Mr Wilson at Bond Hill School

I was in the room next door to Mark Shaw and was in the 6th grade when the announcement was made.. a day in history we will never forget.. Mr Wilson was a great educator and was nice to us all at Bond Hill school. May he now have rest.

When I was in his fifth grade class at Bond Hill School on November 22, 1963, Mr. Wilson gathered his students around him and announced to us the death of John F. Kennedy. Mr. Wilson was a great teacher and a gentle man, and, of course, I'll remember him forever. My sympathies to his family.
