October 10, 1940 – December 31, 2008
Leader and visionary of The Harker School, Howard Nichols, passed away Dec. 31, 2008.
A public memorial to honor Howard and celebrate his life was held Jan. 16, 2009 at Harker’s new science and technology center, Nichols Hall, which had been dedicated in honor of Howard and Diana Nichols at the opening ceremonies in August 2008. Nearly 1,000 attended the memorial, which featured music performed by current and alumni students and faculty, as well as inspirational – and humorous – remembrances of Howard by presenters and audience members during the open remembrance portion of the program.
