Highlights of the T. Michael Bolger Memorial Dedication Ceremony

On May 17, 2022, family, friends and colleagues of Mike Bolger, gathered at Milwaukee Academy of Science, to dedicate the elementary entrance of the school. Mike Bolger was a living example of a servant leader who believed all children deserve a high-quality education. He moved beyond his belief to actions that have enriched the lives of Milwaukee youth both past and present. We, the MAS family and Milwaukee community, are eternally grateful to Mike Bolger for his visionary leadership. 

"All children are learners"
