LAHS places Second in MESA National Finals
Dear Relatives and Friends: As you may know, I’ve been coaching Los Angeles Senior High School (my alma mater) students in their various competitions, most recently the MESA USA National Engineering Design Competition. This year the challenge was to design and build a transradial (attaches midway between wrist and elbow) prosthetic arm to perform three tasks. The parts could not cost more than $40. In addition they had to write a technical paper, make a desktop display, and deliver an oral presentation, all of which, including the performance tasks, were scored.
Nearly 50 Years Under a School's Spell
Violin teacher, Mickey Fruchter a Roman (Class of '57), has been teaching at the Neighborhood Music School in Boyle Heights since he was 25, drawn to it by the love of his students. 'I'm like a big uncle,' he says.
When Mickey Fruchter started teaching at the Neighborhood Music School in Boyle Heights in 1964, they didn't tell him how much he'd get paid. The violinist simply showed up, did his job and went home, figuring he'd get the going rate of between $4 and $6 an hour.
