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.
