A member of our dorm staff, Larry Boozer, passed away yesterday (December 13th) unexpectedly. Larry has been a member of the MEHS family since 1988. He started out as a Dorm Aide and was currently serving as MEHS Security Chief.
Mr. Boozer was in contact with many of our students; not only by being around campus, in the dorms, but also by providing van runs to town and to the airport. People that knew him well describe him as dependable, loyal, respectful, friendly, and an asset to our school – everything that we would want to embody within MEHS. He will be missed.
Students were informed about his passing last night. Counseling was made immediately available and will be available throughout the rest of the week. A normal schedule will be followed for the remainder of the week.
The school is working closely with Mr. Boozer’s family to plan a memorial event on campus prior to students leaving at the end of this week. We will miss Mr. Boozer, but he will be remembered as a dear member of the MEHS family.
