I had the honor to attend the dedication of “Jimmy’s Field,” in honor of Sgt. James Regan this past Wednesday at Munsey Park School. The string and wind ensemble played beautifully and the ceremony led by the student council officers was so moving.
What impressed me most was how all of the students, some so very young, were quiet and respectful. I lost my composure when Sgt. Regan’s sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Reisman, spoke. I was not alone.
As a parent and grandparent of past and present Munsey Park students, I have spent many an afternoon and evening at the school during the last 50 years. I have never been so proud.
