Letter to Editor: Gifts last a lifetime

To the Editor:

Last week, our community lost someone special: George Demas.

From the earliest days of MDI High School until his retirement, Mr. Demas, with the help of Joyce Higgins, was the force behind MDIHS’s theater program, a program that not only achieved a consistent series of wonderful productions, year after year, but also helped a generation of MDI kids discover their own powers of creativity and expression, which are gifts to last a lifetime.

In addition to theater, George Demas taught many memorable academic courses, and moreover was in inspiration and role model, the like of which most of us only meet a few times in our lives.

We will miss him.
