As many of you are aware, our community has mourned the recent passing of John Wasilchak, who along with his wife, Fran, has been instrumental in supporting our students in many ways.

Many students have had the opportunity to continue their learning with college scholarships over the past several years, courtesy of the Wasilchaks.

And all of our students have experienced the majestic performances of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra as part of a partnership sponsored by the Wasilchak's educational foundation.

On Sunday, Feb. 26, at 2 p.m., there will be an opportunity for our district and community to participate in a celebration of Mr. Wasilchak's life in the Glen Rose High School Auditorium. Musicians from the FWSO and FWSO President Amy Adkins, along with family and friends, will contribute to reflect on the legacy of someone who gave so much to our community and our schools.

Everyone is invited to attend, and personal memories and pictures of Mr. and Mrs. Wasilchak's contributions to our school family can be shared directly with their son Craig at

The GRHS Auditorium is located at 900 Stadium Drive in Glen Rose.
