Ned, Elder Class of 1962 and Terry, Elder Class of 1955, Lautenbach, have always felt strongly about the importance of a solid foundation in education. Both Terry and Ned held senior executive positions with IBM and were extremely successful in their field. They decided to create a scholarship in the Lautenbach name in 1999 and for it to honor their deceased brother, Thom, Elder class of ’55. All three of the Lautenbach brothers – Thom, Terry and Ned – felt that Elder High school was a significant factor in their academic and personal development and helped to change their lives. Terry passed away in 2004 and through memorial donations for Terry upon his death, and the ongoing of support from Ned, the scholarship continues to recognize and encourage academic excellence. Ned and his wife Cindy reside in Florida.
