February 2020

WMTH 60th YEAR REUNION - The first broadcast was in December 1959. Since then thousands of Maine alumni have learned the art and engineering of broadcasting radio and TV. On Saturday, April 4, 2020, all alumni are invited back to an open house at each school (East, West & South) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Following the open house from 2 p.m to 4:45 p.m will be a presentation featuring alumni celebrities who now work in the broadcast industry. This will take place at the Park Ridge Library 1st floor meeting room.

MW ALUMNI WITH MILITARY SERVICE - All MW alumni who have served or are now serving in the military please use the new Info Update page to fill in the new questions about your service. We have started new pages on our site to highlight all of our alumni who served our country in the military.

MW ALUMNA YOU NEED TO KNOW - A story of a MW Class '85 alumna has come into our hands and I believe you need to see this short talk given by her about her life changing events in 1994. Please take a few minutes to see and listen to Laura Larsen Lane. - Laura'sTalk

DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI NOMINATIONS - Remember to get your nominations in. December 31 is the last day for the nominations for the 2020 selection. The thirteenth annual and 2019 selection is Class '93 alumnus, Jason DeRusha.

MW ALUMNI DISTRIBUTION- A map has been created showing where known MW alumni are located around the US. It can be found on Alumni Info selection above.

LEGENDs FOR SALE - We discovered boxes of extra LEGENDs and started selling them. The proceeds of the sales go to the LEGEND office budget and the budget for the new Warrior Room (R-202). Visit the LEGEND SALE.

We have many alumni who've authored books. We have set up a new page under the Alumni Info/Authors, to be used to show their books and where to purchase them.

Buy your own Engraved Brick to place in the front of the school. Check out the Brick Project to see some of the samples. Go to the Alumni Info/Things to Buy to get an order form.

We are accepting Business Cards. If you would like to advertise your business send in a card and we'll get it on the site. Go to Alumni Info/Business Cards.

All reunion committees should check in with us, MWAA, for any assistance, a copy of the current class list, as well as posting info about the reunion.
