The Radnor Township Board of Commissioners honored teacher David Heacock of St. Katharine of Siena School, Wayne, and its eighth-grade graduating class of 2012 on Oct. 8 for a presentation on local veterans.
The students, through Heacock’s guidance and with a national group called Saving Hallowed Ground, participated in a project last school year called the Legacy Marker Project.
It involved extensive research on soldiers from the local area who served in WWI and were memorialized at the Radnor Monument on South Wayne Avenue in the township.
A video of the students’ presentation is available here.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
