Remembering Lt. John J. Shaughnessy on Memorial Day
Our school is named after Lt. John J. Shaughnessy. Lt. Shaughnessy was a resident of Gorham Street, and one of the first residents of Lowell to enlist in World War II. Lt. Shaughnessy gave his life heroically during the Allied Forces’ “D-Day” Invasion on June 6, 1944. On behalf of the Shaughnessy community, we wanted to not only recognize John J. Shaughnessy on this Memorial Day, but also recognize the many brave men and women, who should also be remembered.
