We were happy to read the wonderful news in the winter issue of Alfred Magazine about our classmate Lois Acker Blanchford. In the class of 1935 news, Lois and her husband, Henry Blanchford '35, are mentioned as having a very large family ... including great-grandchildren! Keeping up with all of them must surely keep them very active. We hadn't heard from Lois in a number of years, so we now know that she's been very busy. Lois, we'd love to hear from you again.

Published August 22, 2007 11:00 pm - Former guidance counselor and college administrator Cheryl Felt will begin her new role as Peru Middle School principal on Oct. 9. Peru hires new Middle School leader By STEPHEN BARTLETT Staff Writer PERU "" Cheryl Felt enjoys helping children find their way. It's the reason she left college administration to work as a guidance counselor. In early October, Felt begins her new role as principal of Peru Middle School. "We are fortunate to have in Cheryl Felt a ... Middle School principal bringing a proven record of success with program improvement and a strong work ethic," said Superintendent A. Paul Scott. Felt, hired at $77,500 yearly, replaces Chris Mazzella, who was called to service as Peru's new High School principal. A total of nine individuals applied for the Middle School principal position. Peru officials closely considered several people but ultimately decided Felt was the best match for the job. The School Board appointed her this week. She is slated to start her new position Oct. 9. "We look forward to working with Cheryl Felt in the years ahead," Scott said. Felt, 46, spent eight years in administration at St. Lawrence and Alfred universities. She worked in career planning and job development, helping college students. "I thought it would be nice to work with them when they are younger, to help them," Felt said of her decision to change careers. "They sometimes seemed not prepared." She attended graduate school while working full time at St. Lawrence University, earning a certification as a guidance counselor. Felt eventually ended up working at Morristown Central School, where she has been for eight years now. She has enjoyed interacting with students and connecting what they do in high school with their futures. "It has been very rewarding to be able to help children find their way. Lots of times, they will come to me with no idea of what they want to do, and you watch them develop and find that right connection." The toughest part of her job has been juggling her guidance tasks, which include the master schedule, with her role as the School District's chief information officer.
