On Oct. 29, during Homecoming Week activities, Sevastopol School District students, faculty and staff members dedicated a bench in memory of Paula Symons, who died from cancer in May 2019. Symons served the school for 20 years as an elementary school secretary and secretary to the athletic director.
“She loved the kids, and she loved athletics,” said Superintendent Kyle Luedtke. “She was just a fantastic lady.”
Ashley and Cody Leist of Door County Chainsaw Services created the bench that’s now in place between the grade school gym and athletics office. The bench was made possible by the Leists and through staff donations and funds from Athletic Director Brooke Tanck. Photograph and text by Craig Sterrett.
