Carolyn Grambo Kean '86 of Akron, Ohio, recently retired as the community CEO of the American Red Cross Blood Services after 36 years of service.



Following the illness and death of her husband, Lester, Elizabeth Snow Thompson ’60 of Standish, Maine, returned to Saint Joseph’s College as a French teacher, an opportunity for which she is very grateful.  

The College offers its condolences to the family of Bruce Lerch ’95 of Boston, Massachusetts. Bruce passed away on Sunday, December 6, 2015, after a brief battle with cancer.

General Guidelines

While we do our best to print all Class Notes as written, we may need to edit due to space limitations, appropriateness of language and content, or repetition of content. 

Class Notes will be accepted in the following manner:

  • If the alumnus/alumna in the note notifies the College of the news (except condolences, which may come from the alum’s family)
  • If the College receives electronic notifications of the event from a news article or bulletin from another publication/public relations office
  • If the announcement is publicly published and references the alumnus/alumna by name and association with the College
