Remembering M. Willard Lampe II

We were deeply saddened to share the news of the sudden passing of M. Willard "Wink" Lampe II, on Jan. 17, 2018. Wink served as Cushing's tenth headmaster from 2000 to 2006. His leadership over six academic years encompassed many highlights, including a deep commitment to teaching, a passion for music and the arts, and the construction of a much-needed academic facility, the Joseph R. Curry Academic Center. (Please read our full remembrance here.)

We received many heartfelt messages on our Facebook page, and we are in the process of compiling these notes and memories to share with Jody Lampe and their children. We invite you to add your condolences and remembrances via the form below, to be shared with the Lampes and used in further community tributes.
