Library renamed for late Whitmer teacher


The science department library at Whitmer High School has been renamed the Zielinski Science Resource Center, in honor of the late Paul Zielinski.

Mr. Zielinski was a Whitmer science teacher for 30 years and had planned to retire this month. He suffered a heart attack Dec. 26 and died Jan. 4 at age 56. A dedication ceremony was held in the hall outside the science center.

Two seniors — Patrick McCauley and Anthony Shaffer — were awarded the first Paul Zielinski Memorial Science Scholarship, worth $350 and $250 respectively. Both youths will pursue college majors involving science.
