A Legacy of Learning Lives On

Gregg RoccaThroughout his long career as a school counselor, Greg Rocca touched the 

lives of thousands of elementary students. When

cancer took his life at age 52, he was even able to help students as far away as

Guatemala.

 

Greg became involved with a library fundraising project in Guatemala through his colleague

Pat Lehman, a fellow school counselor who serves on the Cincinnati advisory

board of Miracles in Action.  Gregg was the very first donor to the library. When it became clear that

Greg was in his final days, Pat, who helped spearhead fundraising for the

San Antonio Sija library, suggested dedicating it in Rocca’s honor. He died on

February 10.

On August 6, Greg’s wife, Mary Lynn Roca and several Miracles in Action volunteers took part in the dedication of the new library and computer center. Hundreds of students, parents, and community leaders gathered for the ceremony, sharing their songs and welcoming traditions. 

Making a difference … at home and in Guatemala … a legacy of learning lives on.
