FRAMINGHAM – Framingham High School will formally dedicate the Athletic Complex in memory of alumni and respected leader in the Framingham Public School district James E. Carey, announced the district this afternoon, June 8.
As a student Carey was a standout, multi-sport athlete.
He became a teacher, a football coach, and the first Director of Health and Physical Education for the district.
Carey, or Jim as many called him, was a well-known advocate for the students in Framingham and a great leader in the Framingham Public School community, said a media release.
The Athletic Complex was previously named after James E. Carey, but this re-dedication will finalize the tribute when his name is added to the outside wall of the complex.
