Reunion with Arnold Palmer

Six graduates from 1953 have kept in touch for fifty-eight years.

Peggy Kracht Scalpello, Audrey DeMaria McGreevy, Shirley Ullom Filcik, Joan Everly Boyd, and Gwen Lewis Botti have met at least once or twice a year, with or without families. (Most of their spouses are also IUP grads: Jim Botti ’55 and the late Bob Scalpello ’53, Jules Filcik ’53, and Bill Boyd ’52).

This photo show five of them at their most recent get-together with their favorite celebrity, Arnold Palmer, at the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in Latrobe (Pa.) Airport in September 2009. Shirley Ort Henry was unable to attend this year’s outing.
