Rosemont High School alum Anthony Sadler (Class of 2010) was one of three local friends who tackled a gunman on a French train last month.

“Their quick thinking and fearless action inspires us,” said Senator Jim Nielsen, who helped coordinate a parade for the men last week. “It is appropriate to honor their bravery and their spirit of selfless service.”

Sadler also attended Martin Luther King Jr. K-8 School and is remembered fondly by his former teachers.

“All of us at King who taught Anthony and his sister remember him and the family and are very proud of him and proud that he attended King,” says teacher Pamela Silva.
