Trich, Erik & Katheryn
To culminate Black History Month at our school, we would love to (re-)introduce you to the family man and dedicated civil servant William “Bill” Roberts. His wife Sandra recently provided us with a copy of his 2005 obituary that you can READ HERE. He truly was a remarkable man whose contributions to our city and community can still be felt today. It is our honor to be housed in a building represented not only through his name but by his character.
