ANNOUNCEMENTS

Robert Charles Robson
 
We received the sad announcement that one of our classmates has died.  Joe Herring found this sad info and reported the following:
 
It appears that we've lost another classmate (from this morning's Washington Post). I had little contact with Charley in high school and haven't seen him since we graduated in 1964. But I knew him as a boy, growing up in NE Washington. I'll try to find some additional information about him. But I'm not too confident.
 
Robert Charles Robson (Age 71)  

On December 7, 2018. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy. Visitation, Tuesday, December 11, 2018, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Francis J. Collins Funeral Home, Silver Spring, MD. Interment on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at 1 p.m. at Gate of Heaven Cemetery.

Jim Vance Media Program Announced By Carroll

Named After Washington Journalist and News Anchor, Jim Vance
 
Today, Archbishop Carroll High School formally announced the new Jim Vance Media Program.  This highly competitive program is for incoming freshmen interested in specialized journalism and media skills to advance their college preparation and future career endeavors.
 
The Jim Vance Media Program is made possible through a $5 million donation from a long-time benefactor and is the largest gift in the school's history.  This commitment includes full-tuition scholarship support for approximately 20 students (Vance Scholars) each year.  In spring of 2019, ACHS will break ground on a major renovation to include broadcast and recording studios, editing booths and suites, and master control rooms.  The program will also provide students an opportunity to participate in internships with local media partners.  The Vance Family and News Channel 4 are partners and enthusiastically support the program.  
We are asking our alumni to be a part of the program's success. Please share this information with your individual network.  If you know a prospective scholar, please encourage them to apply and list you as a reference. The submission deadline is January 7, 2019.  The application and admission criteria for the 2019-2020 school year can be found on the school's website.
 
For more information about the Jim Vance Media Program, please contact Dr. Cherie Ward, Director, at 202.529.0900, ext. 160 or cward@achsdc.org.  If you have questions about the application process, please contact the admissions office at 202.529.0900, ext. 135 or admissions@achsdc.org.

55th Reunion - October 2 or October 9, 2019

We surveyed everyone not quite a year ago about a 55th reunion and we got back some good feedback.  A small group met and started to flesh out a plan.  We don't have all the details, but  it's starting to take shape.  Based on the information below, we'll put out an email in mid 2019 asking for an update on who's going to attend.  While not an absolute commitment, we will use that count to find a place that can accommodate us and negotiate a price.  We'll then send this exact date, time, location and price out to all and ask that you send in a deposit .  Here's what's been decided.

  • Where?  At a DC area location - most likely in Montgomery County based on where people live who said they would attend. 
  • When? On Wednesday October 2 or 9,  2019
  • How much?  Affordable casual dining under $50/person without drinks.  Pay for your own drinks.  Possibly everyone orders their own dinner, but if attendance rises, we may have to preselect from a specific menu
  •  How long? No more than 4 hours, starting at 4-5 pm range
  •  We’ll find a place that will let us use a room for an extended period of time so that we can socialize. 
  • Stag or drag, the choice is yours, but we'd anticipate more people bringing a spouse, date, etc.
  • Since we're going to be reserving a room, the price of the meal is probably going to be a bit more than if you went by yourself, but we'll keep it affordable.
  • Gift to Carroll – no class gift, but we’d encourage you to consider it, but make donations directly.
  • Other events - we're keeping it simple to one event, but if others want to arrange something on your own, go for it.

Oh, and spread the word, not everyone is on this web site - We'll try to contact these people, but emails and addresses are generally obsolete.
