From the principal: "The most important thing that I will remember about the Class of 2011 is that they are very adept at rallying around a common goal. It doesn't take very long for this group of individuals to identify and home in on a select group-based request. They have learned early on that there is indeed strength in numbers, and they have truly bought into the concept that it's more rewarding to support the will of the majority." -- Principal Ranell Williams Jr.
