Jericho School District honored alumni Richard Fraser, Edward Marclovich, Glenn Minck, and Leo Roberts last Thursday in a tree dedicating ceremony. The four died during the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Over 50 people attended the event, including family members and friends, and featured speeches by Hilari Cohen, president of the Board of Education, Hank Grishman, superintendent of schools and a piano performance by eighth grader Wei-Ping Chen.
A magnolia tree was planted at the circle of the high school and memory books containing pictures and letters were handed to the families. A bronze plaque sits in front of the tree dedicating it to the four alumni.
“This tree is symbolic of our community,” Cohen said. “It stands as a representation of what we mean to one another.”
