On behalf of the Art & Design Alumni Association, we are sorry to inform you of the passing of one of our alumni. Michael Cheverino, beloved HS of Art & Design teacher and former President of the A&D Alumni Association, and alumnus of the Class of 1971.
Not only was Michael Cheverino a dedicated and caring teacher, he was also very involved with Art & Design’s Alumni Association. He was the organization’s Vice President from early 1992 through October 2008, when he became its President. He graciously offered his classroom for our meetings until we were able to secure a room of our own. Michael also encouraged his students to participate in our alumni events — often as hosts. It was a great way to inspire them to follow in our footsteps. I’ve known Michael, and worked with him, for a more than two decades. He was truly one of a kind and will be dearly missed.
Yvonne Fitzner, former Alumni Association President
(June 1990 – June 2007)
