New memorial outside of Upper School Chapel honors legacy of Rich Hudepohl
The new meeting area was made possible by the generosity of students and parents of the Class of 2018.
A new memorial located just outside of chapel honors beloved and late faculty member Rich Hudepohl. The new meeting area was made possible by the generosity of students and parents of the Class of 2018.
Major Gifts Officer, JV basketball coach, and Rich’s longtime friend Cary Mauck considers the new memorial as the perfect way to honor Rich. “We can see it almost every day when we’re in chapel so his name will be brought up all the time, and some teachers will want to meet their advisees or some group out there in the Hudepohl area,” Cary says.
Longtime Head of the Upper School Tony Szymendera commented, “While Mr. Hudepohl was not a fan of meetings, he would have appreciated a landmark such as this one, where students and faculty can find one another after chapel and build the relationships he cared so much about. The placement near chapel and an announcement to “meet me at Hudie’s” should keep his spirit known among us.”
