We at Vanport Mosaic wish to take a moment to honor a voice which was lost.  Following his Army service in World War II, Mr. Ray Lokting was one of the first returning veterans to enroll at Vanport Extension Center.  From the beginning, he was heavily involved in campus life, having been elected to the office of Student Manager, where he had many responsibilities.  Besides helping the multitude of school clubs organize their social activities, Student Managers published a weekly bulletin and headed up numerous charity drives.  Mr. Lokting was a chairman of the very first alumni association and memorably presided over banquets and fundraisers.  For well over 60 years, Mr. Lokting was an active and enthusiastic alumnus, participating in educational forums and working to help preserve the unique history of the college he loved.  He passed away Dec. 20, 2015 at the age of 92.  We extend our deepest sympathies to the Lokting family.
