“As Principal of University High School I am always proud of our staff and what they offer students, but what truly impresses me is the dedication and hard work that my students and families put in to take advantage of all we have to offer. This award is for them. Our students and their families trust us to do our part, and when we “Shoulder Up” we can accomplish anything.”
— Sean Tomany, Principal, University High School of Science and Engineering
