Trojan Alumni Varsity Club Newsletter                                              April 2021


I hope all is well with everyone while we are still dealing with the pandemic.

The PTAVC executive board met on April 21 and made a few decisions I want to share with everyone.

The board decided that at this time we will not resume general membership meetings.  We will revisit this issue at our next board meeting in July. 

The golf tournament has been cancelled for 2021 as well.  Iron Lakes has been very understanding and accommodating and we hope to continue our relationship with them when we begin to meet again.

Rick Trumbauer has several bricks to be placed in the monument on the school campus and he will do so at the conclusion of the school year.

The scholarship applications were available to senior athletes through the guidance office.  Eric Roberts was very helpful in making those available to the students.  Unfortunately, we had only 6 applicants this year – 4 male and 2 females.  Mr. Roberts told us that he saw a decrease in all scholarship applicants this year and feels it is due to the fact that the students were virtual and not in the building most of the year.  He is hoping it will rebound next year.  The club’s selection committee is reviewing the applications and will decide on recipients that will be announced at the award ceremony May 26. 

We received a thank you note from Kayla Kinney.  She was last year’s female scholarship recipient.  She was very grateful for being selected as our recipient.  She is studying exercise science at Bloomsburg University.  She states she wants to make Parkland Varsity Club proud!

Lucy and Dale Ritter’s son Attorney David Ritter is a candidate for Judge of Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas.  David is a 1989 graduate of Parkland High School.  His parents are both graduates of the Class of 1956 at PHS and are members of the PTAVC.  If you are a resident of Lehigh County we hope you will get out to vote in the primary election on May 18th and show him your support.

Thank you to the board members for helping to keep the club business moving forward during this last year.  After the high school award ceremony is held, we will announce the scholarship recipients and any additional club news.


Continue to be safe until we can meet again.
