Paul W. Spooner Community Room
Nationally recognized as a leader, teacher, and warrior of equal rights for people with disabilities, Paul’s impact on those who knew him in the MetroWest Community was immeasurable.
His fortitude, commitment, and relentless efforts to make inclusion in daily living accessible to everyone will not soon be forgotten.
Paul’s contribution to the founding and development of the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority will continue to ensure that we all remember that inequity anywhere, is a threat to equal rights everywhere.
