The Harker School will hold a memorial in honor of Sandy Padgett, original member of the upper school faculty and founding director of Harker’s college counseling program, who passed away April 22. The celebration of Padgett’s life will be Thurs., May 30, 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the quad at the upper school campus.
Guests will be able to peruse some of the wonderful comments her former students have sent in and honor her invaluable contributions to Harker and to the lives of so many students. There will be a few formal remarks and guests can share memories from 4-5 p.m.
The school is creating a book of messages to give to the family after the event. To have a message included, email it to Nicole Hall at email@example.com.
Padgett’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, please send all donations to The Sandy Padgett Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund, established in her memory. Checks can be mailed to the Sandy Padgett Memorial Fund, Harker Advancement, 500 Saratoga Ave., San Jose, CA 95129. Please note “Sandy Padgett Memorial Fund” in the check’s memo line.
So that we can prepare adequate refreshments, please RSVP to Nicole Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 24 if you plan to attend.
This has been a sad and tragic loss for the Harker community. The school continues to provide support to the students and staff, and we hope the outpouring from our community about Sandy Padgett’s impact in their lives is a comfort to her family.
