On Sunday, the Lapeer Community Schools, in cooperation with the Lapeer High School Alumni Association, hosted the sixth annual Distinguished Alumni Hall of Honor Ceremony at Lapeer East.
The event honored four graduates of the Lapeer Community Schools deemed worthy of special recognition for positive leadership and outstanding achievement, especially in the realm of community service.
This year’s class of honorees:
- Doris Wenger, LHS class of 1934
- Michael Dionise, LHS class of 1947
- Russell Bush, LHS class of 1970
- Gary Oyster, LHS class of 1971
Lapeer Community Schools superintendent Matt Wandrie said the annual event embodies what the district is all about.
“There’s pride in ownership, and each of these honorees devoted a great deal of time and energy into making their community better,” he said. “As a district, we are very fortunate to have so many people who give more than they take, people who keep the Lapeer spirit alive and well.”
There are 27 members of the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Honor. Honorees are selected by a committee from a pool of submitted nominees. For a list of all the honorees, visit Lapeerschools.org on the internet.
