Don E. Holmes Memorial Weight Room dedication

Paul Paparella, a former Shelton High football player and 1979 graduate, and his wife, Claudia, recently donated $100,000 worth of weight room equipment to the school.

A dedication ceremony for the Don E. Holmes Memorial Weight Room, named in honor of Claudia Paparella's father, a school sports advocate, was held on March 18.
