We are happy to dedicate the Chemistry Lab to Dr. DeLuca.
Dr. DeLuca, a Westbank native and founding faculty member, was beloved by his pupils by his example and personal touch and interest in each student’s life. As reflected by Mr. Russo, the current chemistry teacher, it must be quite the honor to be remembered so fondly by past students that not only do they remember you but also express their gratitude. As we work to advance the educational experience of our students, these benefactors have donated over $20,000 specifically to improve our chemistry lab in Dr. DeLuca’s honor. A plate has been placed on the door leading to the lab as well as a portrait of Dr. DeLuca within the lab.
“Bless the Lord, my soul; all my being, bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord , my soul; do not forget all the gifts of God,
Who pardons all your sins, heals all your ills,
Delivers your life from the pit, surrounds you with love and compassion,
Fills your days with good things; your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” – Psalm 103
