“It will still be the Chester High School gym, it will just have Darold Adamson’s name on it,” said alumna Joan Sayre Feb. 23 at the conclusion of the vote on the initiative to name the CHS gym.
Although other names were mentioned in discussion, Adamson was the only individual nominated for the honor.
“Darold was a CHS teacher, coach and principal from 1957–1984. There have been other coaches, but the longevity is his,” said Sayre.
Sayre commented on the unanimous vote, “We can also do a plaque and place in the gym or other area of the school where we recognize all coaches—past, present and future.”
Among those Sayre thought should be listed is Luana Gakle.
Known for his landscapes, Michael Kirby says he tries to capture and share the "awe of a place." He will exhibit his watercolors at Main Street Artists in downtown Quincy during March. An opening reception is scheduled for 5-8 p.m. Thursday, March 4. The show will hang through March 14.
