New performing arts stage at Bullard Park should be named for Brennan Moody

The tragic accident that took Brennan Moody’s life touched many of us, and even though I did not have the honor of knowing Brennan, as a parent of two sons who graduated from Albion, I grieve with them as they deal with the loss of their uniquely talented son.

There was a vigil at Bullard Park, and many people were able to witness the vision of a new outdoor performance stage come to fruition. There would be no better way to honor the life, and musical aspirations of Brennan than to dedicate and name it the “Brennan Moody Memorial Performing Arts Stage.”

In addition to naming the stage in the young man’s honor, the stage provides the perfect opportunity for Albion to host a concert that showcases high school musical talent from the region. The proceeds from the event could go towards a scholarship, or to support music programs.

Most importantly, it would be an important step in the healing process for the community.
