'All the Presidents' a fitting acknowledgement

Napier 021 remembered their former member Sean Hickling, who sadly passed away last year in his 41st year, by donating a book to Napier Boys' High School.

Convenor of the group, Shirley Simmons, sent in this scan of a photo of the handover. The book is All the Presidents and contains an inscription acknowledging Sean and the book group.  

She writes:

"Sean did not attend Napier Boys’ High School but sat his exams there as an adult correspondence student. History was his great love. His link to the school was also through our book club. We always have our meetings in the boardroom there.

She goes on to say: "The book will be well-used, as the Master who received it is travelling with a group of senior history students to the USA and they will be studying all the presidents before they leave."

Receiving the book is Sam Englebretsen, from the history department. He has been invited the NAP 021's next meeting, to speak about his recent trip to Namibia and South Africa. Members' husbands will also be attending.
