Q. The gym at Roland-Grise Middle School was named for long-time coach Calvin Wadsworth. The name was removed from the building for painting. It has been several months. When will it be replaced? 

A. Roland-Grise Middle School’s gym, along with the rest of the school, was painted this summer, said Principal William Hatch. The hand-painted dedication to coach Calvin Wadsworth was taken down at that time.

The school has put a plaque honoring Wadsworth back up, Hatch said, and they’re planning to purchase a large metal framed sign that dedicates the gym to Wadsworth.

“This will look much better and last longer,” Hatch wrote in an email.

UPDATE: As of May 2014, “We replaced the sign and have just erected a brand new one made of more durable material,” said Hatch. He provided us with this photograph of the new sign.


Who are the schools named after?

Why doesn’t New Hanover County Schools have middle school wrestling?
