The Wakefield school community is heartbroken to hear of the loss of recent WHS graduate Benjamin Mohla. Ben was a member of the Class of 2010 and was loved by his teachers, classmates, and friends. Ben’s wonderful sister, Casey, graduated this past spring.
Ben was an active member of the WHS Band, he was a Diversity Leader, and many may remember his vibrant performance in the 2010 Senior Show. I presented Ben with the Principal's Spirit Award on Senior Awards Night, in recognition of a student who lit up our school with joy and enthusiasm. We are all proud that Ben was a senior this year at the University of Vermont.
Counseling and support will be available for students, staff, and alumni in our Guidance Department during school hours this week, with extended hours until 4:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.
On behalf of the school community, I extend our deepest sympathy, love, and prayers to the Mohla family.
