Bonnie J. Young: Dedicate EHS library to honor two former teachers
To the editor:
Charles F. and Dorothea K. Rockey had a combined career of 65 years teaching English in the Easthampton Public Schools. They were loved and well-respected by thousands who passed through their classrooms. As a former student of the Rockeys, I would like to voice my opinion to the mayor of Easthampton, the superintendent of Easthampton Public Schools and the powers that are in charge of dedications of the new Easthampton High School building: It would be a great honor to these two people, who gave so much to many generations of students they called “their kids,” to name the building’s new library in their name. I cannot think of any two people who deserve it more.
