|LCpl Matthew Medlicott|
On November 11, 2008, a new flagpole, plaque and lighting for both, located on the south side of the AOEC building, were dedicated to former AOEC student, LCpl Matthew Medlicott.
LCpl Matthew Medlicott perished August 25, 2007 while serving with the I Marine Expeditionary Force in Iraq. He is the son of Mr. Bart Medlicott, Director of Orchestras at Waukegan High School and instrumental music teacher at several schools throughout District 60.
Donations were received by many generous people throughout the school district and surrounding communities to fund this memorial.
We would like to express our gratitude to those for all the help and donations we received, as well as, a great thank you to Mr. Chris Dreyer, Assistant Director at the AOEC, for making this dedication happen.
