Today, I am in Newhard's Pharmacy, speaking to Mr. Jack Pavis, one of the owners of a landmark business in Northampton. Jack has a wonderful family heritage. His family's roots are in the country of Lithuania. Most students today probably couldn't find the nation on a map!

Mr. Stephen J. Hayden was reared in Allentown and graduated from the Swain School in 1974. With a sense of humor he recalls, "Our graduating class consisted of six students so I had no difficulty making the top 10."
Influenced by his father who was a civil engineer, Steve continued his education at Keystone College and Clarkson College in New York.
Starting employment at the Keystone Cement Company in 1978, he was determined to learn about the various aspects of the plant's operation. His first position was as a crane operator.
