0614 Shaw Plaque
A plaque dedicated in honor of Julie Kitchings Shaw.
A plaque was dedicated at Hoover High School honoring the memory of 1989 W.A. Berry High School alumna and Hoover native Julie Kitchings Shaw. Shaw passed away from cancer in 2012.
Dozens were on hand for the ceremony including Shaw’s family, friends, classmates and teachers from her years at W.A. Berry High School. The plaque will hang in Hoover High School’s front lobby and is titled “Cherish Every Day,” a motto by which friends say Shaw lived. W.A. Berry High School coach Wayne Wood coordinated with the Shaw family to execute the event.
Julie Kitchings Shaw was a mother of two. She was involved in numerous athletic teams and extracurricular events at W.A. Berry High School. She went on to graduate from the University of Alabama in 1993. Professionally, she worked for CBS Radio in Birmingham and later in Atlanta.
