In June 1961, 550 ‘Hilltoppers’ graduated from the nationally-acclaimed A.B. Davis High School in Mt. Vernon, NY.  A. B. Davis is the alma mater of numerous esteemed graduates including comedian/actor Art Carney, Rock n Roll Hall of Famer Dick Clark, author of the beloved Charlotte’s Web, E.B. White and famed Brooklyn Dodger pitcher Ralph Branca.

 

Saturday, September 17, 2011, alumni of the 1961 class will gather for a 50TH Reunion Celebration at the Hilton Rye Town Hotel, 699 Westchester Avenue, Rye Brook, NY 10573 (914-939-6300). Festivities will begin at 7 p.m.  The theme for the long-awaited gathering is, ‘So, What Have You Been Doin’ These Last 50 Years?’

 

Excited alumni have affirmed their attendance from across the country and Mt. Vernon’s own backyard.  David Chu, U.S. Under Secretary of Defense (2001-2008) says, “I remember when our class entered Davis. The Dean (Grace Lewis) told us, ‘It’s easier to keep up than to catch up.’ I’ve tried to live by that all my life (not always successfully). I’m delighted I’ll be there (reunion).”

 

Other confirmed attendees include New York State Senator Ruth (Hassell) Thompson; California physician John Lynn who served as the class GO President and ‘Mr. Maroon & White’, local songstress Glenda Hospie Davenport and Floridian Al DiMaio, Professor of Political Science (emeritus) at Long Island University and the 1961 Senior Class President. DiMaio stated, “A. B. Davis was an energetic beehive of creativity that helped launch diverse students into many productive directions that have impacted the world.”

 

The 50th Reunion Executive Committee, composed of DiMaio, Michael Schlanger, Beryl Bochow Hay and Bill Troetel view this event as a once in a lifetime opportunity for old classmates to reconnect, share treasured memories and make plans for the future.
