Hawk Family Mourns Passing of Jim Disbennett

The Hawk family mourns the passing of longtime Social Science Teacher Jim Disbennett, who passed away last week due to complications related to leukemia. A memorial service will be held on Monday, November 12th at 6:00 p.m. in the EDHS gym; all are welcome to attend. EDHS spirit attire is encouraged.

In lieu of flowers, the Disbennett family has requested that donations be made to a legacy scholarship that will be established to honor Mr. Disbennett's impact on a generation of students. Details may be obtained by contacting Sunshine Cavalluzzi at scavalluzzi@pylusd.org.

A video tribute to Mr. Disbennett is being prepared by the award-winning EDHS Advanced Broadcasting team. They would LOVE to include some of your comments. Please help them out and film your thoughts and/or memories with your smartphone or webcam and send them to Mark Switzer (mswitzer@pylusd.org) or post them on the Hawk Talk Facebook page ( (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hawk-Talk/102389383157496 )
