"Flame of Hope"

May They Never Be Forgotten

In Remembrance...

This is a place to remember those of our alumni and teachers who have passed on...

Our lost comrades are listed in alphabetical order according to the year they graduated or would have graduated.

This list is based on information given by fellow Monti High alumni. My sincere apologies for any inaccuracies. If I have any names, or graduation years misspelled or incorrect, etc. please let me know so I can correct them right away. Please also take the time to check out the list at the end of the site for those whom we know are gone but do not have full graduation info for. Maybe you can help complete the information for these people.

Please leave any corrected information either in the memorial guestbook or by contacting me directly,
Pam Cohen Cipriano
Monti High, Class of '74, at monti_hi@yahoo.com This memorial is updated on a quarterly basis, so if you contact me regarding an addition or correction and it is not tended to right away, please be patient, it will be.

Please take a minute or two to sign our guestbook, and if you are a Monti High alumni, let us know what year you graduated, any info for the site, special remembrances of our fallen comrades, etc., that you'd like to share. If it was a teacher, please give his or her name, the subjects and the approximate years they taught; we would like to have a section dedicated to our teachers.

Please also be sure to let me know if the student or teacher was killed or missing in action in any military conflict, so we can honor their service to our country.

Due to policy changes at Delphi/Prospero, we have started a new free message board on MSN. We have an extensive list of links for Monti High and Sullivan County Community College, games like our song chain, etc. with lots more to come!! Stop by and meet both new friends and old and for all the fun at http://groups.msn.com/MontiHighHomeofthePanthers - For further information, contact Pam Cohen Cipriano, Class of '74, at monti_hi@yahoo.com

Anyone who has any other suggestions to add to the memorial board is welcome to get in touch with me.

Many thanks to my good friend, Christa File, Deer Park (Long Island, NY) High School, Class of '79, (my husband's alma mater) for all of her help with this board.



For those we have lost...
You were special and we miss you...
May you rest in peace

Faculty and Staff

We would also like to give place to those faculty and staff, who have passed on, beginning with former Monti High principal, Thomas Kiley. His daughter, Maureen, whom I graduated with, was kind enough to send me his obituary, which reads as follows:

Sullivan County Democrat - April 19, 2002 - Thomas P. Kiley Sr., Ret. HS Principal

Thomas P. Kiley Sr. of Stony Brook, a former resident of Elmont and Monticello, died Thursday, April 4, 2002. After serving in the military and obtaining the rank of Major, Mr. Kiley moved to Monticello and became principal of the Monticello High School, serving from 1969 until his retirement in June 1980. His wife was an elementary school teacher at the George W. Cooke School in Monticello. Mr. Kiley was a member and past president of the Monticello Kiwanis Club and a Eucharistic Minister at St. Peter's R.C. Church in Monticello. In a family statement, it was said, "He was an absolute fixture at all high school athletic events and was well-loved by the community."
