Jerome Bess wrote, “I started writing this note on Monday, December 7, 2015 and realized it was 74 years ago I was in my dorm room listening to the radio when the music stopped and the announcer blasted out ‘the Japanese are bombing Pearl Harbor – a surprise attack!’ There and then the world changed forever. This year my donation to Newark Academy is in memory of all NA students from the ’30s and ’40s who served during WWII and those who gave the ultimate sacriﬁce never to be forgotten.”

I SPRING 2016
Edward L. Levitt email@example.com Neal Schlendorf, Gerald Seid, Ed Levitt, Jack Olcott, Anton DePaul, Gerd Keuffel and John Mahon celebrated their 60th Reunion with their wives at a cocktail party before a special alumni dinner at the “new” (for them) Newark Academy. The topic of conversation focused on their exceptional preparation for college from Messrs. Nelke, Schoff and Huddle, and Mrs. Lynham among others. The training they received on the playing ﬁelds of the First Street school from Coaches Stallings, Monica and DeSerio still resonates with them today. The group feels lucky to hold these fond memories from a unique and remarkable faculty and they are looking forward to celebrating their 70th!
