reason for the apparent correlation between balance issues and dementia. Thinking games such as crossword puzzles and sudoku help reduce the advancement of dementia. You really can directly exercise your brain. If you know a worthy student please reach out to Ethel Ann. Since our club pays the participation fee, this is free for the students.

All hotel rooms within miles of the city are occupied by local residents who lost their homes to the hurricane.

This exceptional performance is achieved by living the District mission every day, which Dr. Tomasetti summarized as: "No matter who comes in, improve their success every day". The program is integrated into classes from kindergarten through twelfth grade. It takes potentially dull information and relates it to the real world by using hands on activities such as building a marshmallow throwing machine in third grade, or building bridges and testing them to the point of collapse a few years later.
Various technical tools are introduced so the students experience some of the tools used by engineers and other professionals. Right now there is even a group of seniors working with Bentley Architects on design projects. An example of the success of this approach can be seen in the internationally recognized robotics team. Parental engagement is a critical success factor in the US approach to education. Parents are brought together with successful students from the same culture to learn what their kids can achieve and the support successful students need. These parents also get assistance to show them how to support early brain development through games, reading and other shared activities with their children.
Parents with older children are involved in the APEX program where they work with volunteer parents from the community to learn how our education system works and they can support it, and the value their children will gain from a solid education. This program is integrated into normal class work for all grades. This allows students to receive special instruction without losing ground in regular courses. The ELD program is successful.

Arts Holding Hands and Hearts. Arts Holding Hands and Hearts is a non-profit that was started by Jan Michener, its current Executive Director, in to serve the vulnerable youth in Chester County. Its goals is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations that traps multiple generations in poverty. To accomplish this goal AHHH focuses on the arts, literacy, and mindfulness. The impact of the full AHHH program is being studied now.
The results will tell Jan how successful AHHH is in changing the multi-generation cycle of poverty and provide the information she needs to expand and improve the program. Each box is unique in design and decoration. The design is determined by the volunteer builders, as long as the box meets the size criteria. Artists then take over and paint each box with a unique design. Many of the boxes are being painted by recognized artists, as well as students at the Garage and the Unionville High School arts society.
Jan knows the books are being used. That means 40, books are now in the homes of children where they can practice their reading skills at their own pace. To support this rapidly expanding program, Jan is beginning formal fund raising efforts. One new effort consists of partnering with the Kennett Book Resale shop.

Are you ready for your shifts? Aileen Kim, Exchange Student. She is a 16 year old from Busan, South Korea, a seaside city known for its beautiful beaches. Her English name is Aileen Kim. Aileen was sponsored by the Busan Hoedong Rotary club for her exchange year. Aileen has long wanted to come to the US. She fell in love with our country through American films. Her favorite is Spiderman. Hopefully she will not be disappointed by our lack of such heroic crime fighters in the Kennett area. As a coastal city, Busan shares the low frigid winter temperatures of the rest of Korea, but escapes the snow much of Korea experiences.
The city has four seasons with beautiful foliage in the fall just as we have here. Her brother has been in a band since he was in high school and continues to play in bands now. Aileen shares her brother's interest in music but expresses it as a singer and dancer.
She performs traditional Korean dances as well as dancing to her favorite musical genre, K-Pop. They sing at many district and other Rotary group meetings. Aileen's dedication to music is strong considering she spends about 2 hours per day practicing. An unexpected story Aileen told us is that Koreans celebrate Halloween.
They celebrate by attending costume parties, but not trick or treating. Clearly Aileen enjoyed our version of Halloween when she reported she collected pieces of chocolate through her trick or treat efforts. Brendan Murphy Classification Talk.
