Remembering Washington: Purpose and Legacy
In this final episode, we’ve invited a few alumni and community leaders to share what it means to leave a legacy. The Washington Elementary and High School alumni still gather annually to stay in touch and pass their stories down to a new generation of kids, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. There is a collective and profound sense of pride and appreciation for the former administrators, teachers, and students who made this school unique. The nuggets of wisdom, technical skills, and inspiration that Washington instilled in so many in such a short time provides many reasons to celebrate. The lessons learned at this school will never be forgotten.
