Assistant principal Art Psaledas helped Cardwell come up with the idea, suggesting a memorial was needed to benefit the school and the community.
”As an educator, something like this really hits home,” Psaledas said. “When you lose one of your students who you used to see every day, it really hits everyone hard.”
A granite column will lay across the front, with the inscription, “Dedicated to those brave Londonderry High School alumni who gave the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our country’s freedom.”
