J. Sherman ‘Sherm’ McLaughlin passed away on Friday, September 15, 2017. He made an indelible mark on the school through his service as a Trustee, Board President, and Interim Head of School, and he was elected the school’s first Honorary Alumnus by WT alumnae in 1993.
McLaughlin joined the Board of Trustees in 1985. In the early 1990s, as Board President, he ushered WT into coeducation, ultimately shaping the school community as it is today. He is remembered by the WT community for his thoughtfulness, integrity, and vision.
We express our deepest condolences to Sherm’s wife, Sue, and his daughters, Dorothy McLaughlin ’91, Sarah McLaughlin Lee ’95, and Martha McLaughlin Schloetzer ’95.
