Juliet Burkett graduated from the in 2007. In September 2011, Burkett, 21, was in South Dakota.
The labyrinth was installed earlier this year on the MVPCS playground. “The school was looking for a unique way to enhance the playground when this idea was put forth by Teaching Facilitator, Meredith Dillon,” said Development Director Paul Karasik. A labyrinth is not a maze but more of a path leading to a central point and then out again. They are used for meditation, calming and play. According to Juliet’s father, Joe Burkett, Juliet loved to walk labyrinths.
“Labyrinths are ancient, eternal structures and this seemed like a perfect way to keep Juliet's spirit eternally alive,” said Karasik. “Juliet was like a sunbeam when she entered the schoolhouse. Her beautiful radiance had a powerfully positive effect on all who met her. We will honor her spirit on Saturday morning at 9:30 in a field of play.”
All are welcome to attend the ceremony Saturday, June 23rd at 9:30 am at the in West Tisbury.
