President’s Message (January 23, 2015)

Happy New Year to all East Tech Alumni, Family and Friends,

2015 is off and running!!!


The “Mighty Scarabs” New & Improved Production is coming to the Karamu House!   It is such an honor to announce, this play was written by our very own alum, Cornell Calhoun III. Class of 1967'. Some of you may have attended a mini production of the Mighty Scarabs in 2012, now it is revised, new and improved for your viewing.  

The East Tech alumni will be hosting a scholarship benefit viewing of the play on March 3rd, 4th and 5th of 2015.  These dates are for alumni and friends to view the play before it is opened to the public, what a privilege!!!  Tickets are $30 and going fast, so please contact any of the phone numbers  below to purchase your ticket.  The play will run until March 29th at a higher cost.  So get your tickets now at a reduced rate.  Classes you may want to make sure that your classmates purchase tickets on the same night so that you all could attend together, that would be awesome. 

The Alumni Association will also host a Meet & Greet reception (appetizers) prior to each of the performance shows (5:30 to 7:30 pm).  Opportunities to purchase scarab wear will be available during the receptions.  We are asking class committees, if you have an upcoming fundraiser and would like to host one of the preview nights to please give us a call and this could be arranged for you.

This play is a must see! Let us rock Cleveland’s Karamu House with Scarab pride on March 3rd, 4th and 5th!!! See the attached flyer

Scholarship Fund Update:  Since 2006, The East Tech Alumni has raised more than $95,000 in scholarships for the current scholars of East Tech High School.  Wow, Scarabs are serious in their giving!  Sure, the amount of the scholarships are great but even greater are the opportunities that you helped to create for our ET scholars.  A platform to experience higher learning in new environments, to grow and to become.......Go Scarabs!


Thanks to all of you “Mighty Scarabs”, family and friends!!!

A special thanks to alum, Cornell Calhoun III. and Cosandra Wheeler of the Karamu House for this opportunity to bring alumni and the East Tech/Central community together for the good of East Tech High School.
