Ambassadors and high school principals, Terrell Hill (High School, Inc.) and Steven Dellinger-Pate (Pathways to Technology) did an excellent job of presiding over the ceremonies, which included rousing speeches by Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Christina Kishimoto and Keith Sevigny, Annie Fisher STEM Magnet School Science teacher and Hartford’s 2012 Teacher of the Year.
