A dedication will be held Sunday for a memorial honoring three people whose histories crossed at the former site of a CMSD elementary school.
The marker pays tribute to Stephen E. Howe, a District administrator for whom the school was named; the Rev. Bruce Klunder, an activist who was accidentally killed during a protest over the school's construction in 1964; and Chadey Anderson, a kindergartner at Howe who died in a drive-by shooting in 1993.
The school was demolished within the last year. Retired Principal Anna Smith appealed to the District to ensure that a tree planted in Chadey's memory was spared. Chief Operating Officer Patrick Zohn agreed and arranged to have CMSD, which still owns the property, add the memorial.
