The Red Lion Area School District and Red Lion Area Senior High School will honor one of its legendary athletic figures this week.

A large canvas print bearing the image of Ronald E. "Abe" Fitzkee will be unveiled at 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, outside of the Fitzkee Center entrance.

Fitzkee is a 1947 graduate of Red Lion and an icon in the local community. He served the school district in various roles over many decades as both a coach and an administrator.

Fitzkee will be shown his image for the first time on Tuesday. The print will hang prominently outside of the gymnasium entrance. A few remarks will be given during the brief ceremony.
