Rovero inducted into Putnam High School Wall of Honor

May 6, 2017

On May 6, I was in good company as I was inducted into the Putnam High School Wall of Honor. I was honored along with the late Gertrude Chandler Warner, an author known for "The Boxcar Children" series and a longtime teacher; the late Rose Bove LaRose, a businessperson and education advocate; the late John N. Dempsey, former governor of Connecticut; and William H. Mansfield III, who has a career in the United States Foreign Service.

While this is one of the greatest honors I have ever received, a lot of people helped get me here. In fact, it was the late Governor Dempsey who introduced me to politics.

Thank you to the members of the Wall of Honor Committee for including me in your first class of inductees. I look forward to seeing who will join us when the second class of inductees is chosen.
