Tewksbury High To Honor Tony Romano

Feb 02, 2015 02:50PM ● Published by Rick Spencer

The life-long contributions of former Tewksbury High principal and basketball coach Tony Romano will be recognized in a ceremony before Tuesday night’s TMHS basketball game as the school system names the new high school’s basketball court in his honor.

“Mr. Romano was a tremendous leader, a tremendous mentor and a tremendous friend,” said TMHS athletic director Ron Drouin. “His passing is a big loss for the community and I am glad to be part of a ceremony to honor him.”

Romano served for 38 years in various capacities in the Tewksbury Public School system. He began teaching in Tewksbury in 1964 and worked his way up the ladder until he eventually became the high school principal until his retirement in 2003. He served as Tewksbury High’s basketball coach in the late 1960’s and 1970s before moving on to hold the same position at UMass-Lowell.

Romano recently passed away, in October of 2014.

The high school will hold a reception for friends and family from 5:30-to-6:30. The naming ceremony will take place at 7:00 p.m., preceding the start of Tewksbury High home game against Methuen.
