2.  FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES 2011 ACHIEVEMENT AWARD RECIPIENTS!  We also are delighted to announce the following recipients of the Foundation's 2011 Achievement Awards:
ELIZABETH 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.
After graduating 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 her contributions.
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.
Her military 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 Elizabeth's community.
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 others.
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.
John's first 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.
DAVE 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 Gatton.

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.

The Washington 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.  com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/02/20/AR2006022001603.html)
Congratulations to these members of the Surrattsville community on their absolutely extraordinary achievements!

3.  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 year's campaign.
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!
5.  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.)
6.  MORE ON MARY SURRATT.  The renewed interest in the Mary Surratt story generated by "The Conspirator" is showing up everywhere.
-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.  (
-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  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 (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 history.   Duke"
-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 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 justice.
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.
10.  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 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 raisers.]

12.  JUNE EVENT FOR THE CLASSES OF 69, 68, 70, 71 AND MORE.  Vince Antonioli (69) is hosting a Surrattsville reunion and "69ers turn 60" yard party at his farm at 23408 Neck Road, Aquasco, MD 20608 on Saturday, June 25, 2011 starting at 1:00 p.m. and running "until the last guest departs, or falls asleep on the couch."  The organizers report:  "Tents, tables, chairs provided.  Bring your iPods to contribute music to the iPod-compatible sound system.  Food provided: pork barbecue, beef brisket, veggie burgers, hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, fixings, water, soft drinks and birthday cake!  Please bring other beverages of your choice and a side dish to share.  Casual, picnic attire.  Please RSVP to (Vince Antonioli),  (Debbie Mahler/Kelley), or  (Melissa Gilcrest.)  We would love to enjoy this day with our friends!"

13.  EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR THOSE IN THE SURRATTSVILLE COMMUNITY.  In response to an item in our last e-Notice, Patti Dean pointed out 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 from Evan Vutsinas (76):  "For ALL SHS Alumni - You are cordially invited to attend the Annual Surrattsville HS Night at the Ballpark on Saturday, June 25th!  Once again we'll be in Waldorf at the home of the Southern MD Blue Crabs.  Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with the first pitch at 6:35 p.m.  Your $20.00 fee covers parking, entry to the left field party area and a two-hour Texas Roadhouse Buffet including soft drinks.  Order your tickets at:  The secret code is SHS.   It is also Salute to Veterans Night so plan to stay around for the fireworks after the game.  Let's fill the outfield with Hornets of all ages!  Please pass the word to ALL SHS alumni even if you don't plan to attend!  Thanks!"
(In addition, the Class of 76 is planning some Class-specific events for Friday June 24 and Saturday June 25, so Class of 76 members should check out the Class of 76 Group on Facebook for more information about those events.)
15.  ALL CLASSES/FACULTY/STAFF DIRECTORIES AVAILABLE.  Thanks to the herculean work of Pat Becker Oles (71), the Foundation's 2000 Alumni/Faculty/Staff Directory has been updated for 2010, and now includes fascinating "what I'm up to" paragraphs from those who submitted directory information.  If you would like a copy of the Directory, send a $20 check payable to the Foundation to:  Henry Smith, One W. Pennsylvania Avenue, Suite 950, Towson, MD 21204.
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
17.  CLASS OF 2001 PLANS REUNION.  The Class of 2001 is beginning work on planning for its ten year reunion, to be held on Saturday June 4 from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m., at a location to be determined.  Please contact Jacquelyn Towns at or Courtney Graham at if you have any contact info on members of the Class of 2001 or if you would like further information.  The Class also has a Facebook page called “The Official c/o 2001 Reunion Page,” which contains photos and information to date.

KATHLEEN 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 Parks (69).
