Attention all SHPies

I am writing from the Science Honors Program at Columbia University. The
Science Honors Program is an extracurricular Saturday morning program
for high school students who have demonstrated exceptional talent in
the fields of math and science. The program has been in existence since
1958, and enrolls high school students residing in the tri-state area.
We are currently attempting to contact alumni from our program in order
to learn about what they have accomplished in their current fields. Not
surprisingly, a large number of our students attend or have attended
the Great Neck public Schools. We would appreciate any assistance you can
offer in providing current addresses/contact information for our list
of alumni. We look forward to your reply. Thank you for your help,

- An anonymous graduate writes
I am a 1960 GNS grad. Went to NYU and Parsons School of Design. After
heading a successful Ad Agency in Washington,D.C., I have been writing for
10 years. (3 published books). My latest book (published anon) includes
those heady days at GNS. Remember how we were allowed to smoke in the
cafeteria?!!! My book is not only about GNS, but about my life as it
played out, about how I was a victim of an atrocious crime, and being
a witness for the prosecution...and how we lost. You can buy it from
LuLu.com: Title: GETTING OFF By Z. If you recognize me in the photos,
don't tell anyone!

- Sad news...
- It is with great sadness I have to inform you
of the passing of Roger Minionis on February 10th, 2005.
Over the years, "Mr. Min" was an inspiration to a huge
number of students. There are not many teachers I
can distinctly remember from 25 years ago - Roger will
always be one of those.
You can read the full obituary in
The Great Neck Record.

- Happy Ending: Spam about the Phillies you may have received
- About 2 years ago some of you recieved one or more rants
about sports in Philadelphia. It turns out they were from
an individual who harvested email addresses from this site and
hundreds of others. Eventually, he was caught
indicted (read it here) and prosecuted. Our webmaster
was one of the witnesses called by the US Attorney in the
trial. What goes around, comes around....
