Before a gathering of 70 people, the new Memorial Garden at Wellesley High School was re-dedicated on Saturday in the grassy space left of the school building with benches and new plantings. All members of the school community and the town itself were invited. There were brief speeches by former teacher, Brooks Goddard, and current principal, Andrew Keough. The names read out included those of former faculty, and the years of their death, and the names of former students and their class year.
Faculty: John Certuse (1967), Sue Copell (1991), Sam Graves (1969), Gloria Niese (1985), Alice Teed (1967), Sally Wellington (1982). Students: Matthew Jong ’93, Sean O’Brien ’94, Jason Heacock ’95, Dan McCabe ’07, Jenny McPhee ’07, Christine Chang ’07, Hannah Randolph ’15.
A reception in the high school lobby followed.
The Memorial Garden is complemented by the works of the WHS Landscaping Committee. Volunteers from the National Honor Society assisted Committee chair Brooks Goddard last week in cleaning up the Katherine Bronson Rhododendron Garden.
