Jackie Kolodziej: Name new EHS library after dedicated teachers
To the editor:
I am another former student of the late Dorothea K. Rockey and Charles F. Rockey Jr. I feel that Easthampton was very fortunate that these two dedicated educators came our way. When Hilary Clinton asserted that “it takes a village” to raise a child. I thought of all the generations of Easthamptonites that passed through their tutelage. Yes, they did raise a village.
I would like to see the Rockey Memorial Library come to pass. This gesture could help the new EHS seem more acceptable to those who voted against it. The best part of the soon-to-be-razed EHS would live on.
Easthampton has never seemed interested in the history of its schools. Let’s change this.
