$1954 Donated to Mepham Library In 2017
THIS PAST JUNE, Lance Blackshaw presented our latest
Class of 1954 Library Fund donation to Mepham Principal Michael
Spearheaded by Bob "Vince"
Ferrigno in 2015, the Mepham High School Class of 1954 Library
Memorial Fund was established "to honor our fellow classmates
and the many individuals in the Mepham community who have so
positively impacted our lives."
The funds will be utilized for
books and other equipment that the staff feels are needed, in
much the same manner as our previous donations of $1954 and $5400.
Last year, the library used our grant towards:
- Six iPad Airs. Each iPad is
engraved, "Gifted to Mepham High School by the Class of
- Six MacLocks, rotating and tilting
iPad enclosures, along with six stools for added student seating
- Creation of an IPad Reference
- "MakerSpace," a DIY
creation area for students to gather, build, invent and learn."
to all our donors
who have so generously donated
to the library fund!
This will be a continuing annual
award, and if you wish to contribute, contact Bob Ferrigno at
