Hickman Kewpie Class of 2009

Congratulations Emily & Drew, on being selected to receive the “ Scholarship.”
This as you probably already know is the first time it has been given and I hope it will
continue to repeat perpetually if we can raise enough money. The scholarship was made
possible by 106 individuals of the 4,613 registered users of
(The Kewpie Classmates Association)

My name is Charley Blackmore I graduated in the Class of 1963 and am the sole proprietor
and webmaster of I have a request to ask of you and hope you will be able
to help me. Hopefully you input which I can publish on will create more
interest in my scholarship and encourage others to make donations or encourage those who
have given to make additional donations. My dream is to establish as many as 6 more
scholarships like the one you just received.

I know this is the busiest of times for you but if you could email me a brief biography, some
pictures of yourself and a story about your future plans, you will make me very happy! Then
as things progress your keeping in touch with me, through to keep the
“Kewpie Spirit” growing, would make me extremely happy too.

On behalf of those 106 Kewpies who made this possible, who can be seen by clicking on
“ Scholarship” from the home page, I wish you success and
happiness in all that you are about to pursue now and for your entire future. I am very
proud of being a “Kewpie” and very proud of you for being the “1st Kewpie” to receive
this scholarship!

I look forward to hearing from you as often as you have time to call, email or come by to visit.
Establishing a long term relationship with you is my dream and I would be honored for you,
if you are available next year at this time, to join me in presenting this scholarship to someone
like you next year!

With Kewpish Regard,

Charley Blackmore

Email from Emily 2009-09-22
Hi Mr. Blackmore!

First off I want to apologize for getting my letter to you so late! I wrote it in June and I thought
I sent it but I was on your website today and realized, obviously, that I hadn't! I want you to
know how grateful I am that I got this award and how much it meant to me. Having been in
college now for about two weeks, I can honestly say how much I really miss my times at
Hickman. I'll be sending you letters often because I would love to keep in touch! I'm so sorry
again and I will be sending pictures also!

Thanks for understanding!
Emily Pintel
Kewpie 09 :)
