Rogers School Names Climbing Wall In Teacher’s Honor

Kirksey Middle School Honors Wolff

Posted: December 21, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Teaghan Wolff, 6, works her way across the climbing wall dedicated to her father, Chad Wolff, Friday, Dec. 20, 2013, at Kirksey Middle School in Rogers. Wolff, a special education teacher at Kirksey, died in April while hospitalized for surgery. Funding for the climbing was was already in progress at the time of Wolff's death, but since Wolff was a supporter of the project and an athlete, the school decided to commemorate the climbing wall in Wolff's honor.

Students and donors officially welcomed the climbing wall at Birch Kirksey Middle School on Friday, dedicating it in memory of a special education teacher.


“He was a real fun teacher,” Timothy Hicks, eighth-grader, Kirksey Middle School.
