The Tahawus Legacy Education Fund
ATTENTION Long Lake Central School graduates:
The Tahawus Legacy Education Fund is awarding educational scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students who had relatives who lived and/or worked in the village of Tahawus, New York sometime during the period of 1941-1963. Examples of such relatives may include, but are not limited to, parent, grandparent, and great-grandparent.
The funds must be used toward expenses related to full-time college or university enrollment during the second year of study or beyond. Applications can be found at the Tahawus Legacy Education Fund's website, linked below, as well as further details on application details.
Please note, completed applications will be accepted only if they are sent through the mail to the address below and are postmarked anytime from May 15 to June 15. A successful applicant must have completed at least one year of full-time college work at an accredited institution and have earned at least a 2.75 overall GPA.
According to their website, established in 2014, the ECHS Tahawus Legacy Education Fund is named for Tahawus, New York, an Adirondack mining village that thrived from the early 1940s until 1963 when the National Lead Co. moved the village to Newcomb in order to access additional titanium found on its site. Eventually the mining enterprise was totally closed.
The Tahawus Fund memorializes the men and women who lived in Tahawus, worked hard at their jobs, and also engendered a town spirit dedicated to universal respect, community service, mountain sportsmanship, and educational opportunity. As the beneficiaries of those efforts, many of the former children of Tahawus contributed their stories to Leonard Gereau’s Tahawus Memories 1941-1963, and Mr. Gereau, himself a former resident, founded and generously supported the Tahawus Legacy Education Fund with profits from his book. Additional donations continue to be welcome and will be directly applied to funding future awards.

LLCS Student at the North Country High School Juried Art Exhibition
LLCS is excited to share that several of our students had work accepted into the North Country High School Juried Art Exhibition held at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. These students include, Maria Black, Lillian Dechene, Leah Foster, Madelyn Penrose, and Emily Porter.
We are also thrilled to share that for the second year in a row, Emily Porter, a junior at LLCS, took home the overall top prize! This year she claimed the overall top honor for her charcoal drawing titled "The Light Above." A third place award went to Lillian Dechene, a freshman at LLCS, in the 7-9th grade category for her foreshortened self-portrait done in charcoal.
LLCS art students and their teacher Ms. Gannon recently took a field trip to the LPCA to see the show.
Twelve schools from across the North Country participated in this annual event. The show started on March 13 and runs until April 13 at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

PARP Rainforest Theme Elementary Reading Tree
The 2nd Annual Students vs. Faculty/Staff Reading Challenge tallies are in... and for the second year in a row...THE STUDENTS WIN!
Over the course of the month, the reigning champs turned in an impressive 9,404 pages read, which means that for the month of March students in grades 7-12 read that many pages (yes, that says 9,404 pages, your eyes are not playing tricks on you!) In order to have their pages approved, they had to complete an interview and have their work signed off by the opposing team, so all pages read by both teams were vetted.
The Faculty/Staff team turned in 7,275 pages, which they thought was going to be enough, but with the students turning in 3,446 pages on the last day, they could not fend off those voracious (and strategic) readers!
As a consequence, at a date to be determined, the Faculty/Staff team will come to school dressed as an animal you might find in the rainforest, which was decided by the students and goes along with this year's PARP (Parents as Reading Partners) theme of Rainforest Reading.
In the attached photo, from left, Katarina O'Brien-Brown, Chandler O'Brien-Brown, Olivia Penrose, Riley Strader, and McKenzie Munger celebrate their team's victory, while Mrs. Curtin grapples with her team's loss.
Great job to everyone! LLCS sure loves to read, and sure knows how to make it fun!
