The WHS booster club is honoring Mark Gildea by starting a scholarship in his name. Mr. Gildea taught at Windham High School and coached basketball for many years. “Mark was an outstanding human being. His dedication to his students was beyond compare … a positive role model for all,” announced the Booster Club. “It is our sincere hope that this scholarship will give a student who did benefit or would have benefited from Mark as a teacher, coach, mentor, and advocate the opportunity to continue their education.” Donations can be sent as a check to WHS Booster Club, 355 High Street, Willimantic, CT 06226, or through Venmo @WHSBoosterClub.
