In Good Company...

One week from Saturday, the one and only WPK, Sr. shall be honored at Wardlaw-Hartridge as this year's recipient of the school's Distinguished Faculty Award.  He is the first posthumous recipient of this award, which shall be given as part of the Annual Alumni Awards Ceremony that will take place at Wardlaw-Hartridge, 1295 Inman Avenue, Edison, New Jersey beginning at or about 4:00 pm.

It is our family's sincere pleasure and privilege to not only have Dad honored by a place he unabashedly loved but to know that he is being honored as part of an event that shall see three individuals, Eloise Cordasco (Class of '81), Steven Maxwell (Class of '82), and Ryan Hegna (Class of '99), as well as the members of the 1980-1982 Golf teams, a championship-winning juggernaut that won everything except for the Ryder Cup (and that was only because they were not invited to participate) during that three-year period, enshrined into the school's Athletic Hall-of-Fame.  

Also at this event, one of the law's best souls, brightest lights and sharpest minds (who also may very well be the spiritual heiress to the Notorious RBG as a member of the Supremes) Justice Bridget Mary McCormack of the Michigan Supreme Court (Class of '84) shall be honored as this year's recipient of the school's Distinguished Alumni Award.    

It should be one hell of a nice afternoon/evening.  Speaking only for myself, I am looking forward to it very much.

Wow! That's so beautiful for WH to honor such a wonderful man, father, teacher. I'll never forget Latin classes, and the ski trip with your Dad. Great memories!
