Four New Members of RHS Hall of Fame
Four former students of Rockland High School were inducted into the Academic Hall of Fame on June 5th. The inductees included two former RHS teachers, a successful restaurant manager, as well as a successful journalist/science fiction writer.
Mrs. Susan Patton, assistant principal at RHS and chairperson of the Hall of Fame committee, introduced each inductee.
Timothy Souza, Class of 1986, is a successful chef and owner of the Five Bays Bistro in Osterville. Souza has given cooking demonstrations at RHS since he graduated and he also dedicates time to teach inmates how to cook at a local prison.
Carol Souza, Class of 1960, taught cooking and sewing in the Home Economics Department at RHS before she retired seven years ago. She graduated from Keene State College. She continues to teach night school for the Rockland Public Schools and a cooking summer camp for students.
Louis Antonelli, Class of 1975, is a journalist and a successful science fiction short story writer who now lives in Mount Pleasant, Texas. His third collection of science fiction short stories will be out in the fall. He was editor of the Rockland High School student newspaper, the Veritas for two and a half years while an RHS student. His sister, Angela Antonelli, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2010.
Stephen Sangster, Class of 1965, spent his entire career in education at Rockland High, where he was a successful coach, teacher and finally the principal for 15 years. He served as an administrator of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association during his tenure as principal. He retired last year after 41 years in education.
The induction ceremony was held together with the Rockland High School Academic Awards Banquet which honors academic achievers from grades 9-11 at RHS. In attendance were students and their families along with faculty and staff from RHS, including many former teachers.
