LMEA Spotlight
Dear LMEA,

With great sadness, we join our community in mourning the loss of Sean Hughes, principal of Lower Merion High School. Sean was fixture in the district, having also served as a history teacher, an athletic director, and assistant principal in the years prior to becoming principal. His students adored him, and I’m sure many of you knew him personally and loved and respected him. Please know that if you need support in the coming days, you can reach out to me, HR, or take advantage of the Employee Assistance Program (24/7/365 Hotline - 1-877-240-6863). As we grieve his loss, please check in on each other and hold a thought for his family in your heart.

In Solidarity,


In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be sent to

The Sean A. Hughes Children’s Trust
P.O. Box 342
Skippack, PA. 19474-0342

Thank you
Dear all,

Thank you for the outpouring of support as we all continue to grieve the loss of Sean Hughes. We will surely continue to experience waves of sadness and remembrance, but your kindness has helped us endure; it has served as a reminder of what Sean loved about this district. As Coretta Scott King has said, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” You have given us strength, and we are grateful to be part of this thoughtful community.
