Hudson – Town and state officials participated in a dedication ceremony Oct. 30 for the new $43.3 million Quinn Middle School, which replaced the 45-year-old JFK Middle School.
Speakers included Massachusetts School Building Authority Executive Director Jack McCarthy; state Sen. Jamie Eldridge, D-Acton; state Rep. Kate Hogan, D-Stow; Superintendent Dr. Kevin Lyons; Quinn Middle School Principal Brian Daniels; Tammy Ducey, a JFK Middle School Building Committee member; and Leigh Sherwood of OMR Architects. Representing the school's students were seventh-graders Jordyn Yates and Bryce Miranda.
The school is named in memory of David J. Quinn, JFK Middle School's first principal and a committee member for that building. He was also a longtime athletic director, and hockey and baseball coach in the district. Speaking on behalf of his family was his son, Selectman James Quinn.
An open house was held for the public that evening.
