FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES 2011 ACHIEVEMENT AWARD RECIPIENTS!
We also are delighted to announce the following recipients of the
Foundation's 2011 Achievement Awards:
LEE GLEISBERG MAY (78) -- Elizabeth has a very active, and
ongoing, record of extraordinary public service. Elizabeth's
road down this path began with her days as a helper at the James
Ryder Randall Summer Camp for Disabled Children, ran through her
service as a Major in the Air Force, and continues into the present.
from Surrattsville, Elizabeth earned a B.S. degree in psychology
from the University of Maryland and a Master of Aeronautical Science
Degree (with dual specializations in Operations and Management) from
Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Elizabeth's Air Force
career included these highlights: Operations Management Officer of
the 33rd Tactical Fighter Squadron, Shaw AFB, SC (where she earned
Outstanding Administrator of the Year for the base and for Tactical
Air Command); Operations Management Officer and 18th Tactical
Fighter Wing Emergency Actions Officer and Chief, Wing Contingency
Plans Branch, 12th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Kadena Air Base,
Japan (where she was selected the Kadena Air Base Military Volunteer
of the Year, was recognized in Airman Magazine as an "Unsung Hero,"
flew local area search and rescue training flights for the Strategic
Air Command, and served as president of the Intraservice Skydiving
Club). While at Kadena Air Base, Elizabeth devoted most of her
free time to building a summer camp for special needs children.
Camp Independence provided disabled children of the military
families assigned to the Okinawa a summer camp where they could swim
and do crafts just like their non-disabled friends.
After her service
at Kadena, Elizabeth was assigned as Base Disaster Preparedness
Officer (DPO) 4th Air Base Operability Squadron, Seymour Johnson
AFB, NC (where she also served as the Operations Officer and base
coordinator for the National Emergency Airborne Command Post and as
Environmental Programs Manager, Chief, Natural and Cultural
Resources, Environmental Impact Analysis Program Manager, and
Eastern Regional Company Grade Officer Council Executive Committee).
As the Regional Philanthropist at Johnson AFB, she developed an Air
Force-wide program for youth development that resulted in 3,000
hours of volunteer time in support of youth. Elizabeth also
served as Assistant Professor, and later Associate Professor, of
Aerospace Studies at the University of Florida. While in that
position, she served as the AS 100 Instructor, Executive Officer,
Education Officer and AFROTC Civil Air Patrol Squadron Commander.
Elizabeth then served as Chief of Field
Training, Headquarters AFROTC at Maxwell AFB. She was selected
to serve in a newly created position of Operations Officer to the
ROTC Commander building new programs and was then assigned as
Director of Training where she served the remainder of her ROTC
tour. As ROTC Director of Training, she managed over $10M and
programs for over 12,000 cadets at 143 universities, while
completing Air Command and Staff College through independent study.
In March 1999, Elizabeth assumed command
of 325FW, Det 1, in Pensacola where she was the regional leader in
promoting aerospace power. Her unit served 1,100 active duty
members assigned to 13 units across three bases. While
assigned, she developed many new programs, one of which recaptured
over 25,000 man-hours for the USAF in less than a year. The
new program resolved the long standing problem of lengthy delays
between graduation of navigators and their assignment to operational
units. While in Pensacola, Elizabeth was elected President of
Air Force Association Chapter 330 and earned the Medal of Merit for
In September 2000, Elizabeth was assigned
as Chief, Resources, Plans and Future Systems, HQ USAF at the
Pentagon. Her primary accomplishments there include
implementation of an AF-wide performance measurement system with
which she briefed the Secretary of the USAF and his senior staff and
a program to redesign the five year budget process. While assigned
to the Pentagon, she implemented the first Pentagon-assigned Company
Grade Officer Corps as well as became active in assisting the
homeless in DC.
In August 2001 Elizabeth retired from
active duty service and relocated to the Space Coast of Florida.
She then entered industry when she accepted a position with the
Research Triangle Institute's Center for Aerospace Technology in
Cocoa Beach, Florida. As a Research Aerospace Analyst she was
responsible for formulating Federal Aviation Administration
Regulations for the emerging commercial space Reusable Launch
Vehicle industry (the second generation shuttles of which about 15
different models are under design). In 2005 Elizabeth also
started her own investment corporation.
awards and decorations include two Meritorious Service Medals, three
Air Force Commendation Medals, one National Defense Service Medal,
three Air Force Outstanding Unit Award ribbons, two Longevity
ribbons, one Overseas Long Tour ribbon, and one Training ribbon.
Elizabeth also is a private pilot with 350 flying hours and a
master rated skydiver with over 2000 jumps. Her ten person
skydiving team placed 3rd in the nation in 2003. She was a
participant in the 1995 and 2005 Women's World Record Formation
Skydive, the latter involving a 151-woman formation that raised over
a half million dollars for breast cancer research! She is also
trained in firefighting tactics, a certified scuba diver, and an
experienced motorcycle rider.
As the mother of a young driver, Elizabeth
helped to organize a driving safety course presented by an Air Force
Sergeant who lost his daughter in a car accident at the age of 18.
The course has been credited with reducing teen driving deaths in
In 2010, Elizabeth made it her personal
mission to help service members disabled in the current wars.
Through her work, Elizabeth befriended Army Staff Sergeant Paul
“Russ” Marek and his family. SSG Marek was serving in Iraq
when his tank was destroyed by an IED. Three of his crew
members died in the explosion and SSG Marek lost his right leg and
right arm, his right ear and left thumb, and suffered brain injury
and severe burns over 20 percent of his body. Through a
national organization, Homes for Our Troops, Russ received a home
adapted to his specific physical impairments. After meeting
Russ and seeing his specially outfitted home, Elizabeth became
actively involved in fundraising events for the Space Coast Chapter
of Homes for Our Troops.
JOHN PREVITI (72) – John
is one of the country's most versatile, and renowned, bassists.
John leads his own jazz ensemble – which has appeared at such venues
as the Kennedy Center – and holds down the upright and electric bass
duties with an extraordinarily wide range of nationally- and
internationally-recognized individual musicians and groups.
(John currently is touring France, Belgium and Germany with Big Joe
Maher's group.) John's musical education really took off at
Surrattsville before he moved on to study jazz and classical bass at
Prince George's Community College. In 1976, thanks to a chance
encounter at a Clinton guitar shop, John met the late, great Danny
Gatton – considered by many as the ultimate "guitarists' guitarist"
– and Danny quickly asked John to join a new band he was forming.
Over the next 18 years, John played bass in Danny's band.
John also has
played and/or recorded with Paul Simon, Doc Cheatham, Charlie Byrd,
Joey DeFrancesco, Buddy Emmons, Herb Ellis, Les Paul, Emmylou
Harris, Arlen Roth, Johnny Winter, Buddy Charleton, Chick Hall, Jr.,
Dale Watson, Bill Kirchen, Billy Hancock, Big Joe Maher, Brooks
Tegler, Jim Stephanson, Joe Walsh, Greg Bissonette, and numerous
John also leads the Mingus-Monk Tribute
Big Band, which performs highly original arrangements of Mingus and
Monk classics, and performs regularly as part of Triplicity
featuring former Gatton drummer Timm Biery.
recording as a band leader, "Swinging Lullabies For My Rosetta,"
received rave reviews. John has won a number of Washington
Area Musicians' Association "Wammie" awards, including Musician of
the Year, Instrumentalist of the Year and Album of the Year.
CHAPPELL (75) -- Dave is one of the most sought-after and
respected musicians in the D.C. area. Like John, Dave has been
honored by his peers with a number of Wammies, including: 2005
- Musician of the Year, Best Rock Instrumentalist, Best Roots Rock
Instrumentalist, Best Children's Music Instrumentalist, Best Rock
Group/Duo (with Rhodes Tavern Troubadours); 2006 - Musician of the
Year, Best Roots Rock Instrumentalist; 2007 - Best Roots Rock
Instrumentalist; 2008 - Best Roots Rock Instrumentalist; 2009 - Best
Roots Rock Instrumentalist.
Dave has performed with Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame legends Jerry Lee Lewis, Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, and Percy
Sledge, as well as with Johnny Johnson and guitar wizard Danny
Dave can be seen playing frequently at
area clubs like the Birchmere, the Ram‘s Head, and Iota, performing
with DC-area favorites Jimmy Stephanson and the Blue Dogs, Patty
Reese, Mary Ann Redmond, and Cathy Ponton King. Dave also
performs from time to time with Bee Spears, Billy and Paul English,
and Mickey Raphael from The Willie Nelson Band.
Post appropriate calls Dave a "guitar whiz," and in an article about
the Washington Area Music Awards noted: "The awards came so fast
and furious for Chappell he didn't even know he'd won five until
somebody asked him if he was taking the rest of the year off to
celebrate his haul." (http://www.washingtonpost.

2011 ANNUAL CAMPAIGN KICKS-OFF EARLY. In the hope of
having the Foundation's most successful annual campaign to date, the
Foundation Board has decided to commence this year's campaign in
June, rather than the traditional September. We're hoping that
many of you who might have been inspired to contribute in the past,
but have not done so, might consider making a contribution to this
Foundation contributions are now easier
than ever, thanks to the ability to donate on-line, by credit card
or through PayPal. Just look for the "Donate" button at the
bottom right of the home page of the Foundation's web site at
(And of course contributions are welcome by mail, and a donor form
is pasted below.)
Remember: the Foundation has no
overhead, so every contribution dollar goes directly to supporting
the great kids at Surratts. And no contribution is too small
(or too large) to make a difference.
Thanks for considering participating in
this year's campaign!
4. FOUNDATION CONTRIBUTES TO
AFTER-PROM PARTY. The Foundation is proud to report
that it made a monetary contribution to an after-prom bowling party
for this year's seniors. The after-prom party was organized by
a group of Surrattsville parents, led by Kim Carrington, and
community members, and is part of a larger, nationwide effort
encouraged by MADD and others to provide safe, fun environments in
which high school students can "wind-down" after their proms.
Congratulations to this engaged group of organizers, and the
Surratts Class of 2011, on this inaugural event!
FOUNDATION MAKES GIFT TO 2011-2012 BAND. Thanks to
the generosity of Patti Williams Makielski (74), the Foundation has
made a significant gift to the 2011-2012 Surrattsville Band in
memory of Patti’s late sister, Kathleen Williams Sheppard (76).
Kathleen was an accomplished trumpeter in the Band during her days
at Surrattsville. (Additional information about Kathleen’s
extraordinary life are found in the In Memoriam, below.)
MORE ON MARY SURRATT. The renewed interest in the
Mary Surratt story generated by "The Conspirator" is showing up
-The Smithsonian has posted a very
provocative four minute video on its web site entitled "Was Mary
Surratt a Lincoln Conspirator?" This video, narrated by Laurie
Verge of the Surratt House and Museum, provides a great introduction
to the Mary Surratt story. (http://www.smithsonianmag.com/video/Was-Mary-Surratt-a-Lincoln-Conspirator.html)
-The April 18
edition of The New Yorker carried an Anthony Lane review of the film
– with an artist's sketch of Mary Surratt in the typical New Yorker
style – titled "Casualties of War." The review is quite
interesting, and notes that the film "traces a minor, absorbing
tributary of the vast Lincoln story, hitherto explored by
specialists alone." And the review tantalizes those of us with
Surrattsville roots with the following: "Whether Mary Surratt
will rate a mention, let alone a sequence, in Steven Spielberg's
forthcoming Lincoln movie remains to be seen." Perhaps we
Surratts watchers will get another big-screen dose of the Mary
Surratt story soon.
-We received this follow-up to the Mary
Surratt item in our last e-Notice from Audrey White: "Hi
Henry: You asked about comments on "The Conspirator." I
talk about the movie in my blog -- from a slightly different
perspective than I think you will hear from anybody else. Take
a look http://alllthingsworktogetherforgood.blogspot.com/2011/05/stories-from-surrattsville.html#comments.
I suspect there will be more about it in my blog as time goes (as
you can see by the comments following my blog post). "The
Team" referenced on the blog is the group over at http://www.projectnotguilty.com
(a non-DNA Innocence Project). Audrey"
-We received this
provocative email from Ronald "Duke" Coleman (53): "Henry:
From the 6th grade until I graduated in 1953 at least two Surratts
teachers assured me Mary Surratt was innocent and her execution was
a travesty. A few years ago I read a large portion of the
transcript from her trial. Certain elements of that transcript
convinced me at least 90% that Mary Surratt was complicit in the
conspiracy if for no more reason than her knowledge of it. Her
buggy ride to Clinton on April 14 is suspicious to say the least.
The parade of characters through her D.C. boarding house and her
loyalty to the South also raise doubts as to her innocence. The
reason I reserve 10% of my judgment is because I believe it is
possible she and some of the others involved, while in agreement
with Booth to kidnap the president might not have been aware of the
expanded plan to murder him and others.
Much of the
dialog in the movie is from the transcript that I read. But I read
only words on paper. When spoken by actors on screen of course
they can take on a whole new life. As portrayed in the movie the
military trial was about as one-sided as it gets. And the
intervention of Andrew Johnson which hastened and allowed the
hanging of Mary Surratt was just plain criminal. And Johnson's
involvement was not invented by the screenwriters. It is a matter of
-And we received this
pronunciation-related mail from Steve Profilet (71): "Henry:
Over the years I have met patients with the last name, "Surratt."
Some pronounce it like we are used to hearing it. Others correct me
and say it is pronounced "Sir-rott." I saw "The Conspirator,"
and noticed the pronunciation "Sir-rott". There was no deviation in
the movie. That was probably how the actors were directed to say the
name. Hornetly yours, Steve"
7. CLASS OF 71 PLANS
SECOND "40" YEAR REUNION. Thanks to Darlene Monaco (71),
the Class of 71 is planning a second, "real" 40 year reunion for
Saturday evening June 25, 2011. (This supplements the Class's
"official" 40 year reunion held last June at Ft. Belvoir.)
This very casual event will be held starting at 6 p.m. at Darlene's
house near Annapolis. Please email Darlene at
email@example.com if you plan
to attend, or for more information.
8. MORE HIGH-SPEED MEMORIES.
We received these memories from Leroy Stirewalt (64) in response to
the item in the last e-Notice about Aquasco Speedway: "Hello
Henry: Oh, wow. I just had to respond to the article about
Aquasco Speedway. That place was my "go to place" every Sunday
from 1967 to 1970. I raced two cars there: a K-stock 1963
Plymouth slant 6, and an A-stock 1969 VW bug (won more times with
the VW). My fondest memories were of the bright green VW
beetle, with the small block Chevy engine: Leroy's Toy (B-Altered).
I don't think the front wheels ever touched the ground from start to
finish. Man that place would really get my heart pumping. Not to
mention all the girls checking out the cars (and drivers?). My dad
talked me into going to a drag strip after I got my first speeding
ticket. Said "you might as well do that someplace safe and stay out
of trouble." He was right once again. Wow, so sad it is no longer
there. I'm still a race fan though. I go to Capital Raceway as often
as possible. I've raced another VW bug there. Been wanting to
take my motorcycle there and see what it can do in a quarter mile.
Getting kind of old now though and I'm sure I wouldn't do the bike
9. SEEKING 64 BOOMERANG.
Nancy Young (54) is looking for a copy of a 1954 Boomerang.
Please contact Nancy at
if you have any information that might be helpful.
DEPARTING REPORT FROM AFGHANISTAN. We received this
interesting report from Rix Mills (62): "Henry: I left
Kabul, Afghanistan on the 4th of April having completed three years
of service and am now back home in Puerto Montt, Chile. The
work in Kabul was interesting and challenging as is everything in
Afghanistan. I am glad to report that there are a lot of
dedicated and hard working U.S. citizens, along with an army of
other people from all over the world, doing their best to improve
the security situation in the country and promote the development of
viable industries and businesses to improve the economy.
Unfortunately, we have lost too many of our own in this monumental
effort. I wish that I could say that there is some end in
sight but that is no where near the case at this time.
Regardless, my work with the Afghanistan National Police was
rewarding and I hope that in some way I was able to advance them
towards a better relationship with their own populace which has been
sorely lacking in the past. To be sure, they have a long ways
to go to even begin to approach what a police force should be doing
to establish good order in the country. I am not sure if I
will return to Afghanistan but am confident that life still has many
challenges for me there or wherever destiny calls. I had to
reflect when I went through Immigration in Atlanta a couple of weeks
ago when the agent asked me: "What is your destination"? If
I only knew that! Rix"
11. 61 BOOMERANG DONATED FOR
FOUNDATION "AUCTION". Susan Loweth Melton (63) kindly
donated her "gently used" 61 Boomerang to the Foundation as a
fund-raising object. Unlike our new bulk copies of yearbooks
from certain years (see below), because this Boomerang is a truly
priceless treasure from an older year – the first in the "New
School" building – we are auctioning it off to the highest bidder.
Please send me an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd
like to put in a bid on this extraordinary piece of SHS history.
[Ed Note: Susan is hoping that her
donation might inspire others to donate to the Foundation their
under-used freshman/sophomore/junior yearbooks for similar fund
12. JUNE EVENT FOR THE

that it would be great if others of our readers sent in internship
and job opportunities like those paid Navy internships submitted
last month by the aforesaid Neal Dawson (73). If you know of
any opportunities that might be of interest to members of the
Surrattsville community, please send me an email at
14. DETAILS ON JUNE 25
SURRATTSVILLE - BLUE CRABS EVENT. We received this
additional detail about the June 25 Surrattsville – Blue Crabs event

16. "SURRATTSVILLE ALUMNI"
WINDOW STICKERS AVAILABLE. Pat Becker Oles (71) also
kindly handles the Foundation's "Surrattsville Alumni" window
stickers project. Pat notes that the stickers are not the
"static cling type," that stick to the inside of a window.
Instead, they are the "stick to the outside type," that can stick on
a window or bumper, and use "repositional adhesive" (meaning no
sticky residue). Information about purchasing the stickers can
be found on the web site at surrattsville.org.

WILLIAMS SHEPPARD (76) died last year on June 24, 2010 of
kidney cancer. Kathy’s sister, Patti Williams Makielski (74)
shared these thoughts: “My sister Kathy was very kind, loving
and generous in spirit and was always available for her family and
friends. She had lived a full life devoted to her husband George
(Class of 74), and her two sons Ryan and Justin. They were her
greatest joy and proudest accomplishment. Fortunately she lived long
enough to know that after college they both succeeded in their
respective dreams and goals, Ryan is currently working with a
financial firm in Northern Virginia and Justin began his career in
the Army and was just recently accepted to Ranger school. You
may recall that Kathy was a very active trumpet player in the
Surrattsville marching band in 1974-1976, where she met George who
is still playing the drums with his usual gusto. He is
currently touring with Jimmy Thackery & the Drivers.
After high school Kathy was trained initially as an XRay technician
and then later became the officer manager of a medical practice. Her
diagnosis last March was very sudden, but she battled very bravely
for three months." If anyone has recollections they would like to
share, Patti she can be emailed at
LINDA WINE SMITH (68)
died on Sunday, April 24 after a long battle with MS. She was
living in Lexington Park, MD with her husband of 43 years, Travis
Smith, had two sons, Trent and Brian, and five grandsons whom she
adored. Linda also is survived by her sister, Cynthia Wine
