In Memoriam: Alice Wesoloski

Alice Wesoloski passed away on June 2nd. Alice was a dedicated member of the School's staff for 40 years and was assistant to four chairmen and a counselor and friend to many faculty, staff and students. Alice had a widely known reputation that one could always go to her and know that she could magically fix any problem. I know she loved the School deeply and was sorely missed when she retired. We who were lucky enough to know her are that much richer that she was part of our lives. Please join me in remembering Alice and keep her and her family in your prayers.

If you would like to share a memory of Alice, you can send it to us here and we will ensure that her family receives the message. 

In sympathy,
