It is with deep sadness that we share that J. Sherman 'Sherm' McLaughlin passed away on Friday, September 15, 2017. He made an indelible mark on the school through his service as a Trustee, Board President, and Interim Head of School. He was elected the first honorary alumnus by WT alumnae in 1993.
McLaughlin joined the Board of Trustees in 1985 and ushered WT into coeducation as the Board President in the early 1990's, ultimately shaping the school community as it is today. He is remembered by the WT community for his thoughtfulness, integrity, and vision.
We express our deepest condolences to Sherm's wife, Sue, and his daughters Dorothy McLaughlin '91, Sarah McLaughlin Lee '95, and Martha McLaughlin Schloetzer '95. Read his full obituary in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
