Tuesday: Woodside Elementary honors Rudy Driscoll

 

Rudy W. Driscoll Jr., a former Woodside Elementary School District board member and school parent who died in June 2015 at the age of 47, will be honored at a school event on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Woodside Superintendent Beth Polito said an anonymous donation made in Mr. Driscoll's honor funded the refurbishing of the school's outdoor amphitheater and the replacing of its artificial turf playing field. A plaque on a bench in the redwood grove above the amphitheater will honor Mr. Driscoll, she said.

The event will start at 3:30 p.m. in the amphitheater, located at the rear of the school's playing field at 3195 Woodside Road.

Mr. Driscoll was a former Menlo Park police officer, a businessman and a philanthropist with three children in Woodside Elementary and another in college.

In addition to his three-and-a-half years on the Woodside school board, he served on the Woodside Fire Foundation Board. Through the Driscoll Foundation, he donated to his community, with an emphasis on education, including Woodside School. He also coached his sons' soccer teams.

Mr. Driscoll attended Tabor Academy high school and studied biology at Menlo College, graduating in 1990.
