While the Dedication Ceremony remains on hold, please remember that the Memorial is complete and can be viewed by anyone visiting the Memorial Gardens located on the south side of the Jerusalem Avenue Middle School.
The project will be officially complete once we are able to conduct the Dedication Ceremony at the Memorial.
On behalf of the Project Team,
Each month, we profile a former student that has submitted a biographical sketch of their life. This month we have highlighted Steven Ragusea from the class of 1964. Many of you have not used the opportunity of sharing precious moments with other classmates. It’s not too late to submit a sketch to be included in the Alumni Bio Section (click the link on the left to go to the bios section) of the newsletter. We are including a writeable document that you can fill in on you computer and, after completing the document, forward to firstname.lastname@example.org
