leadership, saying that “he’s been such a steady force guiding the
high school for the past 12 years.”
On Nov. 14 and 15, a ceremony will be held in Washington, D.C.,
that will honor the 312 public schools and 50 private schools as

the schools academic excellence.
According to Hattar, the plaque will be “hanging up right in front
