By Staff | May 6, 2020

The Montgomery Area Alumni Association has announced that they are canceling this year’s Alumni Banquet that was scheduled for June to keep all of their members safe. However, they will honor the 25th reunion of the class of 1995 and the 50th reunion of the class of 1970 at next year’s banquet which will be held on Saturday, June 12, 2021.

The Alumni Association will award three scholarships in the amount of $1,500 and The Margaret Stolz Scholarship in the amount of $600 to members of the Class of 2020. Some of these scholarships were partially funded by a financial gift from the Class of 1970.

Any questions about the Montgomery Area Alumni Association can be directed to Leona Dewalt at Leonadewalt@yahoo.com

If you would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund, please make a check out to Montgomery Alumni and mail it to Karen Pauling, 217 Grandview Drive, Montgomery, PA 17752.
