Special Recognition for a Very Special Person
Marilyn Laughlin (formerly Sister James Marguerite, O.P.) was one of our teachers at St. Ambrose High, teaching English
Marilyn Laughlin (formerly Sister James Marguerite, O.P.) was one of our teachers at St. Ambrose High, teaching English and Religion. She has attended several of our annual Class of '69 dinners. The reunion committee had planned to make her the guest of honor at our 50-year reunion and to present her with a certificate of appreciation in recognition of her lifetime of service to education, including not only her years at St. Ambrose but at several other schools and at all levels from elementary to university. Unfortunately, she was not able to attend the reunion due to illness. On July 31st, Doug and Linda Delaney travelled to Marilyn's home in Haslett, MI, near Lansing, to present her with the certificate. The inscription reads: "St, Ambrose High School of Detroit and Grosse Pointe, Michigan, The Class of 1969, hereby presents this Certificate of Appreciaton to Marilyn Ruth Laughlin in grateful recognition of her lifelong dedication to Education. Given this 20th Day of July, 2019. John D. Delaney, President; William R. Nolan, Vice-President, Kathleen J. Fallucca, Secretary; Richard E Gosselin, Treasurer". Congratulations, Marilyn! Yours is truly a well-deserved honor.
