The Kingston High School community gathered on Saturday for a ceremony formally dedicating the school’s auditorium to the late Wendell Scherer, a much beloved teacher who passed away last year. A plaque put up in his honor reads in part, “For almost 40 years, Wendell embodied the joy and true spirit of education with teaching English, Theater Arts and Mythology at MJM and then Kingston High School. … Because of the joy, passion and spirit he poured into every moment, Wendell will forever be remembered.”
