Milne Alumni January Newsletter

Dear Milne Alumni and Supporters,

In this issue:

* Dr. Theodore H. Fossieck Scholarship
* Good News?
* Sad News


As mentioned in a recent email to all Milne Alumni...

If you, as a Milne School alumnus or alumna, have a direct descendant attending or planning to attend the University at Albany as an undergraduate for the upcoming school year, please have him or her watch for and complete the application for the Dr. Theodore H. Fossieck Scholarship, which will soon be available at Choose "Albany Foundation Endowed Scholarships," "Name and Description Search," and insert "Fossieck" (without the quotation marks). Be sure to read all instructions!

If they have changed any of the links, I hope that it will be obvious what you must do. Please direct all questions to the Student Service Center by calling the main phone number at 518-442-3202 and asking for the Scholarship Coordinator.

If the "Albany Foundation Endowed Scholarships" link is not yet active, try again in a few days. I've been told this is a "first-come, first-served" scholarship, so act quickly.


Please continue to update me with "Good News": retirements, marriages, grandchildren, reunions (major or "mini"), successes, etc. "Sad News" happens on its own; I need YOU to provide good news...or we won't have any!

The Class of '61 is planning its 50th-year reunion for mid-July 2011. Classmates, I hope to see you there!


Please note that I rely upon the Albany Times Union and input from other alumni for this information, so if you become aware of someone who has passed away, please let me know. If a name is underlined, it represents a link to the obituary. Many obituaries are available free for a limited time only.
