Trumbull High Auditorium to Be Dedicated to Former Principal

A dedication ceremony will be held at the Board of Ed's next meeting.

The Board of Education will be dedicating the Trumbull High School auditorium in the memory of former principal Robert E. McCarthy.

A plaque reflecting Robert McCarthy’s image and the inscribed dates of his tenure in the Trumbull Public Schools has already been mounted and his name is affixed in prominent letters above the entrance doors to the auditorium.   

The dedication will be held in the foyer adjacent to the new auditorium as the first item on the board’s agenda for their next meeting, set for 7 p.m., June 3.

The legacy of Robert McCarthy is well known throughout the entire community as the result of his commitment and passion for educating Trumbull’s youth. During his many years in the Trumbull Public Schools, Robert touched the lives of thousands of people.

One of his most valued achievements was the special relationship that he had with all of the students who attended his schools. He was Principal of Trumbull High School from 1985 to 2000. His previous positions included Principal of Madison Jr. High School from 1971 to 1985; Principal of Middlebrook Jr. High from 1969 to 1971; Assistant Principal of Hillcrest Jr. High School from 1967 to 1969; and Teacher at Nicholas Elementary School from 1964 to 1967.

His achievements in moving Trumbull High School forward in preparation for the 21st Century are best remembered by his staff and the many students who remember him as a principal who always had time to listen. He cared for everyone as the patriarch of the Trumbull High School family.

Comments from his staff and students are welcome and should be emailed, prior to the dedication, to Denise Faiella in the Superintendent’s Office at faiellad@trumbullps.org.  

The public is invited to the dedication.
