'Sea of pink' in memory of teacher from Andover


The T-shirts grew out of an idea by Andover High School teachers Mary Robb and Dan Brennan. Robb introduced it to her Democracy and Media Literature class and the students embraced it.

Senior Nick Wall said he will wear his T-shirt to today’s football pep rally and again when he runs the Feaster Five race tomorrow morning.

“We just want to show our support to the family and this shows support,” he said.

Fellow senior Ian Bensleyser added Ritzer’s death touched many and is something “we care about.”

Robb said students in three different classes have been selling the T-shirts in the school cafeteria since Nov. 12. In addition to Robb’s class, students in a Democracy and Media Literacy class taught by Ruth Masters and an applied technology class taught by Brennan have also sold the shirts.

“We have sold hundreds ... we don’t know exactly how many ... I just put another order in,” Robb said.
