Last week, my high school classmate Brad Calhoun took his own life. It is one of the saddest things I have heard about in a very long time. Thanks to Pam Edwards Moore, the class of 1980 at Parklane Academy is establishing a fund for band students who need help buying instruments. We all need to cherish our friends while we have an opportunity to show them we love them and reach out to those who seem to be hurting. Brad will be forever missed by those of us who knew him.
Bradley Malone Calhoun- September 11, 1962 – April 15, 2011
Parklane Academy Class of 1980 and original member of the Parklane Band.
The Parklane Academy Class of 1980’s hope is to combine both Brad’s love for playing in the Parklane band and his passion for helping others by creating a memorial fund in his memory.
The Brad Calhoun “For the Love of the Band” Memorial Fund will help aid and assist the Parklane Band to further the musical education of students.
Brad, you will be forever missed, but never forgotten.
