Underpriviledged Youth Scholarship Fund

As some of you may know, Mrs. Eleanor Peay passed away on December 1, 2008 after a long battle with diabetes and other health related issues. Mrs. Peay, affectionately known as "Mamma Peay",  worked in the serving line of the school lunchroom at UHHS during the 1970's and was loved by all who knew her. She was active in community affairs throughout her adult life and one of her many interests was the establishment of a scholarship fund for underpriviledged youth. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please send your donation to:

Brown Chapel Youth Scholarship Fund
801 Charity Road
Chester, SC  29706

The address is the home of her husband, John Peay Sr., and either he or his son David will make sure any contributions made will be put into the scholarship fund. Thank you.

Please see the following message I just got from Sabrina and remember Mike and the Gray family in your prayers.  Please pass this on to all the other Hadites you know.  If you’ve received this in error or as a duplicate I am truly sorry but time is of the essence.

I spoke to Deborah Gray this morning who had just spoken to her mother.  Her mom told her if she wanted to speak to Mike she needed to come now he was very weak and could no longer walk.  I spoke to Mike within the past thirty days and his body was reacting to the medication very well I don't have a clue how it changed so quickly.  Life is not promised and we don't know what each day brings so I beg you all to live right and enjoy it.  Michael has asked that you all get regular check ups he has colon cancer and he said to tell you guys please please please get check ups for preventive maintenance.  I have cried so much and prayed hard for my (our) brother Michael it hurts me because he's family.  You too are all my family and as you can see age means nothing keep in touch with each other drop a line to at least one old friend from time to time.  I will hopefully get to speak to Mike a little later this afternoon so I will convey your well wishes to him.  Love you all Sabrina

Hey Guys,

Heads up - Mike has taken a turn for the worst.  Please let anyone know who knows him.  We think less than 2 weeks.


We need your prayer!

Changes are afoot!!!  As you may or may not know or noticed… is no longer in service. Our official Web Site is now this one. We want to thank Fred Antrobus for all his help in stepping in when Dan Kubicek could no longer be our Webmaster. But as with all things, Fred got busier than usual at work and he kept having server problems.  Being able to access our website is extremely important, especially when it comes to updating information. Sometimes we only get one shot at something and if you can’t get to where you need to be then the information may get lost. Gary has done a superior job with his website and it was just a natural transition from there to here.  Drop him a line occasionally and let him know just how much we appreciate him!!!

I wanted to let the alumni association and its members know that
my book, "Conquering Adversity:  Six Strategies to Move You and
Your Team Through Tough Times," was published this week by
Cornerstone Leadership Institute (Dallas, TX) and is available
online at or or by
phone (888) 789-5323.  There is also a link at my website

I am a 1979 graduate of SHAPE as was my wife, Cynthia Novak
(Short).  Cynthia was killed in 1998 by a driver high on drugs who
ran a stop sign.  This book will motivate your mind and inspire
your heart as it reveals real-life strategies that help readers
discover the hero inside all of us.  I have attached an
announcement for reference.

We are all alumni of an overseas military experience that helped
shape who we are today.  I would appreciate your helping me get
the word out to your members on this inspirational book.

Thank you,

Christopher Novak
SHAPE, '79
