Jun 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Tribute

FROM 1947 TO 1982 the halls of Wes­ley Junior Col­lege were graced by a man named Lewis Wells. More than just a pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish and dra­mat­ic arts, Wells was a leg­end. He left an indeli­ble mark on Wes­ley Col­lege his­to­ry, mold­ing count­less stu­dents as he sought to spread a love of the arts, lit­er­a­ture, reli­gion and life to all he encoun­tered…
