Dedicate a Memorial

In Honor of Departed Friends and Family

Beautifully crafted by Corky Wilson, the memorial plaque is made of the original wainscot wood from the school and can be found in the school building. Each name is engraved in an individual brass plate by Loop-Jacobsen, Inc. to honor the memory of a departed friend or family member.

105 names have been added to the plaque, and blank plates remain for future names. If you would like to remember a loved one with a donation, please reach out for more information.


We are sincerely grateful for the generous donors, who chose to memorialize a loved one by adding their name to the memorial plaque. Names are listed in order of donation.
