I signed because my mom, Lillian Murray and my father, Donald McLean were part of the first class to attend York. I went there too and graduated in 1968. York prepared me for the demands of U. Of T. and the events of my future life. I’ve lived in NY for the past 38 years but York for what it represents and the people I met there are a significant part of my life. Verna McLean

Whenever I took my Richview Collegiate athletes to "Memo" for competitions, I would march them into the hall where the memorial is located and invite them to reflect on the sacrifice made by thoze named and their good fortune at not having to face the same call to service.

I'm signing for the respect of the past and the future. I went to George Harvey years ago i wouldn't want this to happen to GHCI as well.
