C L A S S NOT E S

1951

A Lycoming Legacy began with

Matthew Cendoma ’51

, and

continued with his children,

including daughter,

Cynthia

Cendoma ’69

; son,

Matthew

Cendoma ’75

and daughter,

Patricia (Cendoma) Whelan ’89

,

who married John Whelan, Ph.D.,

professor of philosophy at

Lycoming. Sarah and Daniel also

attended Lycoming. Children

of Patricia and John include

Prudence Cendoma ’96

and

Gabriel Cendoma ’97

.

1961

Dr. Eli Stavisky

was honored

by the Scranton District

Dental Society for his years

of dedication and service to

the field of dentistry. After

graduating from Lycoming, he

attended Temple University

School of Dentistry, New York

University and served in the

U.S. Air Force as a captain. He

received numerous awards and

distinctions through the years,

held several positions in the field

of dentistry and medicine and

personally mentored 60 pre-

dental students.

1966

William Deitch

volunteered for

two weeks to teach English in

the Andean town of Guaranda,

Ecuador, this summer. The trip

was organized by the non-profit

organization “Language for the

Nations” and more than 300

students took advantage of the

opportunity.

1968

Philip Beckley

had the good

fortune to attend the National

Republican Convention in

Cleveland, Ohio, as an alternate

delegate.

It was his

first national

political

convention and

unlike anything

he had ever

done. A unique

experience. Philip believes

he has now attended the two

seminal events of his time:

The Woodstock Rock Festival

in 1969 and the Republican

National Convention in 2016.

Between 1969 and 2016 he was

just kind of hanging around.

1972

Kathleen (Dixon) Donnelly,

Ph.D.

, has adapted her personal

walking tour of the Bloomsbury

area of London into a GPS audio

walk, “Such Friends”: Virginia

Woolf and the Bloomsbury

Group. Published on the

innovative audio walking tour

app, VoiceMap, it is available to

download from iTunes, Google

Play and their own site, www.

VoiceMap.me

. She has given

presentations about early

20th century writers’ salons at

lifelong learning programs in

the United States, as well as in

the United Kingdom, where she

currently lives, and led tours of

the areas where they gathered

— the west of Ireland, Paris’ Left

Bank and Bloomsbury.
