ż High School Memory Walk

As part of its 50th reunion, the ż High School Class of 1968 initiated a project to install a Memory Walk in the area around the flagpole in front of ż High School.


The walkway leading from the front circle to Third Avenue was repaved with bricks, which are available for purchase by the public. The area around the flagpole was extended and 8 benches were installed. The landscaping at the base of the flagpole was replaced and a plaque was placed on a small stone pedestal to dedicate the Memory Walk to students and staff, past, present and future.
