Carolyn Domenig Latanision Wins Art Award

Carolyn Domenig Latanision '61 won the Mijello Mission Gold Award in the National Watercolor Society’s 96th International Exhibition held at the NWS Gallery in San Pedro, California. The Gold Award presents the winner with a $4000 prize. 

The award winning  painting is RIVETING, BETHLEHEM STEEL.  Carolyn has  done several solo exhibits of this work  in New England where she lives, most recently one requested by New England Biolabs.  (People always seem interested, which is curious to me, and the work has been purchased mostly by collectors.)

Carolyn offered her reason for this painting and the others in her series which is still in progress. "Growing up on the South Side of Bethlehem, I thought I could never move far enough away from the dirt, the noise, and the smells.  But when I heard that the plant was closing for good, my first emotional reaction was to memorialize this place that had so dominated our lives.  Over several years, driving down from Massachusetts, I explored and photographed the abandoned foundries and derelict machine shops where my father, grandfather and  great-grandfather had worked — and which ultimately claimed their lives. My series is based on all these photographs." 


David Waltz '61, LHS Distinguished Alumnus

David L. Waltz (1943-2012), a fellow member of the Class of 1961, was named  a Liberty High School Distinguished Alumnus in the Fall of 2014. Dave, a pioneer in Computer Science,  made contributions that provided the basis for the internet search engines of today. Tom Haupert, our classmate and close friend of Dave,  wrote the letter of nomination on behalf of a committee of class members  to Principal Harrison Bailey nominating Dave for this honor.  Please click here to read the entire nominatiion letter.

Dave, unfortunately died in March, 2012. Because of his prominence and his many contributions to the world of computer science,  David's obituary appeared in the New York Times on March 23, 2012. Please click here to read the entire text of the obituary.

The Class of 1961 is certainly proud of David's many accomplishments and will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers.
