PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Providence teacher who died in an accidental drowning in New Hampshire over the summer is being honored at his old school with a “Tribute Tree.”

Students, teachers, family and friends will dedicate a swamp white oak for William Glad at DelSesto Middle School on Thursday. The city of Providence will plant the tree with help from the school’s gardening club.

A plaque will bear the inscription, “Teacher, friend, brother and beloved son, he was always there to help those in need. Follow his footsteps and B glad.”

Glad was a secondary education teacher in Providence for 12 years. He had been the social studies department chair at DelSesto and the basketball coach. He previously was an assistant football coach at La Salle Academy for 10 years.
