Lucette Senesac Endowment for the Studio Arts

Lucette Senesac (13 October 1931 – 13 February 2007) was a graduate of Shelburne High School, and while at Johnson Teachers College was active in the Athletic Association (softball & basketball), the yearbook, Outing Club, Swampscott Conference, Newman Club, Dramatics Club, and directed the Minstrel Show. She student taught in Richford (grades 7 & 8) and in West Berkshire (grades 5 to 8). Courses she took included oil painting, which remained a long time interest. After graduating from Johnson, Lucette moved to California, where she lived outside Los Angles in Chatsworth, CA. She taught in the public school system for some years, and then moved to administration (Chapter 1 Coordinator for LA Unified School District). She earned her master’s in education from Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles. Her friends say, “She always spoke of Johnson State with the highest esteem.” Her obituary says: “She was a dedicated teacher, educator, artist, and noted as Woman of the Year in 1965. She left a lasting goodness in everyone she touched and inspired a warm resolution to better oneself. She wanted to be remembered as a talented artist, but most of all an educator of children.”

The funding from this endowment comes from a $20,000 bequest from the estate of Lucette A. Senesac, Class of 1953, and was established in 2008. This interest from the endowment can be used as determined by the studio arts faculty, for projects such as faculty enhancements, student/faculty enrichment travel (such as trips to New York museums), student prizes, scholarships, renovations, supplies, or other purposes as decided by the faculty.
