The Aurora Public Schools family is saddened by the recent passing of former Tuskegee Airman John W. Mosley. We pay tribute to his life and legacy. We are honored to open our new school this fall, which is named after Mr. Mosley and his wife, Edna. Edna Mosley was the first African-American to serve on the Aurora City Council.
APS thanks Mr. and Mrs. Mosley for their contributions to education and the betterment of all people.
