It was on the evening of this day fourteen years ago that the newly
constructed 500 square foot Wellness Center in the Bay Shore Middle School
was dedicated in honor of Gene Schmidt, the late Superintendent of the Bay
Dr. Schmidt had passed away earlier in the year after a protracted battle
with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. He
had been strong advocate of physical fitness and advancing computer
technology in the schools.
This had transpired in less than a year following the founding of the
coalition which was be the Wellness Alliance.
A good thought, or two, to start this day.
