Memorial Bench

​In 2010 we constructed the Student Memorial Bench between the North and West doors, facing the corner of McCarthy Blvd. and Rochdale Blvd. This was constructed in memory of three students in particular: Kurtis Culbert (1986-2003), Taylor Smerchynsku (1991-2009) and Spenser Borlase (1991 - 2009) to help us remember that it's not how long a star shines, but the brightness of its light!
