From Mr. Bill Lund:
We are in the middle of a fund raising drive to raise $100,000 to put computers into the hands of each I-S HS Student. We are about half way there but time is running out, as a big portion of the funds that have been promised will go away if we can not get the project up and started by the start of school next fall. Anything that you alumns could contribute would be much appreciated. Any donations can be sent to the High School care of the One-on-One computer committee.
Any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes I am still here after 39 years
Deb (Lease) Becker Galewski, Class of 1970, returned to the area where she grew up after living in various areas in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Arizona. She worked as a registered occupational therapist until chronic pain and fatigue made even part time work impractical. She used her work experience to stay as functional as possible. On a voluntary basis she has shared her methods through local, state, and national media coverage. Her most recent focus: Remodeling homes for "aging in place." She and her husband have two grown daughters.
Mike Bestul, class of '72, is the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at John Carroll University in Cleveland, OH where he provides executive management direction of all technology initiatives and services at the university. John Carroll University consistently ranks high in US News & World Report's "America's Best Colleges", and is a highly selective Jesuit institution of higher learning. Since graduation from I-S High School in 1972, Mike earned a B.S. degree in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, and a M.S. degree in Human Relations & Business from Amberton University. Prior to coming to John Carroll University in December 2008, Mike served as the Vice President & CIO of Fairmont State University in WV (2005-2008), the Executive Director of the Florida Community College Software Consortium in Fort Lauderdale, FL (2003-2005), the Chief Information Officer of University of Wisconsin - Learning Innovations (2000-2003), and the Information Technology Director at the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (1996-2000). Some of you may remember that Mike played guitar with a band called HeartStrings in the 70s. Despite his many professional accomplishments in higher education and technology management (which pay the bills), Mike still very much would rather be known as a super lead guitarist than a hot-shot CIO. Some things never change, but the hair is shorter now.mpleted his HSED and is looking forward to the birth of his first child.
