The Malden High School Alumni Association is looking to honor teachers, coaches and class and club advisors in an energized campaign to sell seat-naming rights in Jenkins Auditorium.

The MHSAA is urging alums to pay tribute to these people with

special engraved bronze-like nameplates on the seats in the

auditorium (see photos on www.maldenhighalumni.com)

These are the dedicated people who helped guide multiple

generations of students in class, sports and in clubs such as

English, history, math, science, German, Spanish, French,

physical education, home economics, child care, and in the arts.

The MHSAA wants to “encourage individuals to step up to name

a seat for someone in this special group,” said Diane Lind,

Class of ’54, who chairs the “Name a Seat” campaign.

The alumni group also suggests “groups of four or five people to

go in together” to honor a particular coach or teacher, Lind said,

and perhaps there will be a special area in the auditorium set aside

as a “teachers” section.

The cost of each nameplate is $100.

About half of the 904 seats in Jenkins have been “sold” with

nameplates engraved and already permanently installed.

Lind said the goal of this latest effort is to add at least another

100 named seats this school year.

“If this special campaign works well,” Lind said, “the money we

take in through seat-naming should be used to fund five $1,000

scholarships/academic awards.”

Some of the funds raised will also be used to help individual

students in need, and for other student activities, she said.

Seat reservation forms and instructions are available on the

MHSAA website, www.maldenhighalumni.com.
