February 01, 2009
Frank Lawrence and Donna Macklin met in William Stafford’s English class in 1948. They graduated from Lewis & Clark in 1952 — Frank with a degree in business and Donna with a degree in music and education.
They were married in 1952. Donna was an elementary music and classroom teacher. Frank went into business with Crown Zellerbach Corporation in West Linn, Oregon.
As their children grew up, Frank and Donna became involved with the Lewis & Clark International Students Program. Over the years, they welcomed students from Hong Kong, Thailand, and Peru into their home by acting as a host family.
Frank served as a chair of the Golden Reunion for the class of 1952. Since then, he and Donna have helped establish the 1952 Scholarship Fund, and they are now members of the Albany Society Board of Directors. They have supported the Valentine’s Day luncheons for alumni and other projects. They both are currently chairing the committee planning Albany Week, which will be February 23-26, 2009.
Frank and Donna have two daughters and four grandchildren. They live in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
