East High Class of '62 classmates,
We are delighted to announce that the first recipient of the East High School Class of 1962 scholarship is Keeleigh Malchow, an East High senior who will enter the University of Northern Iowa in the fall. Keeleigh was selected by a faculty committee and will receive our first $1000 scholarship award.
Keeleigh exemplifies the type of student we had hoped to assist, having demonstrated integrity, character, good citizenship, and a fine scholastic record.
She is in the National Honor Society and has been active in cheerleading, soccer, show choir, student council, and numerous other activities.
Of particular note is Keeleigh’s intention to study speech pathology in order to help families communicate with loved ones who have speech challenges. She has been inspired by her grandmother, who has courageously battled Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) for 14 years and, as a result, has great difficulty speaking. On Keeleigh’s application, she wrote: “While spending time with my grandmother, I have learned many life lessons. Through all of her challenges, she is able to stay positive and has always believed that life is worth fighting for.”
Keeleigh is clearly an outstanding student and citizen, and our class can be proud that she is our first scholarship recipient. We wish you success in your college education and career, Keeleigh!
An amazing postscript:
As we read the essay Keeleigh wrote as part of her application, some of our reunion committee members began to think about the similarity between Keeleigh’s description of her grandmother and our own classmate, Mary Lefler Krier. A couple of committee members stayed in touch with Mary since graduation and know that she, too, has courageously battled ALS for many years. After a little bit of “connecting the dots”, we discovered a remarkable circumstance: the grandmother Keeleigh is talking about in her essay is Mary, our classmate! Yes ….. it’s really hard to believe, but in an amazing and serendipitous coincidence, the first Class of ’62 scholarship was awarded to a student who is part of our extended “family”! Without question, Mary’s courage and example are inspiring not only to Keeleigh, but to all of us, as well.
We also learned that Mary’s husband Dennis is battling cancer. We know that all the class will want to keep Mary and Dennis and their family in our thoughts and prayers, even as they celebrate Keeleigh’s graduation.
We invite you to post a message to Mary on the Message Forum on this website, send her a private message, or find her on Facebook. If you go to Mary’s profile page on the website, you will see that her second child is Dee Dee, who is Keeleigh’s mother.

106 Stores with Senior Discounts
Gone are the days of your grandmother’s “early bird special” at the local diner. As baby boomers are reaching retirement age, hundreds of retailers are featuring new and improved discounts exclusively for the 60 and older crowd. BradsDeals.com has prepared a list of senior savings that will help you keep more cash in your pocket.
