Five snow goose cherry memorial trees were planted last year thanks to a gift from Spring Valley Education Foundation board member and past President Harry Dent. They replace memorial trees lost during the construction of the new Spring Valley High School building and are in memory of:
Dr. Harry Sunshine, beloved children's dentist and parent of Spring Valley High School graduates Marc and Amy, who was tragically killed while riding his bicycle in September 2000. He was a benefactor of many Spring Valley High School activities and a long-time member of the Spring Valley Education Foundation Board of Directors.
Frank K. Sloan, founding member of the Spring Valley Education Foundation, long-time member of its Board of Directors and generous benefactor, who died in May, 1999.
Jimmy Podell, a Spring Valley High School student who passed away in April 1987.
Bryan Gallogly, 1990 Spring Valley High School graduate, who passed away in August 1991 just before his sophomore year at the Citadel.
Mark Samulski, a Spring Valley High School student who passed away in April 1992.
