New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft capped the Tuesday, Dec. 8, dedication of the Myra Hiatt Kraft Memorial Footbridge at Elm Park by announcing donations of $100,000 to Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Worcester Technical High School.
The day was a fitting tribute to the late Myra Kraft, daughter of famous Worcester businessman and philanthropist Jacob Hiatt and wife of Robert, who made building bridges her life’s work as a community leader and humanitarian.
