Wheatley to Dedicate Soccer Facility In Memory of Craig J. Grumet
Last spring, the Wheatley School-community was devastated by the untimely death of Craig Grumet, a junior at The Wheatley School. Craig, who was a unique and extraordinary young man, was killed in a tragic automobile accident on May 7, 2004. At Wheatley, Craig embraced, with a passion, many of the wonderful educational opportunities the school offered and he assumed a leadership role in a variety of programs. From the first day of soccer practice during his freshman year, Craig's inspired play and high level of skill earned him a starting position as a defender on the varsity soccer team. He was the recipient of the Tournament Sportsmanship Award during the New York State Soccer Championships during his freshman year, and as a sophomore and junior, Craig received All-Conference honors.
