Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Jeanmarie Elkins


After graduation from WTHS in 1957 (and before that attending the one-room Clintonville School) I attended the University of Detroit in what was the second year the Jesuits allowed women students. I became the first female freshman allowed on sports fields as a photographer. I returned to write for the Pontiac (now Oakland) Press, becoming an in-plant organizer for The Newspaper Guild. Moving to New Brunswick, NJ I worked as a reporter and editor at The Home News, where I was honored by the state daily newspaper women for feature writing, and became a local union officer and national convention delegate. I precipitated numerous grammatical changes in the libel manual section of the Associated Press Stylebook by citing several instances of incorrect usage of the words “that” and “which.” While there I worked briefly as the community relations director for the Township of East Brunswick. I instituted a monthly magazine delivered to every resident and business at no cost to the township, started an employee newsletter for those located in several different building locations, organized the celebration to commemorate the designation of the historic district on the National Register and created a successful campaign for the sale of tax-exempt municipal denominations. Inquiries came from around the world.

Moving to Laurel, MD, I worked as a writer and editor for the Graphic Communications International Union, traveling throughout the United States and Canada, headquartered in Washington, D.C. I met my husband, John Manco, a union officer at The Philadelphia Inquirer. We’ve been married for 27 years. Some of you may have wondered who he was when I attended one long-ago reunion.

After we married, I moved to Philadelphia and became night managing editor of The Register in Shrewsbury, NJ. I became involved with The Philadelphia Orchestra at a time when it was consider one of the best in the world. I organized the 13th volunteer committee to sponsor fundraisers for the orchestra, organized the first event, became the treasurer, wrote, edited and supervised the production of newsletter that went to members of all committees, became a member of the executive board of the volunteer committees, was treasurer of a 13-committee joint fundraiser, and walked the picket line when orchestra members went on strike.

Easing toward retirement, I worked for a major Philadelphia law firm, where I worked with the trustee for the John Wanamaker estate, whose heirs received five and six-figure checks monthly. I designed the numerous financial charts and a four-color brochure I designed for one of my several personal public-relations clients became the design inspiration for the firm brochure.

In retirement I’ve taught Confraternity of Christian Doctrine classes, become an Extraordinary Minister of Holly Communion as a member of more than one Catholic church, created “Embellishments,” a one-woman show highlighting 50 years of collecting and using unusual elegant personal wear as decorating embellishments, and become an award-winning competitive ballroom dancer.

Along the way I’ve been fortunate in interviewing and, in some cases, becoming friends with famous people in entertainment, business, finance, journalism and political fields, and have been involved in writing articles on the local angle of many national and international events.

I’d welcome reconnecting with classmates.
