As a freshman and sophomore at John Glenn in Westland, MI, my son, Evan Ringwelski, worked on the crew for the school's theatrical productions. He joined his sister, who had already been involved for some time, and quite a few of his good friends.
During his time on crew, Evan got to do a lot of fun, new things. He also made great new friends, including Alicia, who would become his awesome and supportive girlfriend.
Hearing his stories about crew and how much he enjoyed it made me really happy. The fact that he is no longer here, of course, makes me very sad (understatement).
For what would have been Evan's senior year at JGHS and his last year on crew--I am sure he would have been there with you all this year--I would like to buy a full-page ad to print in the program in his memory. The cost is $100, but I am really hoping to exceed that by a considerable margin.
Every last penny of these proceeds will go directly to the JGHS theater crew so they can continue to do their thing! These students and adults who volunteer their time more than deserve the help--they work so hard!
Thank you to anyone who is able to help out with this effort! I am sure that Evan would be honored to know that we are all missing and loving him, as we always will.
In memory of Evan Michael Ringwelski, a beautiful soul gone far too soon <3
