RAIDER PRIDE PARK
Memorial design concept by Dennis Freet WWR Class of 1973
Raider Pride Park is looking for your support to construct a lasting memorial to honor the students, faculty, and staff of WWR. The memorial we would like to create is more than a statue; it will be a symbol of unity and dedication
for all Raiders…. Past, Present, and Future. It will speak to us of the legacy of West Side Pride for generations to come.
It is our hope that this memorial will give a home to all those with heartfelt memories of the
school we loved and life experiences shared in this city of ours.

HOW CAN I HELP
In 2010, Mark Clawges, Sue Tobias, Sharon Edwards and numerous other Warren Western Reserve alumni rallied to peacefully protest the demolition of their high school.
Since that fateful date five years ago, the Warren Western Reserve Memorial Committee has been actively raising funds to construct a lasting memorial to honor the academic, athletic, and community contributions made by the students, faculty, and staff of WWRHS to preserve the historical merit of
Raider Pride throughout the community of Warren.
On December 10, 2013 Superintendent Michael Notar and Warren City Schools Board of Education members granted the WWR Memorial Committee permission to use the property facing south of the
Warren G. Harding façade for the construction of a WWRHS Memorial Park.
Plans for the WWR Memorial Park include a bricked courtyard setting featuring a double life sized bronze Raider statue with benches around the perimeter for Raiders and visitors to collectively gather to pause and reflect. Memorial bricks in 3 sizes, class sponsored benches as well as Gold Sponsorshipswill be available for sale to help complete project funding.
