    I was a student at Fort Hamilton for only two years, but she changed my life. Not only did I love Latin, but she took us to see “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” At that time it was controversial because Zero Mostel had been on the blacklist. She added so much to my life, and I became a techer in part because of her influence.

    I was asked for the most influential person in my life and I found myself dwelling on the many interactions with Hiram Greene. I did not have any classes with Lola but most of my friends did and simply LOVED her as a teacher. So I will be making a donation in support of your scholarship fund. Any woman/lady who brought joy to Hiram Greene’s life must be honored in some way.

    I have spent my working life, and much of my personal life, dealing with computers. Mr. Greene (no I can’t call him Hiram even at this late age) was the man who got me into a programming class while I was a Junior at Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn, NY. He was also such an encouragement as I dealt with trying to find the right college with no money for tuition, etc. He suggested looking at Cooper Union and I was lucky enough to be admitted and graduated with a degree in Elecrtical Engineering. The rest, as they say is history.

    It is my history but it was steered in the right direction by a remarkable teacher.
