The Passing of a Worcester Academy Icon—Tom Blackburn
The Worcester Academy community offers condolences to the family and friends of legendary WA athletic director Tom Blackburn, who passed away yesterday.
WA will share an obituary and funeral arrangements as soon as they become available.
Tom, among the most iconic and recognizable of figures at WA over the past half century, was the Academy’s longest serving athletic director (1973-2000) producing and shaping some of the most storied and successful athletic programs.
We offer our sincerest thanks to Tom for his commitment to Worcester Academy students and to their athletic and personal development. His vision, integrity, dignity, and style impacted hundreds of lives and will not be forgotten.
