The original plan was for a downtown parade, honoring Staples’ state championship boys soccer team, the FCIAC champion football team, and other outstanding high school students.
The ACT test, and work and other commitments scuttled those plans. Now, the Wreckers will be feted on Wednesday, Dec. 16, in a special ceremony before the start of the boys basketball team’s home opener vs. Central. The event is slated for 7 p.m., in the gymnasium.
Along with the soccer and football teams, the town will salute the award-winning Staples Players theater troupe; the nationally recognized Inklings staff; the Drury Award-winning WWPT broadcasters; the Seimens/Westhinghouse semifinalists; the stellar Moody’s Math Challenge team; the National Merit semifinalists; writer Haris Durani, and the 2nd-in-the-world robotics team.
Congratulations to all — see you Wednesday!
